1. Healthcare

A big thing for me was her championing healthcare in the 90s and her strong support of the ACA this go around.

In 2008 she advocated for health insurance for all and knew the only way for it to be somewhat feasible was with a mandate. We could argue the ACA, but she essentially knew the bill before it became a bill.

Hillary is very intelligent.

2. I posted the stated purpose for our group

 

because some non supporters seem to feel free to come to OUR GROUP to give criticism here!

If they want to criticize or do Concern trolling , the rest of the DU site is still available and running. This week I notice many newbies coming here to tell us how wrong we are, and etc etc...

Thanks for your response, with HRC's efforts for Healthcare since the 1990's. You can tell that this has always been in the Clintons' minds when they made such an effort when Bill Clinton was our President. That was surprising for me at the time!! It was actually brave at the time! I think this effort might have started Newt Gingrich's and the GOP anti-Clinton agenda, which they never let go.

4. She had a great impact on early childhood education here in Arkansas.


Clinton first got involved in education in her early 20s, when she researched educational opportunities for migrant children during a summer stint at the organization that later became the Children's Defense Fund.

Later, as first lady of Arkansas, she helped her husband—then-Gov. Bill Clinton, one of a handful of Southern governors who were active early on in the standards movement—to help bring rigorous coursework to far-flung corners of the Natural State. She also helped bring HIPPY, an Israeli home-visiting program to Little Rock. These days, HIPPY is in states across the country—its U.S. headquarters are still in Little Rock, though.

5. She has been a strong advocate of so many issues and it continues.

She listens and decides her reaction. She has taken a stand on gun control, we need sensible gun laws. She has been a leader in health care and would protect ACA and make improvements. She understands the need to place more regulations on Wall Street and enforce current regulations.

This is just a few issues, she is a fighter, she will work so hard for us.

6. I very much enjoyed listening to this excerpt of her commencement speech from 1969.

 

It's so ironic to me that she sounds somewhat like Sanders' supporters now, but also still pragmatic and aiming more towards concrete results instead of platitudes.
