And if I were a Hillary supporter in another state, I would be saying “what the hell??“.
There are only a few equations that make sense for why she is coming to Omaha right off the convention bounce, and all of them include the word “Buffett.”
Look, if Hillary wins the election by a single electoral vote, the trip will be seen as pure genius. If she loses, it will be blasted. And if she wins by much more it will still be seen as goofy.
Of course, at some point it will probably be leaked that it is for a personal favor, or to pick up a major check or somesuch.
Anything else and I — and many others — just don’t get it.
And I’ll jam a pencil in my ear if I hear “Fight Song” again…
I can appreciate the excitement by some that a woman is a party nominee for President. But I would argue that most people still hate Hillary for who she is and what she has done, as opposed to because she is a woman. And that is also a great achievement. That would be, people judging her by the content of her character.
FWIW, I asked my 12 year old daughter last night what she thought of a woman getting the nomination. She shrugged and said it was essentially a zero to her. She has grown up with her mother always holding a job outside of “homemaker.” Her principal is a woman. All of her coaches are women. Heck, her dentist is a woman.
She doesn’t care about politics, but if she did, at least half of the speakers at the conventions were women. So the idea of a woman being President for her is neither here nor there. Of course this is much much different, particularly, for my parents’ generation. But the fact that it doesn’t really impress my daughter seems to me like a good thing.
Hillary’s speech was fine. Wasn’t as good as the Obamas’. Wasn’t as bad as Kaine’s.
On the whole not sure that her speech was better or worse than Trump’s.
While U.S. and world events are certain to come into play, and matter…boy is the first debate going to be Must See T.V.
If not now, then when?
On the homier front, there had been an expectation that State Senator Heath Mello was going to announce for…something…by now. Either Mayor or maybe City Council.
After the Mayor’s budget speech and the glowing stories and editorials, maybe that held him back.
We’ll wait and watch.
And for those of you “in the know” the rumors are FLYING around the state capitol right about now, with the state’s two major newspapers calling all they can about a crazy story of the day.
Sorry no hints here, and I may have to patrol the comments section.
But there could be a story hitting the internets at any moment…
