Happy Easter, Hillary!

This morning my mind turns Easter, and what it means to me. In this strange political climate, it turns out that resurrection is the goal and speciality of my chosen candidate.

Hillary Clinton has become somewhat of an icon for those that, wounded by the slings and arrows of life, need inspiration to keep battling. The personal and political beat-downs that Hillary Clinton has endured over decades would have destroyed all but the most dedicated public figures, and even her enemies seem to grudgingly acknowledge that fact.

Clinton has taken in the poisonous venom of her enemies and has become stronger.  Whenever she is on the ropes, when it seems there is no way out, Hillary rises from the ashes, stronger and more resolute.

I personally receive a lot of inspiration from this woman of steel. Life can be tough. Sometimes, when things begin spirally down in negative fashion, the tendency is to be taken down in the wash. But Hillary seldom appears to be shaken, and she always fights back. Like a lump of coal, forged in the fire and constantly under pressure, Hillary Clinton has emerged as a diamond.

Sometimes I think about what it would be like to be in her shoes. Her battles have been bloody, and yet I have come to believe she lives to fight another day because she is fighting the good fight. She feels a sense of responsibility to speak for those individuals pushed aside in this "democracy" we live in where only corporations have a voice. She has worked hard to understand the system as it currently exists, and with that knowledge appears to have devised a path to improve the lives of citizens in this dear country.    

How foolish it would be for the American people to dismiss this woman. An ability to overcome adversity is probably the single most important quality the next president will need to possess. It turns out that resurrection is Hillary Clinton's stock in trade.

Nobody's dismissing Hillary Clinton

She's still going to be a powerful senator after this election, and hopefully she'll be in the majority, so all the issues that she's passionate about will be passed through without veto.

I admire Clinton's tenacity and strength, and I think it will serve us all well in the Barack Obama administration.

Remember, folks, none of these candidates dies if they lose this one.  They'll all still be around.

Re: Happy Easter, Hillary!

Last week Hillary went to a rally in Indiana.  A lot of people couldn't get inside.  After the rally was over, Hillary went out to shake hand and give autograph to the people who couldn't get in.  

One of the supporter said I'll be fighting for you in Indiana.  She replied "No I will be fighting for you".

That is how I see Hillary.  She will be the president for the people.  She is willing to go to the mat for us.  Thank you Hillary.
