Why Electing Hillary in 16 Is More Important Than Electing Obama in 08
A former Obama 08 speechwriter explains how and why Secretary Clinton is a lot more compelling than you might think.
I hear youre still not Ready for Hillary.
I get it. I didnt start off as her biggest fan either. During the 2008 campaign, I wrote plenty of less-than-complimentary words about Hillary Clinton in my role as Barack Obamas speechwriter. Then, a few weeks after the election, I had a well-documented run-in with a piece of cardboard that bore a striking resemblance to the incoming Secretary of State.
It was one of the stupider, more disrespectful mistakes Ive made, and one that could have cost me a job if Hillary hadnt accepted my apology, which she did with grace and humor. As a result, I had the chance to serve in the Obama administration with someone who was far different than the caricature I had helped perpetuate.
The most famous woman in the world would walk through the White House with no entourage, casually chatting up junior staffers along the way. She was by far the most prepared, impressive person at every Cabinet meeting. She worked harder and logged more miles than anyone in the administration, including the president. And shed spend large amounts of time and energy on things that offered no discernible benefit to her political futuresaving elephants from ivory poachers, listening to the plight of female coffee farmers in Timor-Leste, defending LGBT rights in places like Uganda.
Most of alland you hear this all the time from people whove worked for herHillary Clinton is uncommonly warm and thoughtful. She surprises with birthday cakes. She calls when a grandparent passes away. She once rearranged her entire campaign schedule so a staffer could attend her daughters preschool graduation. Her husband charms by talking to you; Hillary does it by listening to younot in a head-nodding, politician way; in a real person way.
This same story has repeated itself throughout Clintons career: those who initially view her as distrustful and divisive from afar find her genuine and cooperative in person. It was the case with voters in New York, Republicans in the Senate, Obama people in the White House, and heads of state all over the world. Theres a reason being Americas chief diplomat was the specific job Obama asked Hillary to doshe has the perfect personality for it.

The 2016 election was and is a major turning point for our country.
I watched a little news yesterday & some women from AL were interviewed. They are so terrified of the "democratic agenda" that they would rather vote for Moore than Jones, or not vote at all. This is what three decades of hate radio has done. Convinced rural America that only they are true Americans and that the dems are evil & as bad as Satan.
