“If you worried about my age, it was unnecessary,” she said.

Ginsburg is now 86 and entering her 27th year on the court. She and the Clintons reminisced about the old days at an annual lecture named for her.

Bill Clinton repeated that he knew within 10 minutes of interviewing then-Judge Ginsburg that he would offer her the job, although his first choice was New York Gov. Mario Cuomo.

Hillary Clinton said she liked to think she had something to do with Ginsburg’s nomination as well. “I may have expressed an opinion or two about people he should move up” the list of possibilities, she said.

His daughter Adia quoted Eminem. Kweisi Mfume quoted Sartre and Frost. Staffer Harry Spikes quoted Bruce Lee and The Lion King. And, of course, many quoted Elijah Eugene Cummings, aka ‘Bobby.’  It was a celebratory sendoff for a true Lion of the House. The recessional was ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ as you have never heard it before. We will not see his like.

Statement from President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Representative Elijah Cummings

Elijah Cummings was a resounding voice of moral courage who fought the good fights for the people of Baltimore, and faithfully honored his oath to protect and defend the Constitution with a passion, skill, determination, and dignity rarely matched in our history.  He worked for affordable, quality health care, educational and economic opportunities, and environmental justice for all Americans.  And he led the House Committee on Oversight and Reform in finding facts, exposing fictions, and demanding that our government be accountable.  Hillary and I are grateful to have served with him and for his friendship.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Maya and the Cummings family.

She is correct, of course.

 


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Hillary Clinton is imploring Minnesota Democrats to get out and vote in the 2020 election because the presidential race is shaping up to be “very, very close.”

The former secretary of state and presidential candidate and her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, made a stop in Minneapolis Thursday night to promote their new book “The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.”

Clinton says her narrow margin of victory over Donald Trump in Minnesota in 2016 has the president and his supporters focused on flipping the state next year. She says Minnesotans should “start right now thinking about how to reach out and talk to people” to make the case for a change in the White House.

Onward Together!

Last month, I joined our friends at the Albert Shanker Institute and the American Federation of Teachers for a conference on the ways we can protect and defend American democracy. In my opening remarks, I spoke about the risks that voter suppression, fake news, and a lack of election security pose to our country’s very foundation.

The founders of four Onward Together partner and grantee organizations also joined the conference as panelists that day: Eric Holder of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, Andrew Gillum of Forward Florida, Leah Greenberg of Indivisible, and María Teresa Kumar of Voto Latino.

Watch what we had to say here.

Meanwhile, it’s a busy time for all of the groups we work with. Our friends at Run for Something Action Fund have just launched WhereCanIRun.org, an all-new site that helps potential candidates decide where, how, and when to run for office. Dream Big Nevada, one of our grantee organizations, is raising money to cover DACA renewal fees for eligible young people — and you can contribute today.

As always, I’m grateful to have you on this team.

Onward!

Hillary
