Lost, but not a loser

I was in the car this morning, eyes filling up with tears and listening to HRC on NPR. I'm sad today because as a woman who believes in the fight for equality and the empowerment of women around the world it saddens me immensely that we will not have one of the brightest women in history as our next President. An opportunity for the advancement for all women - LOST. I was *trying* to explain the speech to Big girl who wanted to know why everyone was clapping for her. I mumbled something and hope it was understandable and yet coherent for her to understand.

She may have lost the party nomination for President but she is not a loser in my eyes. I will, of course, be supporting Obama because God knows we will be going to hell in a hand basket if we have McCain.

Just my opinion.

I'm not really a Hillary fan, but I do appreciate what her candidacy means for future women. She really did do a nice job with the speech.

Ah, the speech made me well up too. It was a sad day for the future of women, but I appreciate her eloquence.

It was a really lovely speech. I've always been an Obama supporter, but I do have to give HRC a huge amount of respect and admiration for what she has done!
