Pennsylvania says: Hillary You're Hired!

Hillary came to State College tonight, and she taught us not only what she stands for, but how she will put her plans to action for America. She was well attended, and very well received. I met Mark McCracken (Democratic candidate for District 5), and saw Rick Vilello on the sidelines as well, no sign of Bill Cahir though? We waited with thousands of our closest friends in the rain to see the Senator that would be called "Madame President."

John Murtha, and Governor Rendell introduced her to the exhilarated crowd who were on their feet and eager to hear her plan for America.
Hillary started the night the way every visitor to Penn State should, with a robust:
Here is the main place she stands out from Barack Obama; where he offers inspiration on the stump, Hillary not only gives you hope, she gives you details about how she will turn America around. She was direct, and spot-on with her criticisms of Bush & McCain. She only criticised Obama on policy points, which is easy to do when he isn't willing to talk about them in any detail. We learned more about the Hillary's White House in the first 10 minutes, then we learned from Barack in an hour.
I choose Hillary because she is better prepared to lead this nation on the first day. I know many a Barack supporter that hates that argument but it's true and indisputable in my opinion. I expect a majority of PA citizens and other Americans see it that way too!
I felt like she was speaking directly to me when she compared her candidacy, and the selection of a nominee as a job application.
That is precisely how I view the campaign trail.
Hillary and Senator Obama have applied for a job, and as the employer, I have to review their credentials, their experience, and not only how they answer the tough questions, but what they say. I have to discern the "text book" answers, and the fluff from the hard facts. I am pleased to report that we have two excellent candidates that have applied for the job, but we unfortunately don't have two positions available.
Having given careful consideration to both, I am thrilled to inform Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton that her application has been approved. She has beaten out her competition in Pennsylvania, and on Tuesday we the people of Pennsylvania will be happy to say:
Hillary Clinton -- You're Hired!
In 2000, and again in 2004, this country ignored qualifications and elected the worst.president.ever. Let's not make that mistake again!
Pennsylvania, don't just hope for change. Vote for it!
Hillary Clinton for President!
