Clinton Rallies the Troops for Obama!

Former President Bill Clinton is obviously still conflicted as he speaks, but he has sealed the deal when in comes to Barack Obama.

 

The wounds are healing as he settles in to the fact that Hillary will not be the next President of the United States. There are times that I wish Hillary were on the ticket at least as Vice President, a woman with knowledge and experience to lead the Country. Often I wonder if Sarah Palin took notes to how brilliant this woman was in delivery and knowledge. She missed an important lesson on how a female candidate gets respect. Its not cutesy, its standing ground on issues and having the knowledge.

 

Hillary would have won the nomination if not for Obama being a candidate in the 2008 presidential race. This is behind us now as we move into the ending of the election process, and where Bill was slow to come out the gate for Obama, he has turned up the energy and began supporting the candidate fully.

 

There is only so much one can expect, he is married to Hillary and a certain amount of alliance is and will be in order. On the other hand no matter what can be said of the Clintons they are in it for the party and the people, when it’s all said and done the family picks up those marbles and plays with the other kids again. Its life and these two remember their own very similar journey to the white house.

 

One can say much about Hillary Clinton, but as a candidate and as a woman she was outstanding. She made women across America proud. It was a tough race, and it was equally tough on many voters. There were many women including African American women supporting Hillary. These women related more to her as a woman than to race being a factor with Obama.

 

Thanks to Hillary women were represented by a true professional. Although many of her supporters are still upset, even more have rallied behind Obama to close the deal in November. The gift of a bad economy which is compliments of the current administration is also helping to bring even more supporters to the democratic ticket.

 

The economy is one area which eliminates party line, gender and all other areas which seem pretty trivial when you can’t afford to live, buy food, maintain a small business, or unsure if your savings will allow for retirement. That’s what really matters when its all said and done, people realize this is politics, but real life is what your check book shows, and how your family can or can’t survive.
