Hi, Hillary. You know me. I’m mean, we’re not friends exactly but we’re acquaintances. You were wonderful to me back in l994 when you invited me to the White House. It’s a memory I will treasure always, and you gave it to me. I thank you.
Now, about your Presidential run – if indeed you make it. I’m writing you this letter because I think the topic might figure into your decision-making, or maybe not.
I admit that in 2008 I went with Obama, feeling at the time that he was carrying the real spirit of things yada yada yada. Yeah, well. Anyway.
That was then and this is now.
I want a woman president, really I do. A lot of us do. And yes you’re so qualified, and yes we’ve known you forever, and yes you’d know what to do from Day 1. We all get that.
