Oh she was gorgeous - Hillary Clinton

05/06/2008

Well, that's it then. Curtain call. Or maybe not? Maybe Barack Obama will kindly give Hillary Clinton a place in his administration. A place where this phenomenal brain can be set to work. A place where she can maybe bring about the dream of universal healthcare for all in the United States.

In the meantime, here is a toast to Senator Clinton. For running a good campaign. For reaching out to the gay community. For the graceful way in which she took all the crap that was slung her way. And here is to her place in history; along with Barack Obama, the first black man to be nominated as a party candidate for the presidency of the US.

As a team Hillary member, I am trying not to feel just a little bit over-annoyed that he is standing where Senator Clinton should be standing. It would have been a true victory for women, in the US and elsewhere, had Mrs Clinton cinched the nomination.

Hopefully, she doesn't run for veep but follows the example of people such as Al Gore, who went on to put their power and brains to work elsewhere. Iwait, with bated breath... And, to be honest, I weep at the idea of President McCain.

Like Pelosi said, the day before yesterday, it's a huge step Hillary has taken, to break down the marble ceiling for woman.

Fero, I second that. Let's hope more will follow suit.

I had wanted her to win from the outset. A shame that she's now out of the running. I'm intrigued how things will pan out between McCain and Obama.

I am downright freaked out about the possibility of McCain being elected. Freaked out because I have this very bad feeling...

If that happens, will you take us in?

Lula de Montes said...

@Vikki: sure, why not? Although I always say that you can do more by staying and trying to bring about a tide of change, slow as it is.

@Bun: I fear that it will be McCain. Which will be an interesting combo is there is a conservative PM in the UK.

Realistically, we could never leave. Well, we could but we wouldn't. My only hope is that, if it is McCain, that it will finally put people over the edge and make way for real change. Yesterday, with complete confidence, a friend of mine told me, "I have no doubt that Obama will be the next president of the United States." I am holding her to that!
