as a hardend former hillary supporter myself i agree about her iraq war vote losing the nomination for her. but i was never a single issue voter. let's not forget obama barely won the nomination over her. he did not win the nomination in a walk. the general was easy over mccain after the wall street meltdown late sept. i was anti-iraq war from the start. that said i thought she was the best of the lot. the race is over so i hope she will flourish at the state dept.
you should be proud of being into politics at a young age. at age of 7 or 8 i was in the livingroom with my grandfather watching pre. jimmy carter giving a speech to congress. my grandfather was a strong union deomcrat. most kids would be out playing or wanting to watch cartoons but i stayed thru the entire state of the union speech. i asked grandaddy is that the president of the us?" he replied yes. i followed the 1980 race a little, still too young to understand fully. then came 1984 at age 14. BOOM! i watched most of the primary debates between mondale, hart, and jackson. watched both conventions like religion. i supported walter mondale for president. my grandfather supported jackson. i remember my grandfather taking me with him to vote for mondale at our local highschool. he took me in the voting booth with him and showed me how to vote. mondale/ferarro all the way. well on election night he got clobberd. my grandfather knew mondale had little chance but as a kid i did not understand why america wanted reagan in again. 1988 was my first vote and dukakis was it. he was an awful candidate. the wife and i voted absentee for obama/biden last week.
