“Don’t you someday want to see a woman President of the United States?”

If you'd like to get the best hints so far regarding an upcoming historic candidacy, watch this terrific speech.
Hillary Clinton got a warm welcome at the 30th anniversary Emily’s List gala Tuesday night, calling for equal pay and paid leave before a crowd that’s worked to elect pro-choice Democratic women for decades. 
Accepting the fundraising group’s “We Are Emily” award, the former Secretary of State and presumptive Democratic presidential front runner gave a taste of the “middle-class economics” she’ll likely campaign on, calling for greater protection of labor unions and taking digs at Republicans’ “old trickle-down economics.” 
“We’re fighting for an economy that includes everyone and works for everyone,” Clinton said. 
A progressive, populist fighter is about to emerge on behalf of the American people...and the Republicans aren't going to know what hit them.


  1. I like her tone and pacing in this speech. She's being very careful at this point, as she should be. I didn't yet listen the whole speech, but I dipped into bits here and there. Really good phrasing on this part: "Our gains (economy, etc.) are clear but fragile." That's really it in a nutshell: We have to keep moving in the right direction.

    1. I'm encouraged by what I'm hearing so far. I think it's going to be a GREAT campaign and I can't wait for it to start!
