Hillary Clinton Is More Than a President - "I love Hillary"

http://www.elle.com/culture/career-politics/a40811/hillary-clinton-is-more-than-a-president/

I so agree... When anyone here or in real life bashes Hillary, I will say or write "I love Hillary"

------------------

When people told me they hated Hillary Clinton or (far worse) that they were "not fans," I wish I had said in no uncertain terms: "I love Hillary Clinton. I am in awe of her. I am set free by her. She will be the finest world leader our galaxy has ever seen."

I wish, in those exchanges, I had not asked gentle, tolerant questions about a hater's ridiculous allergy to her, or to her fictional misdeeds and imagined character flaws. More deeply still, I wish I had not reasoned with anyone, or patiently countered their ludicrous emotionalism and psychologically disturbed theories. I wish I had said, flatly, "I love her." As if I had been asked about my mother or daughter. No defensiveness or polemics; not dignifying the crazy allegations with so much as a Snopes link.

Maybe "I love her" seemed too womany, too sentimental, too un-pragmatic. Not coalition-building, kind of culty. But people say with impunity they love Obama, the state of Israel, their churches, Kurt Cobain. In the end, I wish I'd said it because it's true.

1. That's good. I like it. Me too.

I want to see how many people I can drive crazy with it.

I'm still with H---->er

3. I wish I'd been bolder, too.

I have a real fight or flight tendency though - and I don't trust myself not to come on too strong when writing.

My bad.

7. She is free now.

No congress, or uneducated voters, to put up roadblocks for her now...she can turn her considerable talents and connections towards anything she chooses.

9. Democrats have quite a braintrust in soon to be or former

Presidents. She can ad to that list as a former politician and secretary of state.
