The Hillary Haven

President HIllary
p>

Following Obama, and supporting him in 2008, I sort of disliked Hillary for her campaigning. She seemed a bit mean at times, and almost racist. But I took a second look at her when she lost, and realized she was not like that at all, but compassionate and passionate about people and the world. I realized that she was simply following the advice of her former husband’s advisers. They were afraid that unless she came across a certain way, she would not be tough enough to be considered Presidential. No woman had ever been truly viable for a Presidential nomination before, and so she followed what was the accepted path.

But when she lost,she and Obama became true partners and friends: I grew to appreciate her loyal and successful service for Obama, and the fact that he had such high regard for her changed my mind considerably. She put in the work and the time and the world was more stable when she was Secretary of State

The Hillary Haven will open on 1/2/2018. A special spot for the Woman who would/should have been President. It’s a membership only forum designed to appreciate and inform about Hillary Clinton. Members only because I’m not interested in spam or people who want to fight/re-fight 2016.

Go away, Bernbots. He’s lying to you if he’s going to run in 2020. He would be 79, and at 79 doesn’t really want to run and become confined to a desk in Washigton. Better to be a gadly in a safe Senate seat. Also he knows he isn’t going to get the kid glove treatment this time. He’d be called out pretty quick in a field of Dem rivals.

And the Trumpers are also jonesing for a rematch, or failing that, they need Hillary to lead the resistance in order to get their hate on. And Hillary isn’t auditioning to be that Leader either. They can’t really indulge in Hillary Hate and stir up the sexists if all she’s doing is signing books (BTW she has a lot of them already, and will be writing more, I bet)

Hillary isn’t going to run because she realizes she had two shots already, and she’s 70 and doesn’t want to be compared to John McCain in age wise. She’s made history, and everyday is proving why she should have been President in the first place.

Nor does she want to get in the way of the activists who are fighting Trumpism and some Bernbot stuff. Celebrity tends to overpower at times. People tend to pay attention to the celebrity, not the cause, and her presence does just that.

And I have a feeling that she’s going to be more significant to the world than she would have been as President anyway. She would have spent all her time batting off the crazies and not on her agenda. While batting off the crazies is important, it’s no way to get things advanced.

She will find advancement in being free to work on those things she loves without worrying about votes.

Her loss will make a make a million flowers bloom and revive the democracy she holds dear.

Tonight I created what may be only one of two forums. One is Hillary Haven, to centralize all the things that Hillary is doing now, and the other might be something on the lines of better voting and better liberal media. I used to have forums before but keeping up with them is hard to do without help. So they will be closed until January 1st when I can take more time.

They will be membership forums-people will have to formally join them after the first comment. And they will be moderated forums as well.

This site is ready for Hillary

Sometimes things get better with age. I think Hillary Clinton is one of them. This time around, unlike 2008, she seems more self-assured and calmer. Perhaps it’s because she’s finally out of Bill’s shadow, so to speak. Secretary of State does that to you, giving you a chance to play on the world’s big stage. Perhaps that’s why up until Truman, the Secretary of State was third in line for the Presidency.

Hillary has worked hard, studied behind the master (her husband), and is ready to run and ready to govern.

And who knew that her competition would be the insane Trump, a reality show host with nothing to offer but arrogance and ignorance who traffics in fear and hate? And Bernie Sanders, barely a Democrat (became one this year)equally angry and barely more substance? This might be the year when a woman’s approach might smooth the anger, might be the solution to rage-a mindless rage that only seeks victims and a reason to rage against change.

Of course, nothing comes easy-the higher the stakes, the harder the work. I’m sure Hillary knows this-and knows she needs the help from many. I decided to become one of the helpers.I’ve already signed up to volunteer for the campaign, am already registered to vote, and have the necessary id. In later posts, I plan to do whatever little I can to help you do the same.

The Rest of My Site

  • Earth: Sounds of the Forest
    by CarolDuhart2 on October 29, 2017 at 8:54 pm

    Leaves crunching under one’s feet, one is also conscious of the silence except for the wind. Nature is going to rest (mostly) for a few months and the summers’s lively sounds are being replaced by a wind whistling through increasingly bare branches. These videos bring back that sound.   Then there’s the sounds of the Summer; crickets, owls, frogs, and the noise made by living things, animal and vegetable who have to pack a lot of their life in the several weeks when food is plentiful and the weather warm.

  • Walk By The Sea
    by CarolDuhart2 on October 2, 2017 at 11:38 pm

    I’ve never been to the coastline, but I still find the sound of ocean waves relaxing and healing. So walk along the beach with me (virtual), pick up the shells from the beach and driftwood, hear the gulls cry and look out over the endless horizon.   Now a few notes about this blog. First of all, none of these videos are mine. So special thanks goes out to those who have the equipment, endurance and patience to make them. Secondly, you may have noticed how long these videos are and wonder how you can listen to them all day. p>Continue reading Walk By The Sea […]
