Sometimes things get better with age. I think Hillary Clinton is one of them. This time around, unlike 2008, she seems more self-assured and calmer. Perhaps it’s because she’s finally out of Bill’s shadow, so to speak. Secretary of State does that to you, giving you a chance to play on the world’s big stage. Perhaps that’s why up until Truman, the Secretary of State was third in line for the Presidency.
Hillary has worked hard, studied behind the master (her husband), and is ready to run and ready to govern.
And who knew that her competition would be the insane Trump, a reality show host with nothing to offer but arrogance and ignorance who traffics in fear and hate? And Bernie Sanders, barely a Democrat (became one this year)equally angry and barely more substance? This might be the year when a woman’s approach might smooth the anger, might be the solution to rage-a mindless rage that only seeks victims and a reason to rage against change.
Of course, nothing comes easy-the higher the stakes, the harder the work. I’m sure Hillary knows this-and knows she needs the help from many. I decided to become one of the helpers.I’ve already signed up to volunteer for the campaign, am already registered to vote, and have the necessary id. In later posts, I plan to do whatever little I can to help you do the same.
