Biggest Pet Peeve:
When people say Hillary Clinton is only where she’s at because she’s an ex-President’s wife.
Uhh…she graduated from Yale Law and became a successful lawyer way before Bill became President. And let’s not forget — Hillary helped Bill every step of the way. Without Hillary there is no Bill, and without Bill there is no Hillary. They are two halves of a whole. And Bill will be the first to admit that Hillary’s not only more competent than he is, but smarter too. Without her, he never would have become President.
They are a power couple. They both built the Clinton brand together. The Clinton brand is both Bill AND Hillary Rodham Clinton.
It’s disgusting that people would try to take away Hillary’s accomplishments as a lawyer, First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State. You simply do not become a New York Senator and Secretary of State just because you are an ex-President’s wife. PERIOD.
This picture says it all:
I haven’t spent the past 35 years in the trenches advocating for children, campaigning for universal health care, helping parents balance work and family, and fighting for women’s rights at home and around the world to see another Republican in the White House squander the promise of our country and the hopes of our people…Barack Obama began his career fighting for workers displaced by the global economy. He built his campaign on a fundamental belief that change in this country must start from the ground up, not the top down. He knows government must be about “We the people” not “We the favored few
Just think…it is extremely rare for someone to become President of the United States. If Hillary becomes President in 2016, that would mean two people, who were both capable of becoming President, found each other and married. Now THAT would be the definition of EPIC.
