GIRL POWER

WELL, IT'S OFFICIALLY OVER. OUR GIRL HILLARY DID HERSELF PROUD BY ALL ESTIMATES. IF THERE'S ANYONE LEFT ON THE PLANET THAT DOESN'T BELIEVE SEXUAL BIAS EXISTS, I SUGGEST THEY COME OUT OF THAT CAVE THEY OCCUPY AND SMELL THE COFFEE. MY DEAR FRIENDS, THIS CAMPAIGN WAS A REAL EYE-OPENER. THE FACT THAT OUR UNITED STATES RATES 68TH IN THE WORLD FOR FEMININE REPRESENTATION IN GOVERNMENT IS AN EMBARRASSMENT FOR ALL OF US.

I EXPERIENCED A PREJUDICE AGAINST THE OLDER WOMAN A FEW YEARS AGO AND IT INSPIRED ME TO PICK UP A PEN AND WRITE MY BOOK IN HER DEFENSE. LIKE LOTS OF WOMEN, I CRINGED EVERY TIME I HEARD A COMMENT OR REFERRENCE TO WHAT HILLARY WOULD LOOK LIKE AS SHE AGED, OR HER CHOSEN WARDROBE FOR THE CAMPAIGN, OR THE FACT THAT SHE WAS OVERWHELMED ONE DAY AT HOW CRUEL THE JOURNEY HAD BECOME AND ALLOWED HERSELF TO SHOW SOME EMOTION.

I DON'T KNOW ANY WOMEN WHO ARE NOT GRATEFUL TO HILLARY FOR UNDERTAKING HER HISTORIC GROUND AND CEILING BREAKING EFFORT TO BECOME OUR NEXT PRESIDENT. THE ADMIRATION I FEEL FOR HER KNOWS NO BOUNDS OR LIMITS. SHE IS REMARKABLE, COURAGEOUS, STRONG AND COMMITTED IN WAYS THAT WOULD CHALLENGE THE BEST OF US. MAY I SPEAK FOR ALL WOMEN WHEN I OFFER MY THANKS AND APPRECIATION TO HER FOR RAISING THE BAR, ENLIGHTENING THE MASSES AND SHOWING THE WORLD WHAT A CAPABLE WOMAN CAN DO. MORE THAN THAT, I THANK HILLARY FOR GIVING EVERY YOUNG WOMAN A REASON TO BELIEVE THAT EVERY DREAM IS POSSIBLE.
