You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
This is not the first time you have seen Hillary Clinton seemingly at her wits end, but she has always risen, always risen, much to the dismay of her adversaries and the delight of her friends.
Hillary Clinton will not give up on you and all she asks of you is that you do not give up on her.
There is a world of difference between being a woman and being an old female. If you’re born a girl, grow up, and live long enough, you can become an old female. But, to become a woman is a serious matter. A woman takes responsibility for the time she takes up and the space she occupies.
Hillary Clinton is a woman. She has been there and done that and has still risen. She is in this race for the long haul. She intends to make a difference in our country.
She is the prayer of every woman and man who long for fair play, healthy families, good schools, and a balanced economy.
She declares she wants to see more smiles in the families, more courtesies between men and women, more honesty in the marketplace. Hillary Clinton intends to help our country to what it can become.
She means to rise.
She means to help our country rise. Don’t give up on her, ever.
In fact, if you help her to rise, you will rise with her and help her make this country a wonderful, wonderful place where every man and every woman can live freely without sanctimonious piety, without crippling fear.

A video to celebrate Women’s History Month and to support Hillary Clinton. It’s also a tribute to women leaders all over the world.
A blue collar Democrat who supports Hillary Clinton encourages her to stay in the race and to not let the left-wing elites (latte liberals, like John Kerry – I can’t believe I had to vote for this elitist idiot in 2004) of the party push her out of the race.
Celebrating Women: A Note from America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) March 21, 2008Posted by koreanpower999 in 2008 Elections, America Ferrera, Barack Obama, Democratic Party, feminism, gender, Hillary Clinton, Women's History Month.
The night Hillary won New Hampshire, I danced around my living room and smiled until I couldn’t smile anymore. But after campaigning with her in Nevada, I felt more than just joy; I felt so much pride in her candidacy. When I was there with Hillary and Chelsea, I saw Hillary’s ability to hear above the noise, and to truly listen. I watched her talk with people, and hear what they were saying. I heard her recount their struggles. I heard in her voice just how much she cared about every person we met. I believe in Hillary. I believe there is no problem too large for her to solve. I believe with my whole heart that Hillary can turn this country around.
This election is too important for any woman or man to stand on the sidelines. All across the country, in places like Ohio and Texas, people are feeling the same excitement I am – and they’re going to the polls for Hillary in astounding numbers. I am excited to be in Pennsylvania this weekend on behalf of the campaign. This campaign isn’t just about Latinas, or just about women; but I’m both, and I know Hillary stands for me.
