Wow! Thank you so much for this comprehensive list of what President Obama has done for

the African American Community, Frenchie!

And, appointing AG Eric Holder. for what he has Accomplished is invaluable..

America’s first black attorney general: Eric Holder’s legacy

Holder has attacked Republican efforts across the country to pass voter ID laws that would disproportionately suppress African-American and Latino voters. He issued new guidance to schools and the zero-tolerance discipline policies that have sent minority students on a fast track to the criminal justice system. He has urged the reduction of harsh sentences for low-level drug offenders — a move seen as a way of remedying the decades-long war on drugs that has filled U.S. prisons with black and brown bodies

When Holder was appointed the nation’s top lawyer in 2009, he promised to use his office to aggressively enforce civil rights law. And while he has been criticized for his role in a number of controversial policy matters involving civil liberties and a well-publicized botched gun trafficking sting, his work in enforcing rights and balancing the scales of justice, especially for minorities, has earned him high praise.
Ifill called Holder’s vision for the civil rights division of the Department of Justice “one of restoration and transformation, from his leadership on voting rights, to legal services for the poor, to criminal justice reforms and, in recent weeks, to his forceful response to the tragic events in Ferguson.”


“When the history of his tenure is written, Eric Holder will ultimately be recognized as one of the finest attorneys general this country has ever known.”

Much MOre~ http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/americas-first-black-attorney-general-eric-holders-legacy

Mahalo for pinning this!

That she is, BlueMTex! She's a Fighter anyway.. and that counting her out just makes her Stronger!

Thank you!

This is Hillary's Group compared to GD-P

No worries they always accuse others of they're doing.. just another MO.


Thank you, FrenchieCat! Hillary is the best candidate for President who will carry on President

Obama's legacy and the Progress we have already made the last 7 years!

This is one of my major issues.

Hillary attracts friendly, good-natured, loving, respectful people because she is. Who are also

strong and resourceful and you definetly want them fighting for you.

I'm so proud of her!

Hillary gains ground in New Hampshire: poll

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is cutting further into primary rival Bernie Sanders’s New Hampshire lead, picking up 7 net points overnight, according to a UMass Lowell/7 News tracking poll released Friday

The former secretary of State now trails Sanders by only 15 points before the Tuesday primary. She trailed by 31 points at the beginning of the week.


Wonder why?


President Obama said "Don't Boo, VOTE!"

Wow, they acknowledge the successes of the last 8 years! Whereas berniesanders doesn't. I wondef if that had anything to do with them endorsing Hillary Clinton.

It’s our belief that Clinton is best positioned to build on the successes of the past eight years; to make the necessary changes to the Affordable Care Act without tearing it down; to continue moving the economy in the right direction; to work to minimize the threat of climate change while creating, rather than costing, jobs; to work toward reversing the increasing disparity of wealth; and to build consensus to break through the logjam on the issues of gun violence and immigration. We also see her as more than capable of defending our national interests and serving as commander-in-chief.

Really powerful endorsement.. Thank you, rivers!

Just to be clear.. it's not a "tie" if Hillary gets 2 more delegates and she's Made History by

being the first woman to win the Iowa caucuses. You can bet your bottom dollar if BS had gotten more there would be yelling from the rooftops that he won. But, he didn't and after all the garbage he and his supporters, the GOP, and the M$M threw at Hillary; it was she who came out on Top.

And, she won many more Dems, Union Members and POC.. that cannot be discounted. berni doesn't get to horn in on that.

The state was tailor made for his demographics and he failed to close the deal. that's my take.

Now for the interesting article!

"Enough is enough. If you've got something to say, say it directly,” she challenged.

Wow.. you go Girl!

“Senator Sanders is the only person who would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment," she said. “It’s really quite amusing to me.”

She got him! bern needs to get a new buzz word.. he's already worn that out. Not sure he knows from establishment.

Thank you, DejaVu

It's so funny.. that's what I use to say about President Obama when his attackers for the last 7 years said he wasn't "progressive".. I said: "President Obama is very Progressive.. look at all the Progress he's made. They aren't interested in real progress.. they'd rather someone just talk about it.

I am looking at her, she! Those pics bring out the vibrancy and the passion that

Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly have for their Sensible Guns Laws Cause and for Hillary who is supporting them all the way!

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Gabby Giffords uses her words sparingly. After being shot in the head five years ago, the former Arizona congresswoman has had to learn how to speak all over again. But come next January, there are two words she wants to be able to say: "Madam President."

That's what we all want to hear Gabby.. we are so with you!
