Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I've been in Vegas on "business" all week and of course I wore my Hillary lapel pin everywhere I went.

Things look good for Hillary out here, if the strippers are any clue.

I've managed to visit an assortment of Las Vegas entertainment venues, strictly for research purposes.  At every stop the young ladies would seek me out and say how cool it was to see a guy supporting Hillary.  Two of the women, both mothers, said they had registered to vote for the first time ever, just so they can vote for Hillary.

Read about their issues below the fold.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Believe it or not we actually discussed issues and what seemed so important to these women was #1 Health care and #2 Hillary's understanding of Women's issues.  These are women in tough situations working their butts off to support the only thing they truly care about, their kids.  Health care, education and woman's rights are critical issues to this demographic.  They also think it's time for a woman president who will as always cleanup after the boys.

I spent the week with hundreds of business associates from New Hampshire and my republican boss asked me to take off the lapel pin. I politely refused saying that the exhibit hall we were working in was full of NH voters.  We were an exhibitor.  I was shocked at how many of those supposed conservative NH republicans and Democrats came up to me and offered support.  They won't say so publicly for fear of business reprisals or being laughed out of the country club, but they like Hillary.

Please leave these ladies a tip in the Garter below.


I Love Las Vegas.
