All hands on deck!
Fighter, fighter, fighter, fighter!
Reach for the stars
First you gotta have a vision
Reach for the highest
If you could see it, you could be it
And I know [we] can get there one day.

Here’s the 2016 voting lineup for Democratic primaries and caucuses:
Sat 2/27 South Carolina
Tue 3/1 (Super Tuesday states)
Democrats Abroad (3/1-8)
I know we can get there . . . TODAY!
This is your campaign, and it is a campaign to break down every barrier that holds you back.…
We’re going to build ladders of opportunity in their place so every American can go as far as your hard work can take you.…
Now, no one can get this done alone, not even the President of the United States. It’s got to be the mission of our entire nation. I have never believed in dividing America between us and them. We are all in this together, we all have to do our part. —Hillary Clinton, excerpted from 2/20/16 Nevada Caucuses Victory Speech
–March 16, 2011
ABC Eyewitness News has just reported Hillary Clinton said today that she won’t run for President in 2016. If Obama wins in 2012, she will not stay on as Secretary of State, nor does she have interest in being Vice President. She is very happy in her current position and looks forward to the next two years of working at the State Department.
Addendum: HRC’s statements are from a stellar sit down interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer during her visit to Egypt. In answer to Blitzer’s questions, she also stated that she does not want to be Secretary of Defense. Her empathetic and serious expressions of concern about the nuclear threat in Japan were delivered much more eloquently than the president’s cool, monotonic, prepared statements.
Clinton was ebullient in characterizing her good fortune to represent the US and President Obama in helping solve international problems on the world stage at this time in history.
Addendum.1: (continued from Wolf Blitzer’s interview)
Libya: SOS Clinton said she thinks Obama is doing the right thing in not taking unilateral action on Libya. Paraphrasing the SOS: We have a lot of problems around the world that need resolution (she named several countries, but I couldn’t type that fast–she’s so smart), but they must be authorized by the international community.
Japan: It’s minute by minute, but we’re currently not recommending that U.S. personnel leave the country. Based on the feedback she’s getting from the experts, there was a lot of confusion as there would be in any disaster of this magnitude. “I mean if you’re hit first by an earthquake then a tsunami [….]”
That’s our girl!
