I’m taking a little break from work to give a shout out to Hillary Clinton. One aspect of Hillary that has particularly drawn me to support her is her fighting spirit. I can’t think of many who have had to deal with as much crap from the media as she has. But she somehow manages to brush it aside and get the job done. We all remember the days after Iowa where the world was writing Hillary’s political obituary and telling us how she could exit gracefully. She came back and won New Hampshire and Nevada. After a horrible February, the naysayers were naysaying and telling us how she needs to exit. She decisively won Rhode Island, Ohio, and Texas. Hillary is a fighter. And that’s one thing I’m looking for in a commander in chief.
These days, it seems like the media is having too much fun playing the “lets blame Hillary” game. The media and the Obama campaign blame Hillary for Obama’s picture in honorary Kenyan garb (as if sharing customs of other countries is a bad thing) despite trivial searching that shows otherwise;. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear the media and folks like Keith Olberman and Kos blaming Rev. Wright’s “controversial comments” on Hillary Clinton. But you know what? Despite what they are going to throw at her, I’m sure Hillary will get back up and get the job done.
In honor of Hillary’s fighting spirit, and to celebrate the weekend, I dedicate Pat Benetar and “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” to Hillary Clinton and all her supporters who keep getting called lovely names.
