Ready for Hillary

Written by: Kenzie Kesselring, Staff Writer

I’m ready for Hillary, but is the rest of America?

Following Sunday’s exciting but less than shocking announcement about Hillary Clinton’s run for the White House in 2016, many Americans are left looking for more information about Clinton.

Clinton graduated from Wellesley College in 1969 before going on to Yale Law School and graduating in 1973. Yale is where she met husband and former President, Bill Clinton. The two began working on their individual careers in politics from there and have had tremendous success.

Clinton has collected many accolades over her career including being placed in the top 100 of the most influential lawyers in 1988 and 1991 by the National Law Journal.

Clinton won a seat in the U.S Senate in 2000 and was elected for a second term in 2006. In 2009 Clinton was given the position of Secretary of State by President Barrack Obama and was so until her resignation in 2013.

Most people know Clinton as a former First Lady and Secretary of State, but these titles are not what Clinton wants overshadowing her campaign over the next year.

Clinton’s campaign video released via social media Sunday morning highlights her desire to empower middle and lower class American families.

“When families are strong, America is strong,” Clinton said in the video.

The video features families that are different from the stereotypical “all American families.” There is a same sex couple, an immigrant appearing to be starting a business, a young African American couple, and a single mother.

Hillary Clinton is the woman America needs. She is intelligent, has experience in politics and cares about human rights.

It is time for America to have a female president who cares about the social issues that are holding this country back. Clinton will carry on and improve what President Obama began doing to help middle and lower class Americans do better than their families ever thought they could.

Hillary is ready for the White House, and hopefully America is ready to put her there.

  1. Another liberal staff writer jumping on the Hillary bandwagon, despite overwhelming evidence she is unfit to lead.

    Sad.

  2. The only secret “promise’ that Hillary will keep is — to never mention the hand of the EMPIRE that feeds her.

    It’s not about the Money — but the EMPIRE behind the money!

    The really pivotal issue (of all ‘issues’) is whether Hillary (or
    any one of these neocon ‘R’ Vichy party political puppets, and
    neoliberal-con ‘D’ Vichy party political puppets) will do anything
    about the Empire which is the cancerous CAUSE of all these ‘identity
    issues’, ‘symptom problems’, and our entire “ailing social order” —-
    all of which is CAUSED by only one central, seminal, singular, but
    ‘disguised’ EMPIRE (the Cancer of all Maladies) in our sickened body
    politic.

    The answer, of course, is NO —- Hillary will not even
    whisper a word about the Disguised Global Capitalist Empire that she is
    auditioning in front of, and ‘for which she will front’ if (s)elected as
    the next faux/Emperor/Empress/president of this Disguised Global
    Capitalist Empire’s nominal world HQ in the belly of what most deluded
    and propagandized citizen/’subjects’ wishfully call ‘their country’.

    As Zygmunt Bauman hauntingly puts it, “In the case of an ailing social
    order, the absence of an adequate diagnosis…is a crucial, perhaps
    decisive, part of the disease.”13

    Today and HERE, the disease is Empire, and the cure is public ‘exposure’.

    Perhaps, the non-violent step beyond “Occupy” is not
    just “Occupy the Empire” as I had thought and worked toward for many years,
    but is mass civil ‘actions’ of public exposure with signs reading
    “Expose the Empire”.

    Liberty, democracy, justice, and equality
    Over
    Violent/Vichy
    Empire,

  3. You gotta be kidding. Hillary Clinton accomplished nothing as a US Senator and nothing as SecState. Her neglect before, during and cover-up after Benghazi should be enough to disqualify her for any future position in govt, let alone be president.

    What is it about this money-grubbing millionaire that makes you think she cares about the middle class? She flies around charging $300,000 to give a speech and collects millions from governments with lousy human rights records while she was secState.

    How many scandals going all the way back to her husband’s presidency are you willing to overlook?

    But what the Hell. She is a woman, and it’s time.
