Tonight is the End of the Beginning

11857-19308Emily Bazelon, one of the GabFest Trio who week to week drives me nutz with her own personal demands for political purity, seems to have grown a heart in the last several days. By golly, I think Emily finally gets it.

Emily says that tonight, Hillary begins the battle of her life. I couldn’t agree more. It’s dumbfounding that this race should even be close. But there are millions of people out there, especially men, who seem to hate Hillary more than they love their freedom from irresponsible megalomania. They seem eager to aggressively pounce on Hillary and stomp the s^&* out of her.

It’s going to get very, very ugly. boudicca3

But tonight, I hope she can put that aside and bask in adulation. She has accomplished so much. She has taken on a role that transcends Hillary Clinton. I believe it is more of a triumph than what Obama accomplished 8 years ago because we have never had a woman get this far. It’s exciting because there’s a mystery there. How will she govern? What will she do differently? What will her priorities be?

I have no doubt that she will work her heart out for us. We may not always agree with everything she does but we will never be able to say she didn’t try.

But first we have to get her there. And for once, I agree heartily with the Obamas. AS Michelle says, “When they go low, we go high”. And as Barack asks, we will carry her.

Tonight we celebrate, tomorrow we go win this thing.
