I could have quit right at the headline. I am so exhausted from people’s demanding perfection of imperfect humans.I love that you just called this out. I was listening to an NPR story about her yesterday and a part of me thought I cannot wait until she takes on Pence. There’s a damn good reason White boys fear Black female excellence. I recall how she scared the shit out of Jeff Sessions. Southern boys know the real power of Black women which is just one reason there is such a concerted effort to control it before it rises. I am quite sure this will get me trolled ,but fuck it. I am beyond delighted to know she may well be at the helm in time. We need imperfect leaders because we are an imperfect society. Immature people want perfect. It doesn’t exist. What we can hope for are folks who have the courage to make challenging decisions for the greater good. She’s flawed. GOOD. So are we all.
There will forever be folks who will be unhappy with politicians. That most assuredly includes me, as there will be societal changes that don’t directly benefit me personally. Well get the fuck over it. Those changes will likely benefit generations coming after me. Understanding the importance of that over selfish gain is part of being a good citizen.
Ever since Harris first showed up, I have been intrigued, excited, and energized. I am five times that now. The Dem ticket just got worth supporting.
