From the Super Volunteers:

Hillary: “I will be thankful for the opportunity to continue my service on behalf of the causes and values that are important to me. I will be thankful that many people across our country are assuming an active role as being citizens and speaking out and standing up, which is in the best tradition of America. So I will be thankful, as always, for our country. I am fundamentally optimistic and confident, and despite what I see as some very big flashing warning lights going off, I believe in our resilience, and I hope that you know, we will have a very happy and successful new year.”

Thanks to Hillary in Pictures for this.

I am thankful for being on earth contemporaneously with Hillary Clinton who continues to lead, to lend her wisdom, and to stand as a role model for us all.

We are thankful for the history you made and your courage both in the fight and afterwards sharing your story.

Happy Thanksgiving, Mme. Secretary from all of us here!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

(I am thankful for our Constitution and for term limits. Trump cannot last forever.)

Hillary’s memoir of the 2016 election is #1 on Time Magazine‘s non-fiction list for 2017!  Well done, Mme. Secretary! It was a great read. We agree with Time.

 

1. What Happened, Hillary Clinton

Clinton offers one answer to the question that rang collectively from more than half the country on Nov. 9, 2016. The writing is frank, reflective and a piece of modern history.

Westchester resident and 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attracted a record crowd at The Business Council of Westchester’s  (BCW) Annual Fall Dinner held Monday, Nov. 20 at The Hilton Westchester with overflow tables that spilled out into the hallway.

The former first lady, secretary of state and U.S. senator from New York was at the Rye Brook hotel to receive the Westchester Global Leadership Laureate Award.

She was greeted — after a speech by BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon — with a standing ovation, rousing applause, and even a “We love you Hillary” shouted from a group in the back of the room.

After a brief mention about how crazy the electon was — she drew laughter from the audience when she referenced the recent Westchester county executive race between Democrat George Latimer and two-term Repulican Rob Astorino (as opposed to her own) — she spoke about lessons learned from the 2016 Presidential campaign.

“People often ask me, since the election, how I am,” said Clinton. “And I say, as a person, I’m good. But as an American, I’m concerned.”

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KATV) — Bill and Hillary Clinton returned to their humble political beginnings in Little Rock, Arkansas on Saturday to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Bill Clinton’s presidential election victory and the 13th anniversary of the Clinton Presidential Center’s grand opening.

The event brought together Clinton’s campaign staff and the friends and family who played a role in the 1992 election.

Sheila Bronfam is a long-time friend of Bill Clinton and had a hand in creating the Arkansas Travelers more than 25 years ago. The Travelers were a group of roughly 600 campaign volunteers who toured the United States, urging people to vote for former President Clinton.

“It’s really, really humbling. Not many people ever get to know a president of the United States personally, so it’s a lot of fun,” Bronfam said. “He tends to keep his friends together. And so we like to do that and we’re happy to celebrate his legacy.”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, relayed stories from their lives in public service to thousands in downtown Little Rock on Saturday evening, commemorating the 25th anniversary of Bill Clinton’s first presidential victory.

More than 3,000 people filled the Statehouse Convention Center to hear the Clintons conversation, moderated by James Carville, who ran Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign.

The talk, part of the Frank and Kula Kumpuris distinguished lecture series, drew supporters and former staff members from the Clinton administration.

After watching a highlight reel of the 1992 campaign, Carville asked the Clintons to reflect on campaigning in New Hampshire during the 1992 presidential push, as Bill Clinton’s poll numbers quickly dropped.

Winston Groat attended Hillary’s event in Atlanta this week and sent along this commentary, photos, and article. Thanks, Winston!

This week, Hillary appeared in Atlanta to speak about her book and our country’s future.  I attended the event along with 4,000 other like minded, energetic individuals.

I’ve never spent a more positive, uplifting and exhilarating evening!   The Fox Theatre roared with applause and energy throughout the night as she spoke.

The moderator used a question I submitted to close out the evening and say thank you for coming to Atlanta:
“May I give you a hug to thank you for your many years of service to our country and your continued leadership & inspiration”….

Hillary glowed as she waived goodbye to the crowd.

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said the Democratic wave in last week’s elections was a sign that the “fever is breaking and the tide is turning” after her stunning defeat by Republican Donald Trump.

Clinton said Monday that the Democratic victories in statewide elections in New Jersey and Virginia, along with down-ballot gains in Georgia and elsewhere, were a “resounding affirmation of America’s best values.”

“None of that would have happened if people got discouraged and decided to give up on politics last November,” she said during her stop in Atlanta as part of a 16-city nationwide book tour.

“You’ve got some important elections next year in Georgia,” she said. “Get involved in whatever way feels right for you. But don’t give up.”

The crowd of more than 4,000 welcomed Clinton with a roar of applause, and it cheered even louder when she said her days of being guarded about what she says in public “are over.”

On the eve of the anniversary weekend in Little Rock, Bill and Hillary Clinton made a joint appearance in Irving, Texas where Hillary also held a book signing.

When asked what they would tell Trump if he were seated next to them, Bill Clinton said Trump should, “stop seeking enemies and look for people to work with”

Former president Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared together onstage Friday for the first time since the 2016 presidential election to answer a host of political and personal questions.

The former First Couple was very casual during the hourlong discussion at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving.

They cracked a few jokes and were very candid on a number of topics — chief among them President Donald Trump, the 2016 election and the way forward for the Democratic Party.

When asked what they would tell Trump if he were seated next to them, Bill Clinton said Trump should, “stop seeking enemies and look for people to work with.”

“We’re the same age,” he added. “What do you want your legacy to be?”

Hillary Clinton said Trump, as president, should do more to unite the country. She also discussed some of her own missteps during the campaign.

“It was the first reality TV campaign. He was the first reality TV candidate and I was the candidate of reality. I was not as entertaining and I admit that,” she said.

I am not the only one who did not understand what Kirsten Gillibrand was saying.

The former Secretary of State, who is on tour for her new book “What Happened,” blasted Alabama GOP Senate Nominee Roy Moore and President Trump, lumping them together, and saying there is a big difference between those two and allegations surrounding their sexual behavior versus Democratic Senator Al Franken. She says Franken’s apology for his inappropriate behavior and his willingness for a Congressional ethics investigation into that “is the kind of accountability I’m talking about. I don’t hear that from Roy Moore or Donald TrumpLook at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither.” 
 
Secretary Clinton says President Trump “has disgraced the office.” When asked by host Rita Cosby if there is anything she admires about President Trump or what he’s accomplished while in office, she quickly answered, “No. The answer is absolutely no, Rita.. I didn’t think he’d be as bad as he turned out to be.
