I have not been a strong supporter of HIllary Clinton.
Point of fact, I desperately wanted Senator Bernie Sanders as our nominee in 2016.
I’ve had numerous issues with Hillary Clinton on policy over the decades, and never felt like I was comfortable with her as an elected official.
I thought I’d never be able to get on board with the 2016 Clinton campaign.
I still can’t bring myself to read the Hillary Views and News posts.
I was not feeling confident or happy one iota about this week’s Convention events.
But as I watched today’s events, like the moment when Senator Sanders watched his brother cast a ballot for him from Democrats Abroad and spoke of their late parents, and as the Mothers of the BLM Movement took the stage and Sybrina Fulton spoke of her son, Trayvon?
Something changed for me. As I watched speaker after speaker refer to this historic day it brought out a feeling in me that I never thought to have about Hillary Clinton. I got weepy-eyed and felt the pride of Sisterhood in her accomplishment.
When she says things like this, you can hear in her voice she means it:
So here’s to our nominee for President of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton. #GlassCeiling breaker of historic proportions. She’s made it into the history books already, by just being the nominee. But what do you say, we help her make it onto another page, by shattering that final barrier, by winning the White House in November.
No matter what path you trod in this campaign, no matter where you started or who you were pulling for, in the end, let us stand #StrongerTogether and help Hillary kick Donald Trump’s ass right back into the gutter where he belongs this November 8th!
One great way to take the first step in accomplishing that?
Go to www.Democrats.org and sign up to help Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine win in November right on their front page.
