Why Hillary Clinton Should Win
Posted March 22, 2008on:
I have been a supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton since the beginning of the 2008 American presidential campaign. Although most young Americans think that Obama is the right person to bring change to the old kind of American politics I choose to stand behind Hillary’s shoulder. I seriously think Hillary Clinton should be the next American President.
When I see Hillary Clinton I remember my mother’s countless sacrifices that she made when I was a fragile child suffering from asthma. I remember my mother’s story how she took me to the hospital every week and always hoped that I would gain more weight. She fought hard against people’s sarcasm and always told people proudly that someday I would be a smart man.
When I look at Hillary Clinton’s eyes I look at other women’s eyes in the world who work so hard without complaints for the sake of their husbands and children.
It was Hillary Clinton who stood by Bill Clinton during the most embarrassing sex scandal in the history of American politics. Hillary Clinton refused to let him go because she knew it was her duty as a wife to give her husband another chance.
In her 2003 memoir she said, “No one understands me better and no one can make me laugh the way Bill does. Even after all these years, he is still the most interesting, energizing and fully alive person I have ever met.”
Do you think Bill Clinton would have done the same thing if Hillary Clinton had committed sexual relations with other man? I don’t think so. He obviously would have left her.
It’s an ironic truth that it’s always the wife who cleans the husband’s mess. When all that a husband can say is “I’m sorry” it’s the wife who stands strong and wipes her tears off her face and says with a rumbling voice, “I forgive.”
For some people Hillary Clinton’s decision was a stupid move and a sign of how weak she was as a woman. But in my humble opinion, Hillary was a winner. She showed people how strong she was and how she decided to fight back. She decided to save her marriage for her husband, her daughter, and most importantly for herself.
Hillary Clinton’s victory is the victory of all women in the world. It’s the victory of my mother and your mother. It’s the victory of all working women in the world who struggle so hard at work to build their careers but at the same time never forget to be good wives for their husbands and loving mothers for their children. Just like Hillary told the cheering crowd while campaigning in Maine, “I’m a mother first, and a candidate next.”
Hillary Clinton’s victory will be a symbol of how a woman can be a great leader as great as other men.
On the other hand, America may need a woman’s touch to soften its brutal image in some parts of the world. George W. Bush has successfully transformed America into a bully: A country known for its arrogance and selfishness.
America might benefit Hillary Clinton’s mellowness as she cried in New Hampshire last January while answering a question of how she could keep going in the grueling campaign. She said, “It’s not easy. It’s not easy.”
If you are a woman you should vote for Hillary Clinton because I do. The same thing Oprah should do too.
