Some of you may think I’m nuts in sharing this link, but like many of you, I was beyond stunned by the news today. Even though we don’t have the full picture yet, there are new sites and efforts springing up all over the net. One involves a petition drive regarding a joint ticket. I wasn’t sure about how I felt re all this – after all… I’ve been fighting hard for over a year now to get Hillary into the general election so she could kick McSame’s butt, but my thoughts all came together when someone challenged the notion of supporting ANYthing invloving the DNC or staying with our party.
VoteBoth.com. I signed the petition, just in case this is something Hillary wants to pursue. I don’t claim to know what she wants – but if she thinks she can make a difference in our lives by trying to bring together our party as the VP then I’m all for it. I trust her and I’m guessing you all do to. Check it out and figure it out for yourselves, but I thought I’d throw this out there for anyone who might be interested in supporting this notion.
Someone asked a few of us on an email string why she should support this idea after what the DNC’s rule committee did to us last weekend and I replied with the following…
She’s been fighting for us – we can respect that by fighting for what she’s trying to do. I trust her judgment – I trust her experience – I trust her, period. If I get a sense that this is how she thinks she can continue to fight for us and for others worse off than we are in this life, then I’ll do it gladly and without any fuss or worry.
She’s shown me over the years that she’s worthy of that trust and it’s not something I give lightly.
This isn’t about me. It’s about my kids and all that I’m convinced Hillary can and WILL do for them going forward. THAT’s why I signed this petition and that’s why I signed the other one. Millions of people need her help now – whether it’s with her in the Oval Office, as our Vice President or as the Jr. Senator from NY. If she’s willing to do the job of VP then I want to help her get there.
For now though, my only concern is getting her the nomination and as long as she doesn’t release her delegates, I think there’s still a chance we can get her that nomination.
But we all follow our own heart at the end of the day. Peace.
Like I said, if this is what she wants then I want to help her get there. The VP spot could be offered and she cold tell BO to get stuffed, but I want to make sure she has that option. At the end of the day, I’m not sure how I feel about her actually being on the ticket, but I at least want to help keep that door open for her if she decides this is the best way she can continue to fight for universal health care, a quick and safe withdrawal of our troops from Iraq, rebuilding the middle class and halting foreclosures on homes, developing green collar jobs and reversing global warming… Hey I know it’s not the top of the ticket, but at least she’ll have a seat at the table on both ends of PA Ave. right?
