She Did What She Needed to Do...

... and did it well.

Hillary's speech at the convention tonight brought me right back to the tears I felt when she officially dropped out of the race. I voted for Barack Obama in the primary and I have volunteered at his office since then. But, as a woman close to her age, who has dealt with some overt discrimination because of my gender, the primary race has been a huge bag of mixed feelings for me. So, it was hard to watch and, at the same time, I admired her for putting her own personal feelings aside and doing what needed to be done. I just hope she convinced those supporters of her who have been threatening to throw their votes away.
