"The Hillary Clinton I Know" - written by a longtime progressive

Wow - I'm kinda speechless.

This was a WUNNNNNderful read, from the perspective of a longtime progressive who seems greatly and honestly sympathetic to the Bernie supporters and progressives who think they have a clear picture of who she is.

Humbly submitted. I learned some things about her that I did not know, before, too.

4. I finally got it to open!

What a wonderful article. A truly great read.



Another thing I loved about Hillary was the way she mentored and empowered progressive women and women of color. Her Chief of Staff, Maggie Williams, is an African-American woman who had come out of the Children's Defense Fund. Her Deputy COS, Melanne Verveer, had come out of People For the American Way. Her scheduler (and later 2008 campaign manager), Patti Solis, was a feisty young Latina. Her eventual COS at the State Dept, Cheryl Mills, is African-American. Two great young women of color, Huma Abedin (still on her staff) and Neera Tanden (now President of the Center for American Progress, a leading progressive think tank) started out as very young women in her office, and she saw their potential and mentored them into the powerhouses they now become. Hillary's office was a dynamic place in the Clinton administration, where many of the most progressive people and ideas found their champion.



I am so proud to stand for her as she will be standing for me...for ALL of us.

Thanks so much for this post, calimary.

10. It's nice to see the other side of things also

I think we need to get the money out of politics, as said. I hope she can do away with Citizens United either with her own Supreme Court nominees, or a constitutional amendment.
