Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton swept the Southern states today in a major victory that, with any luck for our country, will herald her eventual election.
My bumper sticker arrived just in time for Super Tuesday. Finally - a chance for a real leader whose spent her career fighting for justice and equality. In my years of experience on political campaigns at the national, state and local levels, working with elected officials and corporate heads, Hillary Clinton stands above most in her intelligence and integrity and willingness to fight the tough battles. The country missed its opportunity eight years ago and look what we have to show for it. I've seen Hillary speak in person, twice, and she is electric and authentic. This is a good day for America. As we watched her speech today I was telling my seven year-old all the great things she has done in her past - especially for children. My son said, "Wow - it sounds like we need someone like that!" I encourage people to pick up biographies of her solid achievements and stop reading propaganda trying to smear her.
As I wrote in the London Guardian and Huffington Post eight years ago, Hillary actually has the experience and courage to do all the things Barack promised to do but wouldn't. Both the Guardian and Huffington Post stopped publishing my pieces during the 2008 primary once they realized I was the rare progressive pointing out that Barack had never been and never would be progressive. Turns out I was right.
Once elected, Barack abandoned most of his promises and hewed to his major donors: corporate Wall Street fat cats. I am agog at so many Bernie fans who are highly emotional against Hillary for taking Wall Street contributions, when they supported Barack whose primary donation base was Wall Street money. I will soon get back to publishing regularly on this website HowDareShe.com.
