A fantastic speech!!! A fantastic convention all around!!

Ready to fight and vote for Hillary.


Show some basic courtesy!

Cagney and Lacey!

They had Sharon Gless and Tyne Daley with the Broadway singers...Cagney and Lacey...feminist icons..portrayed by two great women!!!

I'm still voting for her-- but don't expect me to be enthused with this VP pick

Sorry...I think once again this is a play it safe move and snubbing the liberal base. She had options. Again, don't get me wrong, I'm still voting for her, but I'm not going to be posting happy flappy posts about how excited I am about this ticket.

Hillary made her pick. She wants me to get excited about it...her campaign's got a lot of work to do.


Brilliant Move Democrats! Starve the Media Attention Away From Trump

The Democratic party was brilliant today. Notice how they have totally dominated the narrative? We have the sit in the House led by Rep. John Lewis (talk about an American hero). Then we just had Hillary's speech with a lot of talk about her campaigning with Elizabeth Warren next week.

Notice how Trump's speech is getting third billing?

Not only is the Democratic party being shown in action but they are starving the media attention away from Trump.

So proud of my community - Bloomington, In Vigil for Orlando

I've been in Bloomington since '86. It's always had a very strong and vibrant LGBTQ community. I've been an ally here all that time. I know the full spectrum of the rainbow when it comes to the community. I know it was rocked hard by the events in Orlando.

It's why I'm so touched 1,000 plus people turned out for the vigil that was held last night! All members of the Bloomington community were represented. It was organized by our local Pride organization.

This was a beautiful event.


Can we please just stop it?

With all that's gone on this this week...please can we just stop?

Look, I voted for Bernie in the primaries. I'm thrilled at what he's done and I want him to continue his influence at the Convention. I want that energy. I want his input. I want the issues he believes in upfront.

However, I'm voting for Hillary. I don't think she's the devil incarnate. Is she flawed, yes. Is she better than Trump? IMHO, Hell yes!

As far as who fellow Bernie supporter should vote for...that's for their conscience to decide. Can't vote for Hillary, then don't. Vote for Jill. Vote another party. I would pray you don't vote, Trump but again that's for you to decide.

I hope though that whatever you do, you vote. Even if all you do is vote for local offices because that's where real change happens. That's a real revolution. You want to change the system? You want to change thing? Show up EVERY election, get involved in the process and vote a progressive from school board member to dog catcher to local party chairman.

Also, can we stop sniping at each other? Can we stop falling into the trap of "us" vs "them"..here? If nothing else, stop all this trying to prove how "corrupt" or "evil" or "bad" so and so is. For every article and spin someone throws out about Hillary someone's got a counter. For every article and spin someone throws out about Bernie...someone's got a counter. If this was all *healthy* debate I would be cheering. However, it just seems anymore it's about how nasty can it get.

Politics is passionate. It's just please, can we remember that many of us here want many of the same things; maybe not always exactly...but in general we have common interests.

I'm looking toward November...and it's not Bernie I'm worried about. It's the GOP. It's Trump. I thought the lowest this country could go was George W. Bush. I can't even conceive of the nightmare of a Pres. Trump. So, that's where my energy will be focused, defeating the GOP. The way I'm going to do it, is support Hillary. Doesn't mean I'm going to demonize Bernie, because why would I? He represents so much good that needs to be done. We need that balance, that counter weight to keep pulling us to the left.

I hope those who move forward who can't support Hillary will at least turn their energy towards the GOP.

Overall though, I hope we can stop going at each other.


Hoosier Here- Voted Bernie but ready to Vote Hillary

So where I'm at there are a LOT of Bernie signs. I'm in a rare "blue" part of the state. Anyway the turnout looks good from what I saw at the polls today when I went to vote as well as from my FB feed. Most of the people I know are leaning Bernie so will see what happens. I also know many of them also vow to vote for Hillary if she gets the nom.

Meanwhile in my home town which is in one of the reddest of the red parts of the states it sounds like my cousins are resigning themselves to supporting Trump. Don't get it. They don't like him. Additionally, I can tell from the few people on my FB feed from HS that Trump is their candidate. I'm surmising then Trump must be the candidate then in that area.

So glad my Dad and my step-mom are sane people so family visit won't be awkward.

Still, not looking forward to visiting the area for the rest of the election cycle.
