Hillary Clinton, Free to Speak Her Mind...NY Times Article - good read

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/08/opinion/sunday/hillary-clinton-free-to-speak-her-mind.html?emc=edit_nk_20170408&nk1=true&nl=nickkristof&nlid=54183233&te=1&_r=1

In the most wrenching, humiliating way possible, Hillary Clinton has been liberated. She is now out of the woods again, and speaking her mind.

In her first interview since the election, she acknowledged that she had expected to defeat Donald Trump and that the outcome had been so devastating.

I just had to make up my mind that, yes, I was going to get out of bed, and, yes, I was going to go for a lot of long walks in the woods. And I was going to see my grandchildren a lot and spend time with my family and my friends. They have rallied around me in an amazing way.

As a person, Im O.K., she said. As an American, Im pretty worried.

1. One of the comments is bang on : "Unhelpful baggage" ..

"Diane : "Unhelpful baggage". It's funny that we say that about every highly qualified Democratic candidate that the right destroys politically. They turned a boy scout into the worlds greatest liar, a war hero into a coward and a traitor, and a highly qualified woman into an incompetent buffoon. And every time we blame the victim instead of focusing our energy on stopping them the next time."

Every single word of that.

6. Yes! The rightwing media lies to destroy Dems, and we fault the candidates.

4. Excellent read.

Loved this - The things that come out of some of these mens mouths! Like, why do we have to cover maternity care? Well, I dont know, maybe you were dropped by immaculate conception?

I hope she stays public and vocal.

Yes, what could have been.

5. Nick Kristof is great - one of best news analysts today

(Except his articles about chemicals are a bit scientifically suspect. Not wrong totally, perhaps, but weak.)
