44. It's great to hear that kind of story about a person who
to most of us exists on TV screens and far away stages in cavernous halls. It offers a priceless insight into who an otherwise distant figure, in this case Hillary Clinton, really is as a human being. Some potential or actual leaders really are arrogant at their core by now, others retain that essential warm sincerity that you describe your friends finding in Hillry.

It is a shame that in modern society with our tens of millions of citizen voters stories like the one your friends told you about a possible future President, Hillary Clinton, get lost as they become one step further removed in each relaying from the people who were there to actually experience her in private. Fortunately for us here though, through our long months spent together on this board, hearing you tell it is almost as real as hearing it from your friends themselves.
