After her speech honoring those in Libya at Andrews Air Force Base where the remains of those killed at the consulate were presented, the author of this article changed his mind about Hilary Clinton.
I have always known who this woman is. Incredible. But this author found out after watching the video below. He goes on to speak about Hilary's growth in the past 4 years. How many times has she wiped her tears, stiffened her spine and led us forward through tragedy and pain?
From the article, entitled "An apology to Hilary Clinton":
“If the last few days teach us anything, let it be this: that this work and the men and women who risk their lives to do it are at the heart of what makes America great and good,” said Clinton, her voice at times uneven with emotion for the dead men she had employed.
Then she said: “So we will wipe away our tears, stiffen our spines, and face the future undaunted.”
When her husband was president, I made a career out of trashing Hillary Clinton’s hairdos, pantsuits, her attempted health care coup, her right-wing conspiracy theories, her staying with that slippery serial philanderer. Four years ago in the presidential primary I rooted for Obama over her.
Yet when she finally conceded a totally unexpected defeat, a different Hillary Clinton began to emerge. ....In awful moments in history, some leaders rise to the occasion, and some don’t. Think Ronald Reagan’s reassurance after the Challenger disaster. Or George Bush on the rubble of Ground Zero after 9/11, telling the world we’d never forget. Friday, by comparison, was a tiny moment. Still, Hillary Clinton rose to meet it."
Hilary Clinton is nothing short of incredible. Everything happens for a reason. We could have used her as president, but we NEEDED her as Secretary of State. The night Osama Bin Laden died, when they released the photo of her face as she watched our Seals heading into Bin Laden's compound, I was on her side. And every since, I have stayed on her side.
You think she'll be Secretary of State under Romney? Think again.
Obama 2012. We need her.
