Amidst all of our hopes and dreams, our valiant efforts for our three candidates Clinton, Obama, and Edwards (who deserves much more than just being excluded from the results).

I wish for Hillary, with all my heart.  I've been around for a long, long time.  I've seen her fight from the day one when the Republicans started against her in Arkansas.  She married Bill way before there was any inkling of him becoming anything.  He was a poor student hippy back then.  She had come around from being a Goldwater Girl at the age of 16, to becoming a believer in Martin Luther King.

Bill and Hillary wanted to change the world.  They married each other for love and the same beliefs:  equal rights for all.

Bill was elected Governor of Arkansas, even though he was basically a Hippy, one of those, and his wife was the same kind of thing.  How they did it escapes me, but they did NOT come from elite families/dynasties.

She early on in her life rejected the Goldwater/Republican philosophy she had been brought up in her own family, and joined Martin Luther King.

Her philosophy ever since then has been consistent.

But I don't even want to get hung up in this.

I really, really want Hillary to become our president right now.

She's worked so hard for women, children, families, and veterans, plus so much more.

I know that I will not get much mileage from a potential comment war, so just let me offer a song, with the hope that we can get behind the message for all of us.

I love Hillary first.  I believe she's the best.

I love Obama as well...and will give him all my love and support to help him achieve the things we ALL want.

Here's the song, and may we all hear the message of it:

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.
