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.

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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
