It's crazy I know, but there it is...
The thought that after everything we have been through, that she's been through, that another woman will get recognition as "First."
She would be introduced as the legitimate President of the United States, and she would introduce the nominee and pass the mantle to her / him.
Instead we are almost certainly going to have to endure months of our candidates fighting with each other over who is most unlike Clinton or, at best, arms length backhanders about Clinton being the past of the Democratic Party and it's time to move on.
The silliest, fastest, and most successful reeducation effort in the world happened in 2015 / 16.
It's a total joke really.
But not the funny kind.
In 2014 @HillaryClinton was legitimately the most popular political figure in the nation. Her approvals were in the 60s.
I can take it, understand it, accept it as inevitable even, that Republicans some independents fell for the ruse, but not us.
Like don't throw your fellows under the bus. After what we did to @algore in 2000 I couldn't imagine we'd allow it again in 2016.
16 years later I watched as people who have used @HillaryClinton's celebrity to boost their own reputations and to raise unheard of amounts of campaign dollars, not only not step up to defend her, but try to jump up and down on her imagined political grave.
It will never not be mind boggling to me, not now, not decades from now.
Shit makes no sense.
We are only left with the cards still on the table, and we have to play them.
And I will play them. I will focus on who to support in 2020 and that person will be the nominee. And I will fight for them harder than I fought for their predecessors.
We'll have to battle many of the same monsters.
But at least we know their faces, and to the extent we don't?
Yes, experience will matter then, just as it akways has.
Russia is out here fully representing.
Bernie & his minions are still out here trying to take down any Democratic comer. @BetoORourke is only the latest & will not be the last.
As his fans cont to come at us for calling him out it's really hard not laugh in their face when they say "unity."
Watching his team come into this still as cocky as ever makes me really not be able to take them seriously.
Bernie couldn't accomplish shit in 2016 even when he had actual political capital to spare and the media was licking his ass.
We didn't need them then.
He deserves no more than that, so flip it freely.
I'll never be able to thank her enough as she'll do what she's always done. Fight.
She will make me proud like she always does.
She will be a good Democrat and better American.
In 2016 she was the first woman to be nominated by a major party for President. She battled half the world, misogyny up to her eyeballs, and the world's worst man.
And she won.
@HillaryClinton will always be First.
