Clinton is the clear choice for president

 Hillary Clinton

This one is a tad ascerbic.  Just to make a point here, it is no fault of Hillary’s or of her campaign that things are ugly.  Hillary is trying to campaign on the issues that matter to Americans.  Donald Trump chooses to spend his rally hours attacking her rather than talk about the issues except to say that he will “fix” things.  Hillary is full of ideas and plans.  Trump is bankrupt and goes on personal attacks since he is running on empty.

In an ugly election, the choice is clear: Hillary Clinton for president

This one is historic.

Why Latina magazine broke a 20-year tradition and endorsed their first presidential candidate ever.

“This is the moment when we can determine that an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.”

Never before in the 20-year history of Latina has the magazine endorsed a candidate—until today.But as the magazine noted, this is not an ordinary election. So, Latina broke tradition, joining forces with leaders in media and business, artists, and influencers to send a strong message thru fliers, media and even house to house campaign, even radios when you are inside your home or on a brand new car of yours bought at contract hire. the Message will deliver to you that we stand together to endorse Hillary Clinton for president.The roster includes powerhouse Latinos and organizations: Dolores Huerta, Eva Longoria, John Leguizamo, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Dulce Candy Ruiz, Roselyn Sánchez, and others.

The overall message was clear—the Latino community has the power to change this election.

Hillary and the Democratic Party stand firmly against privatization.

Hillary Clinton Statement on Social Security Act Anniversary 

Today, on the 81st anniversary of the Social Security Act, Hillary Clinton issued the following statement:

“For eighty-one years, Social Security has been America at its best. It reflects our shared belief that every American should be able to retire with dignity after decades of hard work. That no American should face poverty because he or she is disabled. That we are stronger together.

“Social Security benefits 59 million Americans today—but Republicans are relentlessly trying to attack and undermine this bedrock American guarantee. They want to cut benefits and gamble seniors’ retirement security on the stock market through privatization.

“And Donald Trump is no different—just look who he chose as his running mate. Mike Pence spent his time in Congress championing efforts to dismantle Social Security—and to privatize it even faster than President George W. Bush and Paul Ryan proposed.

“We cannot and we will not stand for that. When I served in the Senate, I helped lead the fight against the Bush privatization scheme. Instead of cutting or privatizing Social Security, we will defend and expand it.

“When President Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law, he said it ‘represents a cornerstone in a structure which is being built but is by no means completed.’ Social Security works, but we can make it better. Millions of women—and men—who are widowed or who take time out of the paid workforce to raise a child or care for a sick family member are being left behind. As President, I’ll expand benefits to cover these hardworking Americans, because no one should have to live in poverty because their spouse died or they did the vital work of taking care of a loved one.

“Social Security isn’t just a program—it’s a promise. And I won’t stop fighting until every American shares fully in that promise.”

Hold your horses!  But do not hold your vote!  When Hillary decides to own this primary, we own it and we win, but not until that moment.

I do not know why AP came out with this massaged total tonight.  But if you are in a final Super Tuesday state, please do NOT take this as  signal not to vote tomorrow!

Every vote counts!  Every delegate counts!

You may have seen this.

Here is Hillary’s response.

 

Pay no attention to the men working the curtain!  Do go vote tomorrow.  Do not let this stop you from voting!  New Jersey, California, New Mexico, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota: Absolutely go vote in the morning!

From the campaign:

“This is an important milestone, but there are six states that are voting Tuesday, with millions of people heading to the polls, and Hillary Clinton is working to earn every vote. We look forward to Tuesday night, when Hillary Clinton will clinch not only a win in the popular vote, but also the majority of pledged delegates.”
 
— Campaign Manager Robby Mook

Keep fighting for a more equal America

Hillary Clinton: We need to continue to fight discrimination at all levels of government
We must ensure America remains on the right side of history, she says

“Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president. The opinions expressed in this commentary are hers.”

(CNN)As we enter Pride Month, and reflect on what has transpired in the last year, it’s clear that America took some big steps forward in our ongoing fight for equality.
Marriage equality is the law of the land. The federal government and U.S. military’s nondiscrimination policies now cover sexual orientation. Adoption by same-sex couples is finally legal in every state.

And in communities across the country, high schools are celebrating same-sex prom kings and queens. Transgender people have been living with greater openness and joy. There’s no denying that our country is moving forward.
Now we need to make sure America remains on the right side of history. We’re already seeing efforts to reverse the gains we’ve made in statehouses and courthouses across the country. Not to mention, there’s an election going on — and it would be all too easy for our next president to roll back much of the progress we have made.
Enter Donald Trump, who has pledged to do just that.

Given the title, I dove into Mark Landler’s How Hillary Clinton Became a Hawk prepared for fury – mine.  How, I wondered, can the New York Times, which endorsed her, feature such an article on the eve of five – count ’em – important primaries in the east?  But titles can be deceiving.  They are meant to draw.  I have been advised many times that my titles are not snappy enough, but it’s hard to evoke snap when you have also been advised that titles lacking Hillary’s full name are less likely to be gathered by internet crawlers that aggregate news about her. If you want the traffic, you have to dull it down to mundane Google-bait.

In the flurry of interviews that preceded the New York primary, there was one – and I forget which one now – in which Hillary was asked if she is a hawk.  She responded very carefully by differentiating hawkishness from support of the military and emphasizing that she is running to be commander-in-chief, a position that presupposes support of the military.  Judging from the title of Landler’s piece I was prepared for a polemic asserting her hawkishness.  What I found instead was a chronological analysis of her core attitude toward the military. It is fascinating, enlightening, and endearing.

Landler provides behind-the-scenes glimpses into military questions that played out partially in the public eye on the news and largely behind the secure walls of the Situation Room and other recesses of state. To know that Hillary, as a Senator, took the time and trouble to visit every military base in New York state and assess the impact on the wider civilian population of closing any of them is testament to her gritty approach to any work we, as her constituents, assign her.

While the article focuses on Hillary’s relationship with the military, its implications are wider in scope. Her style as a leader leaps from the page. She is a go-getter.  She gets the the people, the information, and the materials and briefs she needs to decide a position and then to make her case. This is how she operates, and it is impressive.

If you love Hillary – or think you do – from what you know now,  you will love her even more when she goes to Fort Drum, home of the Army’s 10th Mountain Division (where my dad trained), takes off her shoes, puts her feet on the coffee table and asks a General where a gal can get a cold beer.  That is my commander-in-chief!  That’s our Hillary!

So I strongly recommend, even though we all have a load of work to do over the next few days, that you plan to take a quiet break at some point, put your feet up, and read this article.  You will be glad for the information it provides, ammo for the battles we face, and for the pleasure of the read.

IS Hillary Clinton a hawk?  This sentence says it all, and we have heard her say this in town halls when asked: “She would look at military force as another realistic option, but only where there is no other option.”

Hillary Clinton sat in the hideaway study off her ceremonial office in the State Department, sipping tea and taking stock of her first year on the job. The study was more like a den — cozy and wood-paneled, lined with bookshelves that displayed mementos from Clinton’s three decades in the public eye: a statue of her heroine, Eleanor Roosevelt; a baseball signed by the Chicago Cubs star Ernie Banks; a carved wooden figure of a pregnant African woman. The intimate setting lent itself to a less-formal interview than the usual locale, her imposing outer office, with its marble fireplace, heavy drapes, crystal chandelier and ornate wall sconces. On the morning of Feb. 26, 2010, however, Clinton was talking about something more sensitive than mere foreign affairs: her relationship with Barack Obama. To say she chose her words carefully doesn’t do justice to the delicacy of the exercise. She was like a bomb-squad technician, deciding which color wire to snip without blowing up her relationship with the White House.
