Thoughts on Bill Clinton's speech at the DNC
August 28, 2008 7:09pm CST
I hadn't seen Bill Clinton's speech to the Democratic National Convention until tonight. I DVRed it, but my assistant told me that she felt from the segment she had seen (which was not the whole thing) that she felt was being mean to Hillary because he said that no one was better than Barack for the job. As a political person myself, to some degree, I had to disagree with her. I don't think he was being mean to Hillary. I work on the Community Choice Act as a lot of you know and whatever anyone has to say about me to get that bill past a day, an hour, or a moment sooner it would be okay with me. Basically, I'm just a get it done kind of girl. If you have to hurt my feelings, so be it. I've dedicated myself to this work for more than one third of my life. It's the most serious thing I've ever done. In my view, my feelings are irrelevant and completely so in terms of getting this bill past. I think Hillary, although Bill's remarks at times might have seemed harsh, told me what to say. She must have told him in the face of the future of the nation that she didn't matter. If that's the case, I say you go girl! I plan to vote for you in 2016 or 2012 if Barack doesn't make it. What do you think about this discussion?
