First, you know... screw the Democrats for torturing us with THREE awesome candidates this year. Why can you all just take turns? Or why can't Obama just put on his training wheels and make a deal to be the VP for Hil?
At any rate, because the only thing I hate more than, say, rape and genocide, is a Chicago accent (I know, I know... there goes like 20 readers. Whoops...) I was thinking for that reason alone, I would have to give up my longtime support of Hillary because I wouldn't be able to listen to that voice for 4 years. I was getting on the Obama wagon.
But then I saw this and I thought... wow. All these years of Bush and his kind of false anger and his dopey, baseless swagger? Imagine someone who knows how to broker a deal that will stick. Imagine someone tough enough to survive some major slings and arrows and be ready - still - to fight.
I don't honestly care - sincerely - when we get a black president or a woman president. I do care, however, about putting someone brainy and effective back in the White House. And there is no question it will happen - it's a glorious election (thank you term limits!). But seeing this reminded me, she's indefatigable. Barak probably is, too, but he could use another 8 years in office to cut his teeth and grow the thick skin that this badass Hillary has.
