Hillary is Change!

United States
February 28, 2008 9:28am CST
I had the pleasure of attending a rally with Bill Clinton last evening and I feel stronger than ever that Hillary truly is the "change agent" America needs. When I first started to follow the primaries, I would hear the word change thrown around and think well Hillary is change but time after time Obama was getting the credit for being a change maker. I listened to the words that Bill spoke. He closed his speech with a bit of humor explaining that as the President of the United States he never waits in traffic, his airplane is so fancy they make movies about it, he doesnt wait in lines and its all fine and dandy but even though there are perks, the one thing that remained constant in his presidency is that he didnt forget the people who gave him the honor of serving in most important public jobs in America. He then ended with: Hillary will not forget you. I believe this. When I pondered over the words he spoke detailing Hillary's accomplishments as a "change agent" and his administrations accomplishments for a better America, I remembered what life was like before Bush policy and wow what a great time it was. Think about your life between the years of 1992-2000 and then compare it to the years 2000-2008. A Clinton got us out of the mess that a Bush put us in and it is going to take another Clinton to fix the mess that the other Bush has created. Hillary can fix it. I will vote on Tuesday, March 4 in my primary and in my caucus. Hillary has my vote.

I would love to have attended that discussion. I have been supporting Hillary since day one. I have been keeping track of her since she left the White House and I am just hoping she will get back into it again. I voted for her on our Super Tuesday so I am keeping my fingers crossed. According to what I have heard today she has made a good turn about.

"Think about your life between the years of 1992-2000 and then compare it to the years 2000-2008." Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for saying what I've been saying for ages now! People who have never paid much attention to politics and aren't tied in any way to either party or any particular candidate know what their own lives were like then and what they're like now and there's nothing the Bush defenders can say to change their minds. Hillary was just in Scranton, Pa. the other day and I was quite impressed by her speech and by her interaction with the huge crowd of people who showed up to see her. I want to say here that I'm sort of an odd-ball, so it would seem in that I like both Hillary and Obama and I'm sad that there's been so much negativity in the campaign. The main thing I want and feel we NEED so badly is to have a Democrat in the White House come Jan. 20, 2009. I hope so much the campaign won't get so dirty before and during the convention that many of the new voters are turned off and we end up with John McCain being elected which is the same as a third Bush term. I really lik what yo've written here and that's what I like to see from anyone who supports either candidate - the positive things that will come about instead of the negative and mudslinging. You're right, Hillary is change and I sure wish people would actually READ her health care plan before calling it Socialized medicine. Annie

Life was good back then. We do need a democrat in office. America has been bruised enough and it is time for some healing. I wish people would read all of her plans before making judgement. It annoys me when people think they are in the know and dont really have a clue and have done no research.

Thanks so much, Hon, for the BR. I just wanted to say again how much I wish people would actually read and research her health care plan. It's not about giving the government control over our health care or forcing people to buy insurance at today's prices whether they can afford it or not. Can't people see that if we continue the way we're going, with those of us who can pay for out health care (either privately or through insurance) paying for those who wait until they need to go to the ER then can't pay things are going to continually get worse instead of better and costs for those who can pay will continue to go through the ceiling and more uninsured and under-insured people will continue to get long term and much more expensive to treat illnesses or DIE because they don't get the early diagnosis and treatment they need. OK, every time the subject of health care comes up I go off on a rant...SO SORRY! Annie

You are believing what a career politican says during election time? I think the atraction to Obama is that he is not a life-long politican; he is new to Washington so it gives the people hope of change. I won't take a rope from the Clintons on the other end if I was drowning. There would be a hidden cost. Check out dickmorris.com. Hear it from someone who was with them in Arkansas. BTW, I am a republican and am not at all happy with who is probably going to get our nomination bacause it will be politics as usual. I am almost willing to chance Obama over that.

Yep, I will take life long politician versus false promise any day. I prefer substance over "hope". We can "hope" for a better America all day long but reality is we won't get a better America unless we have a President who actually has the experience with the political system to make things happen. I am tired of hoping for things to get better. I hope that I can get a few extra miles out of my car before I have to fill up because I ache at the fact that my little 4 cylinder car requires nearly 50 bucks to fill up. I hope that I can run my air conditioner a little longer to keep my home comfortable in this Texas heat and not have to worry about the 300 dollar electric bill that will follow. I hope for many things but the reality is that unless someone actually does something about the problems our economy has, then we can hope all we want and still be broke at the end of the day. I make a decent income yet cant afford the things that I once could because my bills have doubled and my wage hasnt. I pay more for utilities and necessities than I ever have. how is Obama going to fix that? My healthcare premiums have just gone up. I have friends that dont have healthcare and make just above minimum wage. Obama wants to fix the healthcare crisis by mandating parents to have health insurance for their families. how will parents who make minimum wage be able to afford even the least expensive amount of insurance? He says it will be affordable so they will buy it?...no they wont because they only make minimum wage and even pennies on the dollar make a difference. I havent heard a single thing about what Obama will do to fix our economic crisis. I guess if he is elected i will "hope" that his advisors give him some good direction.

I just saw this discussion and wanted to add my two cents....I hope I get to see both Hill and Bill here in Pennsylvania in the near future. No matter, on April 22nd, I'm voting for her in the Pennsylvania Primary. Just hope we both can vote for her again come November.
