a few words about bill
side note: three posts in one day?! yes. my doc review project may be winding down and we're running out of work to do. without further ado...
i love bill. i really do.
but he showed up late.
but he talked about the tide of change. about how many republicans are running as democrats this year because they've been so alienated by this administration and can't take it anymore.
you could hear a pin drop during his pauses (which were many) and his voice was soft and thoughtful.
"it's like this everywhere i go," he said. "this is supposed to be a campaign rally and listen to how quiet you people are. and in ohio, it's the same thing. and virginia and everywhere else i've been. it's because this year is different. people know that something is going on. there's an intense dissatisfaction with the state of affairs in this country and people are paying attention. the situation is grave and people understand the value of their vote. but i urge you new yorkers not to become complacent. i'm a little worried about these races of hillary's, elliot's, andrew's and jim's. because in new york city, these candidates are doing so well that i'm afraid you won't vote. but we, as a party, need you to. we need you to spread the energy and the urgency of this election to everyone else across the country."
and he discussed his state-level jobs as governor and attorney general in arkansas. about how change is having to be initiated at the state level because the administration is so incompetent (my word, not his), i.e. the stem-cell research funding in CA, the universal health care strides in MA.
because he was late, i did not get to meet him (too many $25K donors he needed to shake hands with first). oh! and i went with black pearls which i'd forgotten i'd even owned, but which went perfectly.
