The beautiful Clinton family:Photo off the web
This is a story I want to write and tell in mid-November on the road of the Clintons to the white house, for the second time, a historic moment in the politics of the United states: a reward for hard work, which as embedded in what being truly American means; hard work rewards handsomely in the land of opportunity, the United States of America. If you have been following closely, I have said it many times and I will say it again, Mrs. Clinton’s presidency is a historical milestone—it is one I pray to see and I am with high hopes that the intuition I have at the back of my mind is correct, she will make history even with the landslide win against the Donald.

In an article I came across on the internet recently, Snoop Dogg puts it in the best way ever: “You know I like to be politically correct, but sometimes I’m politically incorrect; but I will say that I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need perspective other than the male’s train of thought. And just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that. So I’ll be voting for Mrs. Clinton

The raw facts are that yes, Mrs. Clinton is by far the most qualified candidate to ever run for the biggest office of the United States. Just before President Obama joined Hillary Clinton on the trail in North Carolina, Josh Earnest; the White House Press secretary remarked: “the focus of President Obama’s remarks in Charlotte will be on Secretary Clinton and in his view that she has the character, the toughness, skills and experience to succeed him as president of the United States”. And reminding us of what Donald Trump stands for, as President Obama said earlier in Canada: “someone who has never shown any regard for workers, has never thought on behalf of social justice issues

While in Charlotte, President Obama did endorse Donald Trump for the job he is fit for and the phenomenal Hillary Clinton for the job she is going to do so well. President Obama, while not mentioning names said that being president is not some job for TV reality show but a job for president of the united states (he has emphasized this over time and you need to pay attention).Honestly, the unfiltered behavior Donald Trump has displayed make him a perfect fit except for one; a competitor at comedy central that Kevin Hart and Chris Rock may have found. The good news is that he may not have the nerve to pick himself up after the insurmountable defeat on his way in November.

An endorsement that speaks for itself, President Obama’s rock-solid endorsement.

To be endorsed by a President whose approval rates are above 50 percent, yet that man has met pitch 8 obstructionism(from republicans) from day one as I earlier wrote is one of the greatest assets any candidate running to be successor would pride in, Hillary Clinton is a very blessed woman. While in Charlotte, President Obama said these words very eloquently (as we all do his unmatched oratory abilities): 

I came down to Charlotte today because I believe in Hillary, and I am asking you to have her back in November. This election isn’t really a choice between left and right or the Democratic or Republican. This is a choice between whether we are going to cling to some imaginary past or move into the future. This is about whether we have America that works for everybody, or just those at the top. Hillary has been fighting for years—fighting for working families and the kids, and fighting to make sure everybody in this country has a fair shot (and she has got the scars to prove it).She believes that America’s future is ours to shape, and she’s got what it takes to lead us forward .She understands that we make our own destiny, and that we are always the strongest together. I couldn’t agree more. And that’s why I am with her”.

In the recent article on the blog, MY AMERICAN JOURNEY, where I envision a Hillary Clinton presidency as the last ounce of hope—because of the nightmarish reality that tags along a Donald Trump presidency, I was crystal clear; as so many have emphatically said and as Hillary Clintons message of a united path goes, America is stronger as one (STRONGER TOGETHER), thanks to you President Obama for that wonderful emphasis.

If there is something that I have failed to understand, it is whether the people that deny Hillary Clinton’s achievements as having been on the fight are just being willfully ignorant or just fantastically stupid; I have reached a conclusion as my liberating experience: “they are completely, all the above, of the afore-mentioned”. Because: Mrs. Clinton has been in the trenches fighting for women, children and justice for all. Back in 1995(I was 6 years old then), Donald Trump and most of his followers must have been 15times or older, Hillary Clinton while delivering remarks to UN 4th World conference on Women Plenary session; on September 5th, in Beijing China didn’t mince words saying, I will paraphrase: “let me clear. Freedom means the right to assemble, organize and debate openly. It means respecting the views of those who may disagree with the views of their governments, it means not taking citizens away from their loved ones and jailing them, mistreating them or denying their freedom or dignity because of the expression of ideas and opinions”. I have had the luxury of reading the History books, Bill and Hillary Clinton memoirs, the best 1000 greatest speeches of all time(from American Rhetoric) and a zillion newspaper and blog articles—I can profoundly say that she has earned it, being the Democratic nominee and with enormous hope, the 45th President of the united states.

As an air of finality, I will end with the words from Vice President, go out there and do the right thing at the voting booth and vote the right person to the job—the 45th President, former first lady of a very successful President Bill Clinton; former successful New York senator; former successful secretary of state and the historic first female POTUS:put it more accurately,the best pair of hands America will ever be placed into.
