Former Canadian PM Brian Mulroney, Former Secretary of State James Baker, Tom Brokaw, Patti Davis, and Ron Reagan gave stirring and humorous eulogies.  Ron, endearingly,  had a little bit of trouble controlling his emotion near the end of his tribute.

The Ave Maria, Amazing Grace, and the Battle Hymn of the Republic were sung.

The sky opened up and it poured. That is always a good sign and a blessing at a funeral.

You do,  eventually,  become your mother.  You know that.  So, like me, you probably are finding yourself  saying, “Lord,  give me patience!”   That is also a prayer.  We call them aspirations, little prayers.

If you were to any extent conscious on August 26, 2008, if you saw the bogus roll call vote on that day of celebration of women’s suffrage, you know why,  once again,  my mom’s words escape my lips.

I know I did not hallucinate that day in August 2008.  I know I saw this person preside jubilantly at the nomination of a half-term Senator against HER!  Against the woman we have always known was the one.

So she has finally come to Hillary?  Lord give me patience!  (Or am I supposed to say “Amen?”  or “Hallelujah?”  I am confused.)

Today would have been my mom’s 97th birthday.

Pelosi says she ‘prays’ Hillary Clinton will run for president

By Gavin Lesnick

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she “prays” Hillary Rodham Clinton will run for president.

Pelosi, D-Calif., speaking in Little Rock about current affairs in American politics, said she had no inside information about whether Clinton will run. But, she said, she considers Clinton the most qualified potential nominee.

“I pray that Hillary Clinton decides to run for president of the United States,” Pelosi said, drawing loud applause from the crowd of several hundred at the Robinson Center. “… Nobody has been first lady and senator and now secretary of state. Putting everything aside that she is a woman, she’d be the best qualified person that we’ve seen [in recent years].”

Most of these were not taken during the service which was not photographed, apparently. That is Maya Angelou in the wheelchair beside the casket.  The white-haired guy kissing Hillary is her HUGE FAN Orrin Hatch who tried single-handedly to nominate her to SCOTUS.

One hundred forty-three of us are members of Dr. Lynette Long’s Facebook group: Put A Woman In Statuary Hall. Today, in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the National Women’s History Project, Nancy Pelosi did just that. No, she did not dedicate a statue, but she honored, in Statuary Hall, a flesh and blood,  living and breathing hero for women and girls all over the world, Secretary of State Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton. There is an earlier post here (scroll down) with a video and text Of Secretary Clinton’s remarks at this event, but I could not resist posting a pictorial review. (I also could not resist including my pal, Charlie Rangel, who was not near Hillary at the time, but just to say, “Hi, Charlie!” I have met him, and he is a good guy. He also is the one who suggested Hillary move to New York and run for the Senate. I am forever grateful for that.) And now, heeerrrrrre’s Hillary enjoying yet another wonderful honor and looking typically adorable doing so.
