I am deeply honored to be telling the vision that has since been on my mind for a while in the most possible way I have ever imagined. I have wracked my mind how best I would tell it; it was not until I was admiringly looking at Mrs. Clinton’s photos recently and I got the picture (above) that would best tell what I envision in the Presidency of the first female President of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton. As I have noted time and again, if there is anything that I admire about President Obama and Mrs. Clinton among the very many things, it’s their authentic selves—especially in the realm of political maturity, for purposes of this article.
As I noted earlier in the road to President Hillary Clinton, her resilience is certainly a thing anyone in the world would admire, she is indeed is a fighter—“fighting for us, we are stronger together”, do those words ring a bell? By now they should be the words every sane American has subscribed to their hearts than the fictional ‘make America Great Again’, when did she become weak, after President Obama’s achievements? That, I do not believe even for a second, because; the writing is on the wall. The Obama administration may not have solved everything but they will go down in history as one of the most successful administrations of the United States.
On the night of the 2008 Democratic convention, when Mrs. Clinton held an olive branch to Obama saying, ‘I will do everything I can to get Barack elected’, that she did; she went on to say these beautiful words from the phenomenal Harriet Tubman that I find very relevant (especially with the never ending republican yammering and bickering): “If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the wood, keep going. If there is shouting after you, keep going. Do not ever stop, keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going”. As it is clearly spelt to all of us, that’s what has brought her thus far, to the milestone for women; as she pronounced eloquently on the night she became the presumptive nominee for the democratic party.
By far Hillary Clinton is the first woman to ever make it as nominee of a party for the biggest office, president of the United States. As was Sen. Barack Obama in 2008; as first Afro-American to make it through, I find the beauty of this the best story that’s ever going to be written in American politics. When it is written, I will pride myself in having been part of the Hillary train, I have waited for a long time; I am glad my dream is coming to reality: President Hillary Clinton. She does not need to convince me and no one can un-convince me that she isn’t phenomenal;atleast I have followed her through a big time of my life—I have seen her strength of character through and through, I am certain America and the world in general needs the leader in her especially now.
One of my best writers, Nicolle Wallace, recently wrote an article you can read ten times consecutively titled, ‘the GOP waits, and waits; for Donald Trumpto grow up’ in which she succinctly puts it: “Mr. Trump is waiting for party leaders to stop reprimanding him for his lean (that is skeletal) campaign operation, his politically incorrect utterances and his inconsistent operations”. Again, those are just raw facts. If in a nightmare, America votes ‘the Donald’ to presidency, which I strongly believe will not happen, because I have faith in American people; you get what you deserve.Beacuse,whatever hole he crawled from, he has been preying on the republicans with his fear mongering antics and bigotry—something republicans subscribe too anyways.More still, if by the same nightmare we don’t launch Mrs. Clinton into the white house, it will be definitive confirmation that gender chauvinism still has its place in the hearts of American men. If you are reading this, when your car is headed down a cliff; the last thing you need is a quiet flag. Let’s stand tall against the world menace, Donald Trump, and stand with her all the way. God bless America and the whole world.
