Hillary Clinton has always been a favorite politician of mine. Without going into a full on political debate here, I think she has an amazing work ethic and solid ideas for the country. In a recent New York Magazine article entitled “Hillary in Midair,” she comes off as refreshingly normal.
“We get to be at home together a lot more now than we used to in the last few years,” says Clinton of her family. “We have a great time; we laugh at our dogs; we watch stupid movies; we take long walks; we go for a swim." This is a woman who has taken on the country’s troubles as her own, and she is giggling about how Bill and her spend their time.
And even though she did not win the presidential election, she's intent on doing right for this country. Of the 2016 election and her future, she tells New York, “I’m not in any hurry. I think it’s a serious decision, not to be made lightly, but it’s also not one that has to be made soon."
In some ways, she's frustrated with our political progress. She explains the contemporary political arena this way: “it’s like when you meet somebody at a party and they look over your shoulder to see who else is there, and you want to talk to them about something that’s really important; in fact, maybe you came to the party to talk to that particular person, and they just want to know what’s next.”
Hillary, you go girl. You deserve a little down time and maybe a few years to take count of your achievements. I'll be here to support you when the time is right! Would you vote for Hillary? Let us know in the comments!
