I’ve admired Hillary Clinton since her husband was running for office and the media viewed her as “not befitting of a First Lady.” I loved it when she was questioned about continuing her law career and was asked if she could be the First Lady and she said, “I’m not going to sit at home baking cookies–I’m not some Tammy Wynette sitting here just “standing by my man”. I have a life! I have a career!”And she was freaking crucified in the press.
I watched as Hillary Clinton stayed with Bill through his affair and saw those who believe in traditional marriage trash her because she “stood by her man.”
I watched as she ran for president with more experience, more guts, more intelligence than her main competition in 2008. I watched her bow out and back Barack Obama because it was best for the country.
I watched in ’08 when she was trashed over her hair, her clothes, her make up. I watched her come near tears in interview after interview because she was treated differently than all the men.
In 2008, I was in a similar position. I watched man after man without my credentials get promotion after promotion.
I watched Hillary’s campaign and saw how she was treated. I realized if they treat the most powerful woman in the world that way, what chance would I ever possibly have?
We need a female president. We have the chance to elect the most intelligent, driven, amazing woman we’ve ever had to look up to in this country.
I heard a man at work the other day (a liberal, democrat man), say he just didn’t think he could vote for Hillary because she seems “so mean.”
She’s had to be tough. Yes, she’s had to be mean. Apparently, nice gals get nowhere here. I will vote for Hillary. Primary. General.
I’m ready. I’m ready for Hillary.
