We lack some specifics at the moment, but CNN Politics is reporting the New Hampshire Democratic primary thus with 100% of precincts reporting.

Total Write-ins

SO!  While we do not know for whom those write-in votes were cast (we can suppose not for the baker’s dozen of challengers on the ballot),  and, oddly, we do not see a total of votes cast with a list of those challengers and their results, we do see that there was a pretty healthy write-in vote.

As a reminder, if she did garner a sizable portion of write-in votes,  HRC  never declared or said a word to imply that she was running, never set her pretty little foot on New Hampshire soil, and did not spend a red cent on this.  This was entirely a grassroots effort.  Imagine if she had assured voters that she was in this to win it.  At a time when this country is in dire need of a hero with a knowledge base and plans to counter the GOP  with its bad plans and the incumbent, who historically lacks plans going all the way back to the 2007 debates,  HRC is what she has always been since that day in 2007 when she declared, the change we need.

With the weekend debates over, New Hampshire voters (and those in other primary states) might be feeling a little hopeless.  The candidates are not inspiring, and the incumbent, for all the boost the media attempts to provide, has proven over almost four years that indeed  the Oval Office is not a training ground. The health care debacle, the dismal economy, the failure to reach across the aisle effectively, the incessant campaigning that never ceased after the last GE coupled with the lack of clarity explaining positions, the list goes on of reasons to regard the incumbent as ineffective.  But there remains a viable alternative.  Democrats, we can take our party back.  In open primaries, independents can hop aboard.

In addition to this action, and to fortify our position, we can join Americans Elect and become delegates there for HRC,  and we can sign the petitions in the sidebar on this page.  Click here to see a video of petition initiator Steve Rosinski  with Neil Cavuto last week.  

My last two cents:  I do not understand the Republican chant that Obama is a “socialist” president.  He has done nothing to protect, in any effective way, the social safety nets established by prior Democratic administrations.  If he remains in the Oval Office any longer, we will see these programs dismantled.  He is the “anti-socialist.”  Do not buy that cow.

In the old days, typing classes were drilled  to type this phrase:

“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party”

Well, we are the good men and women, and now is the time!  In primary states, starting Tuesday in New Hampshire,  we should all take this unique opportunity not to lie down and let the party walk all over us as they did in 2008 when the RBC disenfranchised legitimate registered voters and the convention shamefully put a candidate on the convention floor to stop the televised (and bogus) roll-call vote.  In primary states, we should write in our preferred candidate.  Iowa demonstrated how caucus states can caucus “uncommitted,”  an example other caucus states can follow.

So as the primary season gears up, let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work!  Sign the petitions in the sidebar if you feel so inclined.  Join Americans Elect and be a delegate for HRC.   There is plenty to do!  Share with your friends.

Let’s get Hillary Rodham Clinton on the ballot!

December is always heavily front-loaded, and 2011 was hardly an exception with Mme. Secretary on an historical visit to Burma where she met extensively with Nobel laureate and opposition leader Dai Aung Sang Suu Kyi.  Cameras popped, literally, for days and Mme. Secretary granted a flurry of media interviews.

Looking scrumptious, she touched down in DC for a meager 36 hours to host her traditional Kennedy Center Honors Gala Dinner, and was off again.  This time for Europe – a Rainbow Tour  beginning in Bonn for an Afghanistan Conference.  After Bonn, it was Vilnius,  Lithuania for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) conference followed immediately by a visit to Geneva, Switzerland,  There she met with the Syrian National Council, delivered a Human Rights Day speech that electrified as well as an address at the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention.  In  Brussels she spoke at the NATO Conference, and then moved on to The Hague where she attended a Conference on Internet Freedom.

She returned to DC to a series of bilaterals and holiday events, participated in a PBS event with Jim Lehrer, signed an MOU with President Jahjaga of Kosovo, participated in the Women in Public Service event co-sponsored by DOS and the Seven Sisters colleges.  In New York she delivered a major address at the International Crisis Group’s “In Pursuit of Peace” Award Dinner.  In DC  she delivered an address on landmines and weaponry,  “To Walk the Earth Safely.”

The earth lost a dictator and a hero when North Korea’s Kim Jong-Il and former Czech president Vaclav Havel died.   Mme. Secretary led the US delegation, including former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Albright to Havel’s funeral in Prague.

As the year drew to a close, the calls for Secretary Clinton to run for POTUS in 2012 escalated into a write-in campaign for primary states, NH first, complete with robocalls.  As of two nights ago, HRC was on Americans Elect.

As my friend Rumana told both President and Secretary Clinton, we are very serious about this and will continue to pursue this effort into the new year.  We hope our encouragement touches Mme. Secretary.

Speeches: Remarks at the Afghanistan Conference, Remarks at Breakfast with Afghan Civil Society RepresentativesAfghan Women’s Event, Afghanistan Conference First Working Session, Belarus Civil Society Roundtable, Civil Society Meet and Greet, OSCE First Plenary Session, Human Rights Day speech,  Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention, Conference on Internet Freedom, Women in Public Service, ICG Dinner: “In Pursuit of Peace,” To Walk the Earth Safely.

Travel: Burma, Germany, Lithuania, Switzerland, Belgium,  the Netherlands, the Czech Republic.

Our best wishes, Mme. Secretary, for a Happy, Healthy, Safe, and Successful 2012.  We implore you.  Run, Hillary, run!

Our friend Brian Augustine found that HRC has been added to Americans Elect .  I signed up and am tracking her.  If you have a little trouble with step 2, be persistent.  I had to do it three or four times before I finally got to step 3.

Let’s all register and start tracking her!  Let’s show our Hillary some love!

Note:  I am new to this and not completely sure how it works, so comments from people with helpful information are welcome!

Reported robocalls, which I have tried (and failed) to post here are connected to this petition site.  (If I can figure out how to post the MP3 here above the fold, I shall.  If I cannot, maybe Jen can figure out how to share it in the thread since she put it on Facebook.)

Sign the petition! 


I support Hillary Rodham Clinton to be our next President.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton should be the Democratic Party’s 2012 Presidential nominee. 
Run Hillary Run!

Well finally Caddell and Schoen have published the long-awaited part two to their November 21 WSJ op-ed.  We applaud loudly!  Without further ado, here you go!

New Hampshire voters should draft Hillary


We argued in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed piece that President Barack Obama should stand down and let Secretary of State Hillary Clinton run as the Democratic presidential nominee in 2012.

We are now calling on Democratic voters nationally — particularly in New Hampshire — to organize a write-in campaign for Clinton. This is something that New Hampshire voters have a long history of doing.

We advocate this Draft Hillary movement not because of the desire to make political mischief — but to put the country on the right course.
