I trust Hillary Clinton...

From Barack Obama' Campaign Manager David Plouffe:

"Fairly or not, the majority of voters don't trust Senator Clinton."

I trust HRC to protect and push for women's rights, worldwide.

Take it away, Correntians,

Why do you trust Hillary?

... because I've never heard her pretend to be more progressive than she actually is, and she's as progressive -- if not more so than -- Obama (and, of course more than McCain) on every issue, as far as I can tell.

And because she knows there is a vast rightwing conspiracy. Obama either doesn't, or he's lying about it (and that matters to me a whole lot more than whether Hillary misremembered or embellished her Bosnia story).

obsessive and irrational hatred of the Clintons inspires great trust as well--media judgment and priorities are not the people's by any means. (this also goes for the permanent DC elite too, who believe "they came in and trashed the place, and it's not their place")

Eleanor Clift in Newsweek-- Settling Scores: If Hillary Clinton finds a way to win, she'll have a long list of grudges and grievances. -- http://www.newsweek.com/id/134012

"If the Clintons get back into the White House, it will be retribution time, like the Corleone family consolidating power in "The Godfather," where the watchword is, "It's business, not personal." ...
When the polls closed in Pennsylvania and the race was for a short while too close to call, you could see the barely restrained glee among the commentators that perhaps the moment had finally arrived: Hillary might be gone!

Hillary lost the media a long time ago through a combination of arrogance and entitlement, ..."

If the Village hates Hillary, that's a plus, in my eyes.

a gigantic plus--there hasn't been this big a disconnect bet what our DC officials do and what we are screaming for them to do in years and years--if ever.

I couldn't agree more that the media's treatment of the Clintons is driven by the media's arrogance and entitlement. Oh, wait.

Speaking of trusting Hillary on Women's Issues, this video of Chelsea at Duke talking about Hillary's work on women's issues (and how those relate to human issues and national security) is making the rounds. My favorite part is how uncomfortable the male cop looks when she starts discussing pay inequality.

and because I got to watch her come through fire and rain during Bill's two terms in the White House. She did it with class, and she never forgot that the point wasn't what the media wanted her to say or what the media wanted to spin her words to mean, the point was to do the work to make a better world.

both of them: Hillary and Chelsea (thanks, BDB)...

I want Chelsea to run in 2012 (OMG!!! DYNASTY!!!!!111!)... or just for the fun of it, let Hillary pick Chelsea as VP... a "Clinton / Clinton" ticket would make so many heads explode the popping sound would kick the earth out of orbit of the sun (kinda like that old 70s British series, Cosmos 1999).

For the youngun' among you, here's the intro of Cosmos 1999:

Ok, usually celebrity endorsements don't mean two hoots to me, but I love Sean Astin. I have seen him at a lot of Clinton events, it seems he is really dedicated to her campaign.

And Chelsea has grown into such an impressive woman(that sentence seems silly, since she's my age, but oh well). A lot of people turn out good, despite their parents, and lot turn out bad despite their parents. But when I remember the horrid things that were said about her as a young child, especially about her looks, and at an age when that petty shit seems so important, and then I see her working so hard for her mother. It would have been perfectly understandable if she had chosen to forgo this election, after how she was savaged. But she has chosen to put herself out there to face it all anyways(and I completely understand her desire to avoid the press, though I don't think she will be able to do it through Nov if she continues to be a surrogate), because of her devotion to her mother, says so much to me about what kind of person Hillary Clinton is.

And that's why I trust Hillary Clinton.

I thought I had recognized Sean Astin but I wasn't sure.

We should have a whole kinda testimonial page: "The Hillary We Trust" (kinda like "the Hillary we know").

She's not a wuss, and she negotiates. She helps those around her, and she keeps going. She gets bitten a lot and I don't know how she keeps going, but she does. A vote for Hillary is a vote for ourselves.

GO HILL!

I trust Hillary Clinton

--because she's a politician who doesn't claim to be above politics

--because she's the smartest person in the room

--because, though she has made mistakes and compromises, she has a record of accomplishments for the good of humankind

--because of the light of love and pride I see in Chelsea's eyes

--because of the light of love and pride I see in Bill's eyes

--because she never stops fighting

--because she never stops thinking about tomorrow (sorry, got carried away)

Oh, wait. Sean Astin. Damn. Now, with John Astin, you would have had something.

I trust Hillary because I like boring bullet points about policy, and why? Because you can hold somebody accountable for policy, but you can't hold them accountable for nebulous slogans like "Change" or "Transformation."

she really believes in what she's doing. I have never seen a better example of a dedicated public servant.

She works very hard so I don't have to.

Plus, she reminds me of the song "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba:

"I get knocked down, but I get up again
You're never gonna keep me down"

As Mattie Ross would say, she has "true grit."

--that's key--we hire Presidents so they they'll do stuff, not to tell us we have to be a movement for stuff to happen, or that they can't do it without us or without some fundamental change needed first.
