But last night...last night...Hillary was like a new woman. It was like with the chains of competition unleashed she could let down her guard and be nice. And, honestly, I thought she was quite witty and charming. I mean the whole, "No way, no how, no McCain." was very witty and made me chuckle regardless if I agree or not.
And when she said, "I want you to ask yourselves: Were you in this campaign just for me? Or were you in it for that young Marine and others like him? Were you in it for that mom struggling with cancer while raising her kids? Were you in it for that boy and his mom surviving on the minimum wage? Were you in it for all the people in this country who feel invisible?"
Then on the heels of that she made the Tubman analogy with, "Don't ever stop. Keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going."
When she was in the midst of this, I will be honest...she had me...I teared up and....and...for a moment...I really connected with her. She moved me.
Although I am still an undecided voter, she persuaded me a little when she said, "We need to elect Barack Obama because we need a President who understands that America can’t compete in a global economy by padding the pockets of energy speculators, while ignoring the workers whose jobs have been shipped overseas. We need a President who understands that we can’t solve the problems of global warming by giving windfall profits to the oil companies while ignoring opportunities to invest in new technologies that will build a green economy."
Can I get an A-MEN?
And she almost cinched me when she referred to her supporters as "my sisterhood of the traveling pantsuits."
But at the end of the day, I can never get behind someone who wears a hideous orange pantsuit. Ev-er.
