But I thought we didn't nominate Bernie Sanders...... '-)

I'm seeing Hillary, but I'm hearing Bernie!

Especially the parts about "corporations taking tax breaks with one hand, and handing out pink slips with the other" and making sure Wall Street never brings us so low again, and a bunch of other things...


(Not that it makes any difference, but) she does look good tonight, doesn't she?

I appreciate very much that Hillary has incorporated so many of these issues, in the words she has chosen, into her acceptance speech tonight, and said to Bernie voters, "I've heard you!"

I can't say that this isn't the best speech of her life. I think maybe it is.

Of course, talk is one thing, and actions another, but I'm willing to give her the chance...
And I am glad women are finally getting their shot at the White House.


Never thought I'd be here saying this, but---

I'm With Her!

But this one is definitely better. She's projecting hope and optimism combined with realism. Compare that to Trump and I don't see how any sane person can think there's actually a choice.

She looks great! And she sounds great.

Just possibly she is great.

Okay, okay, I'm with her.
