The Charleston Gazette has an OP/ED by Hillary Clinton today describing why she is running for president and what her goals are as our next president. It’s well worth a read… Here’s a few quips:
I was raised to believe in the promise of America. My grandfather was a factory worker, and my father served in the Navy and started a small business. My mother had a difficult childhood, but provided a loving home for our family and while she never got to attend college, she was determined that her children would. I have had every opportunity in life because of their hard work and sacrifice.
I carry with me not just their dreams, but the dreams of people like them all across our country: people who embrace hard work and opportunity, who never waver in the face of adversity, and who work day and night to make a better life for your children.
For the past seven years, I know so many of you have felt invisible to our president – holding your breath at the gas pump and the grocery checkout line; wondering what you’ll do when health insurance disappears when a job does; seeing your loved ones who served our country in war ill-served when they return home.
I am running for president to stand for you and fight for your dreams and your future. I am running to give every child and every family the same opportunities and blessings that I had.
I believe Hillary Clinton is our best choice. I believe Hillary Clinton “knows how to make this economy work for middle-class families again and who is ready on day one to be commander in chief and keep our families safe.”
