Why America Needs Hillary Clinton to be President Now

I had posted the following comments on AJC columnist Jay Bookman’s blog yesterday, June 4th and on June 12, 2015, regarding why America needs Hillary Clinton to be its next U. S. President at this point in America’s history.


June 12, 2015:

 Mary Elizabeth Sings:
“Nothing at all personal, here, Jay Bookman, but I just got totally bored with this article, and didn’t even take the time to digest the last 4 or 5 lines.  It probably appeals to most because it is so gossipy, but I simply lose interest in the shallow perceptions of others – Democratic and Republican, and any other label.

The bottom line to me is where a candidate places his or her vision for America.  Is that vision to enhance the lives of the middle and working classes or not?  And, how intense is his or her commitment to that goal?

It mattered not to me that FDR and Eleanor were socially and financially elite.  Their commitment was to the working/middle classes in this nation.

I believe Hillary Clinton has that commitment to the American people deep in her soul and in her gut and, therefore, she will see it through if she is elected President.  I also believe that she well knows, politically and intellectually, how this nation got into the hierarchical mess it is presently in, and that is another plus for her.  All of the rest, mentioned in your article, is of no interest to me.  Again, please believe.  My opinion was not meant to be hurtful, offensive, and/or mean-spirited.  It is just my truth as I want to share it with you and with others.”



Mary Elizabeth, June 4th:

“My goodness, how this nation needs Hillary Clinton – right at this moment in its history.  Her words from the video, below:

‘We have a responsibility to say clearly and directly what’s really going on in our country because what is happening is a sweeping effort to disempower and disenfranchise people of color, poor people, and young people from one end of our country to the other (applause) because since the Supreme Court eviscerated a key provision of the Voting Rights Act in 2013, many of the states that previously faced special scrutiny because of a history of racial discrimination have proposed and passed new laws that make it harder than ever to vote  –  NC – went after practically anything that made voting either inconvenient or inaccessible – early voting, same day registration, extend voting hours to accommodate long lines. . . . We should be doing everything we can to get our young people more engaged in democracy, not less.  In fact, I’d say it is a cruel irony, but no coincidence, that Millennials, the most diverse, tolerate, and inclusive generation in American history, are now facing so much exclusion and we need look no further than Texas, where you can use a gun permit for a valid reason for registration but a student ID is not good enough, to see why. . . .’


You go, lady.  Tell it, exactly like it is, and turn this nation back over to the people for whom it was designed – through your insight, courage to speak truth, and force of commitment to American justice for the middle and lower classes – the government of, by, and for the people, themselves.



“Two very significant accomplishments of Hillary Clinton which few point out:  Hillary Clinton spent her time in the U. S. Senate building good relationships with fellow senators on both sides of the political aisle, and spent her time as Secretary of State, following President Obama’s lead, in building good relationships with world leaders throughout the globe.  Don’t think that that reaching out to others is not going to help change the world’s trajectory one day from militarism, imperialism, and self-orientation to dialogue and nonviolence in solving world problems and in shaping the world’s consciousness more to egalitarianism, starting with women’s equal rights, than the hierarchical power perceptions that have long created chaos on the world’s stage.  President Obama’s visionary mind well knew what he was doing when he chose Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State.  They have the same world vision, but not the same personalities.

It’s time for Americans to see beyond personalities and to capture the visions of politicians.  And, it is past time for insecure men to get over feeling threatened by strong women like Hillary Clinton.  Not all women can be clinging vines and be true to themselves.”
