AFL-CIO endorses Hillary Clinton


Hillary had a wonderful week last week and all the joy was punctuated by the massacre in Orlando.  Hillary has vowed to take on the NRA and the Senate will vote on proposals to close loopholes in the gun laws. It will be a while before people feel joyful again, but we can be thankful to Hillary for her firm stance, to the senators who joined the filibuster, and to the very strong, influential people and organizations who endorse Hillary.

Obama, Clinton top most-admired lists for 2011

By Cathy Lynn Grossman, USA TODAY

Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton are the nation’s most admired man and woman — again — in the annual USA TODAY/Gallup Poll.

Each leads their category with 17% of votes in top 10 lists that favor the most familiar names in global politics, religion, entertainment and culture.


Obama supplanted George W. Bush at No. 1 in 2008 but Bush continues in the No. 2 spot, according to the poll of 1,019 U.S. adults conducted Dec. 15-18.

Former president Bill Clinton hovers in third this year, just above the most frequently named person in the poll’s history — the Rev. Billy Graham. The 93-year-old evangelist has been on the list since Gallup first asked the question in 1946 and has made the top 10 55 times.

Perennial runner-up Oprah Winfrey is No. 2 for women for the 10th time. It’s her 24th year in the top 10.

First lady Michelle Obama garnered third place, dropping former Alaska governor Sarah Palin to fourth this year.

Text from Harpo, Inc. video of Secretary Clinton for Oprah.com.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Hello to everyone at Oprah.com. I am so excited that Oprah and all of those who watch her and love her are going to be firmly behind the idea that our country can do more to help those women and girls who hold up half the sky. There are so many ways that you can be involved. There are resources right here at Oprah.com that can give you the tools you need to help a child go to school, to help a young woman get the healthcare she needs.

I am inspired every day by the women I meet around the world who are part of a change that must happen, so that girls and women have the rights and the voice that they deserve to have. So thank you.
