Yes, its early. Yes, we only JUST had a Presidential election. But for those of us who still carry the torch, no time is too soon for the first woman President. Hillary in 2016!
The dust has settled from Mrs. Clinton's departure from State Department, where she was a loyal and competent member of the Obama Administration. Now she is writing a book about her time on Foggy Bottom. She just came out for marriage equality.
Meanwhile, slowly but surely the apparatus of another run for President has begun to form.
She has been a wife and mother, a First Lady, a US Senator, a former Presidential candidate, a Secretary of State and now is by most opinion polls one of the most respected Democrats in the country. She beats GOP types like Marco Rubio in their home states.
In 2008 she could have thrown a fit, a la Kennedy in 1980, and turned the Democratic Convention into a food fight. Instead she bit her tongue and did what many women have had to do - acquiesce to the reality of a powerful male-controlled world that demanded that women be "team players" - even when it is clear the men hold themselves to another standard. Maybe she will now benefit from their gratitude - but we should not count on it.
Those of us who were for Hillary in 2008 will soon be given one of the rarest gifts in life - a second chance.
Let us dig up those muskets we buried, clean them off and be ready to shoulder arms once more. Make sure the old flags are stored within easy reach - we will soon unfurl them to wave proudly again.
We await only the word. Let the Blonde Lady speak it...and we shall be there.
Hillary in 2016!
