Imagine, a Democrat standing up on a controversial issue that affects disadvantaged and marginalized people! Every once in a while, you don't have to imagine it.

It's a baseline, sure. Any self-respecting Democrat should be able to agree with what Obama's Secretary of State just said without any hesitation at all.

But it sure is nice to see it said!

No weaseling. No equivocating. Just a strong, passionate, clear statement of reality. And no ums, ers, or aaaaaands. No teleprompter. No notecards.

And so, another Republican politely, but firmly, put in his place; maybe he and Mike Pence can cry in their beer together.

My respect for this woman just continues to grow.

Boy, does she look tired, though. More tired than the primaries, if you can believe that!

I also imagine she's coming back so strong because of sentiments she heard on her travels.

Don't you all just love clarity? I've been jonesing for clarity, lately. She's quite an impressive SoS, and that's really quite an understatement. But, then again, I'm still begrudingly warming up to her as SoS.

but damn!....what could have been...

I'm almost weeping -- it's rare enough to hear such an unequivocal statement from a major politician on abortion that it's still worth applauding -- thank you, Madame Secretary.

On a side note, no one can say 'Senator, fuck off' quite as classily as Clinton.
