Today we begin with Hillary’s closing argument and agenda for the first 100 days in USA Today.
Everything I’ve done, as first lady, senator, or secretary of State, I’ve done by listening to people and looking for common ground, even with people who disagree with me. And if you elect me on Tuesday, that’s the kind of president I’ll be….
First, we will put forward the biggest investment in new jobs since World War II. We’ll invest in infrastructure and manufacturing to grow our economy for years to come. We’ll produce enough renewable energy to power every home in America within a decade….
Second, we will introduce comprehensive immigration reform legislation. The last president to sign comprehensive immigration reform was Ronald Reagan, and it was a priority for George W. Bush….
Third, to break the gridlock in Washington, we need to get secret, unaccountable money out of our politics. It’s drowning out the voices of the American people. So within my first 30 days, I will introduce a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United….
Fourth, we need to get started on end-to-end criminal justice reform. Too many people have been sent away for far too long for non-violent offenses. I believe our country will be stronger and safer when everyone has respect for the law and everyone is respected by the law.
There’s so much more we need to do together, and we certainly won’t get it all done in the first 100 days. But we’re going to roll up our sleeves and get to work for American families — and I’ll never, ever quit.
It looks like the last Stronger Together rally will be in Philadelphia, PA this afternoon featuring President Barack Obama and Michele Obama together with Bill, Chelsea, and Hillary Clinton.
Everyone in the campaign has been working furiously in the last days.
Fox reports Chelsea was already in the Philadelphia area to Get Out the Vote.
Loud, passionate cheers as Chelsea Clinton took the stage before an intimate crowd of inspired Democrats in the city of Chester.
“I know that if we keep rooting this election in what really is at stake - for or families - or communities our country we will win.”
Committed volunteers planned to spend all day canvassing Chester, targeting registered Democrats who may not have made it to the polls in the past.
Hillary also started yesterday in the Philadelphia area, where she attended church at Mt. Airy Church of God in Christ. CBS reports:

“I know that if we keep rooting this election in what really is at stake - for or families - or communities our country we will win.”

Clinton started by expressing her gratitude to church officials, and singled out New Jersey US Senator Corey Booker, who quoted the late Maya Angelou. Clinton said she misses the outspoken poet, who’d have a lot of choice things to say about this election.
She called on those gathered to vote, and to reach out to those who might need help getting to the polls, saying the stakes are too high to get it wrong on Election Day.
She also stopped by Cedar Park Cafe, chatting with diners and posing for a few photos.ho may not have made it to the polls in the past.
Clinton then traveled to Cleveland, OH, where LeBron James introduced her to her audience.
 She amazingly went on to a further stop in Manchester, NH, where she appeared together with Khizr Khan.
 Bill Clinton was campaigning hard for Hillary in Flint and Lansing, MI, as the Detroit News reports.
Former President Bill Clinton made a passionate case for his wife Sunday in Michigan, seeking to energize voter turnout efforts for Hillary Clinton with speeches at two predominately African-American churches in Flint and a union hall in the state’s capital city.
“Don’t let people tell you our best days are behind us,” Clinton told a full house at UAW Local 652 headquarters in Lansing, where he touted a Friday jobs report showing the country added 161,000 jobs in October while wages grew an average of 10 cents.
“We don’t need to go back and reconfigure the social totem pole the way it was 50 years ago. It did not work for a lot of people. Hillary’s for tearing down all the totem poles so we’ll be stronger together.
The amazing Hillary Speeches site, put together its full list of commentary on Hillary’s Comprehensive Platform, and it is a wonderful source of all kinds of policy details that she has put together over the campaign. Here are just the entries since October 19.
Bonus Tweets:
This is the last day of the campaign before polls open everywhere for voting tomorrow! It has been such a long haul since the earliest days, and many unable to vote early have been waiting patiently to elect the first woman as President. Make your plan to vote!
Have a terrific day, everyone!
*** SUPPORT HILLARY CLINTON ***

  1. I just watched James Taylor on MSNBC - Katy, and his wife soothed my soul, she refused to answer a question about the 'negatives,' in her refusal she pretty much said those questions make that false narrative. James talked about how emails should stay private like conversations, that can't be 'heard' in context, the jokes aren't 'understood.' And then I hear Donald claiming Donna got debate questions and passed them on, and she didn't, she was joking, she was that confident in her ability to guess.

    James and his wife are smart people, not just kind.
