This is not a political post, it is not an endorsement, and it is not an invitation for the discussion of policy.
It is an acknowledgement of an achievement and a note of gratitude for making it easier for the woman who come after you to dream big, work hard, and define their role in the world for themselves.
[I was forced to waste my time editing and commenting on the post below, including the headline. metamars, you have already been warned to not bring right-wing tropes in your critiques of Clinton. This is your last warning.] Read more about Presumptive Nominee Clinton is a Warhawk; and why Sanders needs to keep fighting.
That can be the only reason she deviously rigged the meaningless Washington state primary so that Clinton could win, with exactly zero impact on the delegate math*.
At least Clinton isn't whimpering about "the unfairness of it all" like Sanders does. Though he got 46% of the vote to her 54% of the vote, he gets 74 delegates to her 25. No matter, he isn't going to be the Democratic party nominee. Not going to happen. Read more about Why Does Debbie Wasserman Schultz Hate Democracy?
April 16, 2015 The Onion: Hillary Clinton To Nation: ‘Do Not Fuck This Up For Me’
Once again not only does The Onion get it right, they are pure prophecy. Read more about Hillary Clinton's campaign message in one phrase

Allow me to briefly recapitulate. The London Interbank Offer Rate, or Libor as it's commonly called, is supposed to be the interest rate international banks charge their most credit worthy customers, other banks.

Hillary Clinton’s new proposal to expand coverage for middle-aged adults provides a glimpse at how she would make Obamacare her own.
There is still time to nominate Bernie. The US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, California, NJ, Montana, NM, SD, ND, and Washington DC have yet to hold their primaries. Bernie would need a commanding lead in them to catch Hillary, but the possibility is there. Bernie knows what his tracking polls look like, more importantly, he knows what his phone bank results look like. The Bernie phone bank is tied directly into his database, so he knows how many calls are being made, where those calls are going, and what the results look like, and his team knows this in real time.

Republicans controlling the House are proposing $23 billion worth of food stamp cuts over the coming decade.
