Girlfriend, I’m your age, I think about a few days older. I just got around to reading your book, Living History, and I LOVED that Hillary, you are a role model for young women in that book.
Fun reading what our parallel lives were like, we both came from loving and strong faith based families. You went on to an elite girly college while I was flunking out of secretary school. I was bored, but that landed me a job on Capitol Hill before you! Yes it was convenient my school was in downtown DC, so barcrawling in Georgetown was networking in those days. Yes, the Capitol Hill Employment office was recruiting anyone who could type more than 30 words a minute (Thank you Wilbur Mills )
Sorry, I’m not going to read Hard Choices because I may have given up on you, along with the Dem Party, about that time. You know that time, when you left many of your supporters at the altar of the Obama Greek Columns and Throne and decided to “work” on his team? (I so wanted you to Teddy his Jimmy all the way to the 2008 Dem Convention floor, you would have lost (?), stayed in the Senate,maybe go on to be the NY Gov (?) Sorry, coulda,woulda,shoulda, huh?
And loving congratulations to you new Grandma, there’s nothing more special. My daughter’s Chelsea’s age, but we threw her out of the house when she was 17 (in that send her to a NYC college because she’s so much smarter than us way, Way!). She did fine, like mom, got bored after a coupla years, dropped out, started a girlie band, went homeless, started a business and became a Rock Star with her own blood and tears. And a few years later, and NYT Item She lives in BushwickBK now and I’m sure has worked her arse off harder than Chels.
Don’t run for President, Obama ruined that for all of us. Do a Sarah, have fun slinging arrows across the bow. I know I am. Love you Hills, but just stop.
