Last nights results may prove to be the water shed moment in the Democratic race for the White House. My hope is that both of the candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama can see the forest from the trees and accept their roles in moving our Democracy forward. For the last 2 Months it has been my belief and impression that the race was for who has to take the top spot and who will be the VP. It may have been an issue of an impending poor mental health, the length and depth of this whole process has certainly taken it’s toll I am just not sure anymore. Yet I do know that as a result of this long hard race and a united ticket can, only bridge the divisions created between your core supporters, and I am calling on you both to make it happen, Obama/Clinton 08.
I supported Hillary as my first choice for some time and I do believe she represents the ability to move an agenda forward that will give hope to the working middle class of which I am one. Still the energy and honesty from Barack over the last 3 months has been nothing short of moving and exciting. I do believe now that he represents the best hope to save our society and democracy but he will not be able to do it alone. I think the next test he needs to pass will be to convince Hillary to join him as VP, her experience in Washington and in the Senate could prove the key to accomplishing the agenda that needs to pass and her ability to work across aisles could prove to be critical to a successful administration. At the same time 8 years from now she will be 69 years old and stand as the likely successor to an administration she has played a key role in. If they can reverse the effects of the 8 years of King Bush I and Queen Cheney and set a new course for the United States that is both safe and prosperous she will have her turn as the leader of the free world. No one ever said this was going to be an easy job and 16 years of struggling will be a daunting task yet I am sure she is capable of accomplishing just that.
This task is by no means assured but as a team they certainly would posses the best talent we have to offer as a party and their combined abilities and in my opinion the best chance for success.
Senator Clinton you have run a wonderful race you know you have a broad base of support here in this country and you have cracked that glass ceiling in a big way now it is time to show patience and the hard work you have talked about for 2 years and move forward for the sake of your supporters and our county show me the courage you have demonstrated thus far and accomplish the goals we so desperately need to succeed at.
I look forward to winning in November and greater opportunity for all of us in the future.
As Usual just my opinions
