Last year, we all were so sure that this year she would be at Arlington laying wreaths. That was not to be. But despite the rain and chilly temps, Hillary marched in Chappaqua today with former President Bill Clinton and Governor Andrew Cuomo. The pipes and drums braved the weather in their rain gear. Our friend Oscar Flores marched too, as always!

Hillary was beside Governor Cuomo today as he signed the free tuition bill into law.

Hillary Clinton joined Gov. Cuomo in Queens Wednesday to promote his new tuition-free plan for New York’s public colleges.

“You move to New York you can get an affordable college education,” said Clinton, as Cuomo sign a bill at LaGuardia Community College to launch the program this fall at CUNY and SUNY.

“That would only be fair for young people who come here. I hope it will be the first of many states [that offer free tuition],” she said.

It will probably be the last time for awhile that Hillary will be able to march in her hometown parade.  Next year, she will be leading ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery. Chappaqua showed itself to be solidly behind her today.  The local grassroots group, Chappaqua Friends of Hillary, gathered to distribute stickers and cupcakes and to sign up volunteers.  Dawn Evans Greenberg organized the effort, and her team did a great job!   Up and down South Greeley, folks were sporting Hillary stickers as they cheered the parade: the vets, the scouts, the bands,  the pipers, the musketeers, the first responders, the soccer kids, Governor Cuomo, and  both Clintons.

The morning had been iffy.  It had rained – no poured.  But as folks began setting up, the drizzle stopped and the sun began trying to break through.

The Hillary tent was where the action was.  Everyone wanted to pose with the cutout of Hillary. One little girl about three-years-old called to the Hillary figure as she walked past.  “Hillary!”  There were homemade signs, lots of Hillary gear, and kids- lots of kids and lots of dogs!

Then came the parade!

The Revolutionary War contingent shot off their muskets every 1000 yards or so  – deafening.  The kids loved it!

As the parade ended everyone drifted to the ceremonies at the monument on the green.

Our fallen heroes deserve our profound gratitude for giving their lives to protect our freedom, today and every day. -H


The sun came out.  The roads dried up.  Hillary was happy to see us.  She said “Thank you, so much,” and put two thumbs up.




It seems there are questions about the Navy officer next to Hillary.  He is Oscar Flores, U.S. Navy Ret., who worked in the White House during the first Clinton administration and is employed by them now in his retirement. If you have read any of the many emails Hillary released, you will see his name on some of them. The Clinton family attended his retirement celebration some years ago. He is a trusted friend and member of the household and deserving of our thanks and respect for his service.  So, please  no more malarkey.  He has been there all along.  He is an officer and a gentleman. Please be respectful and thank him for his service!

Today, Hillary was there as Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York signed two bills into law: one raising the state’s minimum wage to $15 per hour and the other granting paid family leave.

It is unfortunate that this post popped up in a newsfeed prior to the event.  To forestall inaccurate and exploitative narratives regarding this event, a few things need to be clarified.

First, Hillary Clinton endorsed this effort long ago.  Her role in this movement has always been clear.

Hillary Clinton Supports Minimum Wage Hike

Clinton urges the creators of the “Fight for 15” movement to continue their work

Second, to cast this victory as one for which any candidate or official might “take credit” is crass exploitation.  This is a victory for American workers and families.  This was a grassroots effort, not the brainchild of any candidate for office. Bernie Sanders arrived in New York last week.  Hillary has been here since 1999 and New Yorkers know her as a former senator who worked hard for their interests.


Look for Hillary at 1:10:48

It is admirable that both candidates campaigning under the Democratic Party umbrella share support for initiatives that affect the common good, but no single candidate can claim ownership of an issue. It is wrongheaded and divisive. Solutions differ, but the problems they seek to address are the same.

Today was a victory for New Yorkers, and Hillary celebrated, rightfully, with the people she supported who worked toward this.  Any other narrative is self-serving nonsense, and Senator Sanders does need to take better control over how his surrogates and supporters represent his candidacy.  The ship is not tight.  If this is how he runs a campaign, how would he run the White House?

At the Schomburg, with Mayor DeBlasio,  Governor Cuomo and Eric Holder onstage, Charlie Rangel introduced Hillary saying, “We will be able to say we were there when it happened.”

Hillary: “It is not enough to break up the big banks.” She enumerated the markers of systemic racism – from mass incarceration to health issues like asthma rates and infant mortality and then unrolled a comprehensive agenda.

Among the items on this agenda: Jobs creation, support for Black entrepreneurs, especially women, equal pay for equal work, raising the minimum wage, providingAccess to home ownership and pre-school. In education: desegregating schools, and making college affordable.

Her job plan will combat recidivism due to long term unemployment when those who have paid their debt are released.

In schools, overreliance on suspensions and expulsions as well as police presence in schools will be addressed  to end the school to prison pipeline. Support will be provided for guidance counselors, school psychologists an social workers.

Among her comments:

“I actually tell you what I want to do. I think that’s my job.”

Coded racial language about President Obama comes from Republicans.  “As if he’s not the ‘real’ president.  He has the right to nominate under the Constitution and the Senate has the duty to vote on the nomination.”

Hillary will appoint justices who see the Constitution as a blueprint for progress.

“We can’t start building relationships a few weeks before a vote.”

“Hold me accountable.”

“None of this is a they problem.  It’s a we problem.  It’s an American problem.”

“We need to try to walk in one another’s shoes.”
