Why I’m Supporting Hillary
It has been my policy not to endorse Democratic candidates in the primary, especially this early in the process. However, I feel so strongly about the need for this nation to elect Hillary Clinton as our next President, that I don’t want to waste any time.
With the DNC’s convention coming to neighboring Philadelphia in 2016, I want Pennsylvania to be the place where the first woman President in American history is nominated. The place where American history began has the chance to make history again.
But it’s not just about history, it’s about the future, and Hillary Clinton is the leader America needs. There may well be Democratic primary contenders, but I am confident that Hillary Clinton is the most qualified individual in this country to be President, regardless of party, or who may emerge in the coming year.
We know Hillary. We know her strengths. She’s been a constant fixture in our living rooms for nearly 25 years, fighting for what’s right and giving voice to the least among us, whether as First Lady, United States Senator, or Secretary of State. She’s tough. She’s battle-tested. She’s ready.
Sure, you may not agree with Hillary 100% of the time, and that’s okay, but the alternatives on the Republican side would be disastrous for America. Consider this: all of the progress we’ve achieved under President Obama would be systematically undone by a President Paul/Cruz/ Rubio/Huckabee, or dare I say… Bush.
This was an easy decision for me. I couldn’t be more excited to support Hillary for President. It’s an endorsement I make with great pride. I hope my fellow Bucks County Democrats will join me and join Hillary in this journey that I hope will end at the White House.
