Hillary My Hero!!

She has set the bar very high!!
The woman is a genius
Ambitious and courageous
I am almost envious
Determined and undeterrable
She's uncomparable
Compressed and oppressed from every corner
Yet she stands tall and stronger
Praised for her feminist activism
Yet criticized for her energism
How does she do it
I can only imagine it
Looked down for not dumping Bill
In her pain decided to climb the Hill
It takes one of a kind
To look throughout the blind
Despite the clouds and the crowd
And find something to be proud
Hillary you're my hero
To you my chapeau and my bravo
You have set the bar very high!!

The following comment on a NY Times OPed struck me and I ought to share it:

It was about 10 years ago I didn’t really know how I felt about Hillary Clinton. As a woman trying to make my way in the working world since the 60’s, facing gender stereotypes, closed doors and the infuriating hypocrisy of covert sexism, I couldn’t help being a little resentful of someone like her who had been so successful in life. Then a polster called and asked me what woman I most admired in the world. With only a moment’s thought, I said: “Hillary Clinton” -and I meant it. I realized then how much I would like to have strengths like hers - to be able to stand up to so many mean spirited attacks and not be defeated or discouraged by them. Sure, don’t we all hate those smart girls who always make the right move, the teachers pets, the one with all the answers, the one who may be smarter than us? But that is who we need in leadership!
