Last May, Hillary Clinton sat down with Christiane Amanpour at the Women for Women International Luncheon and told her that but for James Comey’s letter of October 28, 2016, she probably would have won the election, a theory she fleshes out in her memoir What Happened.

Hillary supporters had a new date to add to the list of days that we will never forget as October 28 joined May 31, 2008 – the day the Democratic Party Rules and Bylaws Committee altered the delegate count in the wake of the primaries that year.

So here we are a year later. CNN chose to commemorate the day with a chronological look at social media one year ago today for the record of how attitudes changed over the course of the day.

Reliving the day Hillary Clinton says cost her the election, one year later

Sigh.

You’ve got to love Hillary!

Earlier in the week, Hillary stopped by for a chat with Fareed Zakaria. The interview aired today on Fareed’s GPS.

ICYMI Here is Hillary’s extensive interview with Anderson Cooper from Wednesday night. It could be my imagination, but it seemed to me that Hillary is more relaxed than ever. That alternate nostril breathing must really work!

She clearly deliberated long and hard about this, and we respect her dedication to her Republican principles.  But Christine Todd Whitman could no longer simply be #NeverTrump.  She has joined the band of brave Republicans endorsing Hillary Clinton and we could not be happier to have her in our camp.  Welcome, Christie!

Ex-GOP gov Whitman says she’s backing Clinton

We have been waiting for this for awhile, but we knew that sooner or later Christie would team up for the best choice in this election.

The Christie Bombshell … No! Not THAT Christie!

Thank you, Governor Whitman!  Nice to have you aboard.

Bonus!  The conservative Enid News has also thrown its chops behind Hillary!  The reasonable choice!

EDITORIAL: Hillary Clinton is our choice for commander in chief

ENE Editorial Board

To paraphrase Albert Einstein, what is right is not always popular.

For our newspaper — a historically conservative voice in a conservative, Republican region of arguably the reddest state in the union — endorsing a Democrat for president is truly an exception.

But this is not a routine campaign. In fact, Nov. 8 will see the most crucial presidential election race in contemporary American history.

Realistically, we have only two candidates for president, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, though other names will appear on the ballot. As has been demonstrated time and again in recent months, Trump does not have the skills, experience or temperament to hold office. For voters, Clinton is the only reasonable choice.

For one thing, Joe Johns, her health is not a “major campaign issue,” although we will agree that she tends to plow forth no matter what, as you said.  The diagnosis is cause, perhaps,  for tweaking the schedule, but it is not a “major issue.”  Hillary will follow doctor’s orders, and the campaign will roll on.

Hillary, amidst a packed day on Friday, sat down with CNN’s Chris Cuomo for an interview that played throughout the day of 9/11 on CNN.  Great! It was a touching and sincere interview. She was impressive.

Now that Hillary’s diagnosis of pneumonia has been made public, these are the images CNN chooses to accompany the “story” of her interview and her appearance at the 9/11 ceremonies at the World Trade Center yesterday.

So I need to ask WTH????  (Fifth-graders – the H stands for “heck.” Grandma S4H says that is an OK word.)  Why not these pictures before she had a fainting incident yesterday and why now?

She was a Senator from New York serving her constituents when these photos were taken.  OH! And where is Donald Trump in the September 12, 2001 pics?  Nowhere!

But now that this diagnosis is out there all over the interwebs, let’s make these photos available so we can make it look like Hillary got sick long ago while serving as a Senator.  There is implication in the choice to use these photos now.

Shame on you, John Berman and Christine Romans. Juxtaposing these pictures with the pneumonia story creates a false narrative.

As an educator, I am well aware of Gardner’s multiple intelligences.  It is a theory, but I will concede that for some, perhaps for many, a visual image creates more impact than the spoken or written word.

That being the case, why would a news organization pair photos of a candidate looking distressed and wearing a mask with a story about her having been found to be battling a respiratory infection?

Oh wait!  I know!  I get it!  You want to attach a deeper meaning!

Somehow, going to Ground Zero (on more than one occasion) is now connected, visually, to the diagnosis which appeared, coincidentally, on 9/11.

Serving her constituents made her too sick to serve.  I get it.  So please stop!

She developed a case of pneumonia that is being treated.  She has a minor incident of feeling faint.  It can happen to the strongest among us.

Hillary went many hours more than General Petraeus when she testified last year before the Benghazi committee without fainting.

Stop trying to make Hillary Clinton look sicker and weaker than she is. Media malpractice.  Very disappointing. While we’re at it, lose the snide, John Berman. It comes off like a know-it-all ninth-grader at a debate contest.  Unbecoming.

Hillary has seasonal allergies.  See this from last year when there were 17 Republicans and she blamed her cough on Republican histamines. Many have allergies. Nothing exclusionary about that.

I agree with this >>>>.  Recently a friend asked if I could believe that she gets coughing fits in church. Well, yes. I can. When did a cough ever keep me out of church, school, eventually out of work?  Never!  That is how you keep your grades and your job. You go in sick.  A cough got me my only A- in a doctoral program. The halls at Columbia might as well have been the Alps for the echoes generated. It was not the actual cough that did it.  It was the fatigue.  My inability to clear that highest bar that particular “bronchitis semester.”  My research was sub-par  –  my par.   I did work full-time and teach part-time throughout.  Never missed a day.  Could not afford to.  I kept my jobs.  Coughs happen. So do bronchitis and pneumonia.

Hillary did, wisely, cancel a trip west.  We can help her make up for the fundraisers by kicking in a few extra contributions.  Let’s do this!

Get well, Hillary!  We love you and need you.  We have the wheel for now!

Hillary Clinton focused her comments squarely on gun regulations when she  spoke by phone to Chris Cuomo this morning.  She called for statesmanship not partisanship in the wake of the terrorist attack in Orlando.

Cuomo pressed her on Trump’s charge that she refuses radical Islamist as a term. She said that she has not rejected the term but will not demonize a religion citing risk in alienating American Muslim community.

“We cannot demonize, demagogue, and declare war on an entire religion…Hate is not the answer to hate.” —Hillary

Hillary turned the conversation to the bigger issue of gun regulations.  Florida does not regulate assault weapons or high-capacity magazines.  Hillary has called for common sense gun reform many times in the course of her campaign.  She called for reinstatement of the  assault weapons ban.

Asked about the right to bear arms, she responded that there are common sense steps that can be taken and pointed to 23 shootings this year by toddlers.

Cuomo asked her to respond to Trump’s messages.  She called his rhetoric dangerous. We have to prevent radicalization. But we also have to be aware that people who are not radicalized also use guns to hurt people. She wants to protect people from ISIS but also from others who inflict injury and death outside of jihadist motivations.

Donald Trump called in later and repeatedly said “we are letting in too many Syrian refugees.”  The shooter was of Afghan descent and, like Trump, was born in New York. He said, ” We are taking in too many people like this guy.”

The day after claiming the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary was all over the TV networks tonight. She appeared with Anderson Cooper on CNN discussing such topics as party unity, Bill Clinton’s possible role in her administration, and her pick for Veep.

In the post mortem, Jeffrey Toobin said what someone should have long ago: that there is a word for what happened to Bernie Sanders – he lost and needs to get over it.  Toobin said the party has coddled Sanders long enough, and it is time for him to get in line.  He said Hillary cannot tell Bernie this, but President Obama can and, he supposes, probably will at their meeting tomorrow. He backed up his statement by arguing that Hillary got the most votes, the most delegates, and the most states.  Case closed as far as he is concerned.

Hillary also spent some time last night before her big speech last night with ABC’s David Muir. The segment aired on World News Tonight.

The video and transcript are here >>>>

Before Hillary left the west coast, she also sat down with Mario Lopez, and that segment aired tonight as well.  It was very short and focused on the history of the moment.

Finally, Lester Holt interviewed Hillary for the Nightly News.  She rejected the notion that Bernie Sanders brought any new ideas to the table but praised the passion he inspired.  Lawrence O’Donnell replayed this at 10 EDT on MSNBC.

Lawrence O’Donnell  ended his hour recalling that other California primary. The 1968 one. I did not cry last night when Hillary claimed the nomination. I knew she was going to do it, and thank God. She is healthy and fine. But 1968….. I woke up early in the morning and the TV was on. I asked my husband – “Why are they talking about JFK?” He said, “They are talking about his brother.”

The cortege went through NJ by train on the way to D.C. People lined the tracks the whole way. It still hurts after all these years. Eight years ago, after suspending her campaign, Hillary Clinton went to the fields of California and began campaigning for the Obama/Biden ticket. She had, long before that, filled the Bobby space in my heart along with his Senate seat. Where she went and what she did after accepting defeat was so much like Bobby as were her visions and plans as laid out in her campaign that year. There is a grace in what she did.  There was a grace in Bobby.

Chip in something if you can and continue to help make history!
