Yeah. It's me. That Hillary supporting chick. The one you love to argue with.
I really would love to share a dialogue with others on why I'm voting for Hillary. I would love to but that's not the kind of atmosphere I'm engaged
Day one key speakers included Michelle Obama, Bernie Sanders, Cory baker, Elizabeth Warren.
Michelle's speech which was so good was the anchor for the night. From her retelling of the morning in Jan 2009 when she and Barack loaded their
little girls one seven one ten into those big black suvs with all those big men ...with guns... and seeing those tiny faces pressed against the glass
and looking at each other and saying "what have we done? "
To the realization that she, a black woman, wakes up every day ...in a house built by slaves. To the current realization that a woman has won the
nomination of a major political party. Her speech was a rousing history of progress throughout our history. The important roll that immigrants have
played in our development as a country. The people who have chosen to call America home and the diverse talents our ancestors and current immigrants
that makes this country great. And I am saying yes great now right now.
Bernie closed the night with his signature speech about grassroots America and his gratitude to all of the folks who were there supporting him. He
touched on his platform points and was pleased to confirm which portions have become part of the party platform. He ended with a plea for unity and
strong words about the need to elect Hillary.
Day 2 was a this is Hillary Clinton.
The lady who worked to get funds to pay for healthcare for the first responders to 911 in her very first year as a junior senator. When no money had
been allocated to the city of N.Y.. How she visited a survivor in the hospital and is still in touch with that person today. From her years in college
and her devotion from the very start to children's causes.
It was a night of positive stories of her history and the people she has worked to help in the quiet real life moments where she's taken a hand of
someone who needed help and her assurance to that person that she would do what ever she could to effect what changes she could. The changes that have
come about to so many lives here and across the globe because of her devotion and hard work. That speaking is the easy part but it's the work that
effects the changes that affect lives.
The convention so far has included some but not a lot of talk aimed at trump.
His attitude about Muslims, his embarrassing mocking of a handicapped journalist and a bombshell about how in the days following 911 he wasnt amongst
those downtown in the dirt and dust and poisonous fumes. He wasnt in washington working to procure funds for the rebuilding of N.Y. and he wasnt
visiting survivors in a hospital. . He was busy filing tax papers that provided 150,000.00 to business hurt in the tragedy . He didn't have a business
affected but it was free money. Pocket change really but still an opportunity to make a buck.
All in all its been positive. It certainly has a woman's bent and it was aimed at improving her likeability in not so subtle ways.
At times it was sappy but mostly it was really good really informative.
Many of the stories I was already familiar with but some were new.
Well anyway that's my take.
