As you know I am a big supporter of Barack Obama in this year's elections. Still am. Bottom line, I think he's the best candidate and I want the Democrats to win.
But this morning, as I watched Hillary on the campaign trail, I was brought close to tears, seeing how hard she was working. What a solitary, brave figure she cut in the middle of the masses that she speaks to daily. What I saw today was a strong silhouette of her as a woman. Leaving all the baggage, and all the politics, and all the strategizing behind, for the first time I really saw her as a woman. And I was filled with respect for all it took for her to get to where she is today. I related to her purely on our shared gender this morning, I believe I saw her with my heart, and not my head. It made me reconsider my vote. A dear friend of mine put it this way, "a vote for Hillary is a vote for us".
The number of us who can relate to Hillary through our hearts is large in 2008. As we continue to gain more of what we have earned and deserve as time moves on, younger women will be voting with their heads and their hearts.
But today, in 2008, this baby-boomer's heart votes for Hillary, but her head won't follow!
