You’re either with her or with Trump. And I’m with her!
I campaigned for Hillary in 2008 and very much looking forward to her locking in the nomination. I had quite a bit of anxiety yesterday, waiting for the New York primary results to pour in, but it went as predicted and that was a relief.
Here in San Francisco, a George Clooney-hosted fundraiser for Hillary Clinton at the home of venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar attracted protestors. Pishevar responded, “Only in America would an Iranian-born immigrant son of a taxi driver and maid trying to help elect our first woman president be protested at his home. I welcome nonviolent protests as an exercise of our great democracy.” LOVE THAT!
As for feeling the Bern: Bernie, you and I share alma maters, but that is pretty much all we share. Your ideas are intriguing, but also quite aloof. Free college education? Who is going to pay for that? I surely will not!
Lastly, lest you think I have been a life-long Democrat. A donkey–I am not. I registered Republican at 18 and became an Independent in ’08 to campaign for Hillary. So yeah I voted for Bush and McCain.
I repeat: I’m with her. LET’S DO THIS!
