Why We Hate To Love Hillary

Okay, so she's pompous, among other things. And trustworthy? (sigh) Not so much. She speaks often, yet people find it hard to recall anything that she says. She has a look that often reminds us of our least favorite grandmother. You know, that relative who says they really love kids but pray that you won't call if you need a sitter. But, she's running for President; and like it or not, you're going to force yourself to love Hillary Clinton.

Sure, she questioned if Barack Obama was really born in the United States.  And yes, she did clumsily send those numerous emails as if she's "granny working that old flip-phone." But her heart is true... right?  I mean, we know about her unwillingness to accept additional security personnel after being informed about possible attacks on US government facilities in Benghazi, Libya; but hey, anyone would've refused extra security in a hostile environment... right?  

And I'll admit that I'm a supporter of Hillary simply because I've accepted the fact that I have to love her.  And yes, when I walked into the Democratic Headquarters in my city to grab some Clinton/Kaine t-shirts (although they did not have any), and when asked if I would knock on some doors to get people out to vote for Hillary I surprisingly yet humbly refused. Don't get me wrong, I've encouraged people to vote for Obama and I've even driven bus loads of people out to the polls for a losing Gore... But Hillary?  It's just so damn hard.

Still, she gets my vote. I am forcibly totally in love with Hillary. And I'm almost proud to say it. The country needs her experience. The country needs her non-inviting charm. The country needs her psuedo-Democratic views.  And most importantly, the country needs anyone other than Trump.  

So, current and distant democrats, let's put away our rigid yet truthful opinions of the lady and let's all come together as one strong willful party.  And repeat after me: I --- love --- (gulp) --- Hillary.

See, that wasn't so bad.  I suppose.


  1. I don't think anyone could have said it better. My 19-year old nephew just said to me that he doesn't want Hillary, but it's better her than Trump. I can't imagine what her approval rating will look like when she starts her presidency. Great article!
