I Love Hillary Clinton

Now that it appears, she may not win the primary, let me say that I love Hillary Clinton. So many people attribute passion only to the Obama camp, but as a 43 year old, I don't display my passion in the same way a 20 year old supporter might, and I believe the press mistakes that for lack of passion.

I love her sense of compassion, I love her ability, I love that I've gotten to see her age and improve over the years and grow from her experiences. I love that she's managed to do all these things as a woman in America, which is still an uphill battle. I believe she "gets" most Americans. I believe she'd make a great president.

I will vote for Obama. What I feel I know well about Clinton, I do not know about him. I believe he's more of a wild card. I believe that things are so messed up right now that it requires someone with more experience, but some great leaders started the same way he did. I do believe his heart is in the right place and that he's highly intelligent. I hope he'll surprise me - in a good way!
