Clams are yummy, yummy summertime fun food.
Hillary fought for that bill until the very end. I remember organizing a big meeting for progressive leaders close to the end, and I have never seen her fighting spirit better, as she rallied advocates to keep fighting the good fight. When the bill finally died, she immediately started talking to Teddy Kennedy and other congressional leaders about what we could do to at least get children covered, and the eventual result was the CHIP program, which today covers 8 million kids.
This election is a choice between the most openly bigoted man to run for president since the early 1900s and a woman who has genuinely fought on behalf of progressive values her entire life. With our enthusiastic support, we could help her create a wave election that will decimate Trumpism for a long time to come, and give our ideas a genuine chance to become policy. We need to get to work.
Hillary Clinton basically helped save this guys life.
Apparently, in light of the Democratic National Convention, in which Hillary Clinton formally became the Democratic Partys nominee for president, James Grissom decided to share his story about his experience with Hillary, and his story is honestly incredible if its even half true.
Like so many others in this election, Grissom was feeling the Bern. For many Democrats, young and old, Bernie Sanders ideas felt necessary and radical a breath of fresh air.
But, Grissom explained, theres a difference between someone who says he or she will show up and get it done and someone who has always shown up to get it done.
I thought this story was great. That's the Hillary I know. It's also great because it highlights the fact that Planned Parenthood offers so much more than many people realize.
and to start getting pumped about our Democratic Convention.
An apology has been issued. Let's move on.
We're having the party tomorrow.
Then she'll be off to college in a month.
It seems very clear to me that Hillary is going to go full throttle in tackling this. Kaine is a solid pick in this fight.
I'm thrilled to share this news: I've chosen Tim Kaine as my running mate.
Tim is a lifelong fighter for progressive causes and one of the most qualified vice presidential candidates in our nation's history.
But his credentials alone aren't why I asked him to run alongside me.
Like me, Tim grew up in the Midwest. During law school, he too took an unconventional path -- he took time off and went to Honduras to work with missionaries, practicing both his faith and his Spanish.
When he returned to the states and graduated from Harvard Law, he could have done anything. But instead of going to some big corporate firm, he chose to fight housing discrimination as a civil rights lawyer in Richmond. He and his wife joined a church, built a home centered around their faith, and raised three beautiful children. Then, after 17 years of practicing law, Tim ran for city council -- and won.
Tim says his experience on city council taught him everything he knows about politics. To the people in Richmond, an underfunded school wasn't a Democratic or Republican problem. It was simply a problem that needed fixing, and his constituents were counting on him to solve it. So Tim would do it. He'd roll up his sleeves and get the job done, no matter what.
Hes a man of relentless optimism who believes no problem is unsolvable if you're willing to put in the work. That commitment to delivering results has stayed with him throughout his decades-long career as a public servant. So I could give you a laundry list of things he went on to accomplish -- as mayor of Richmond, governor of Virginia, and in the United States Senate.
But this is whats important: Tim has never taken a job for the glory or the title. He's the same person whether the cameras are on or off. He's sincerely motivated by the belief that you can make a difference in people's lives through public service.
That quality comes through in every interaction. To know Tim is to love him. When I was talking to people about this decision, I couldn't find anyone -- Democrat or Republican -- who had a bad thing to say about him. From his staff over the last 20 years to his colleagues in the Senate, Tim's beloved.
He is a genuinely nice person, but Tim is no one's punching bag. He will fight tooth and nail for American families, and he'll be a dogged fighter in our campaign against Donald Trump and Mike Pence.
Karen, I want you to know that I didnt make this decision lightly.
Ive had the privilege of seeing two presidents and two vice presidents up close. I want a vice president who can be my partner in bringing this country together. I want someone who will be able to give me their best advice, look me in the eye, and tell me they disagree with me when they do.
But what matters most is a simple test thats not so simple to meet: whether the person could step in at a moments notice and serve as president.
I have no doubt that Tim can do the job.
I want him by my side on the trail and in the White House.
Not my personal favorite, but I can understand why she chose him.
Our convention is going to rock. GOTV and go Clinton/Kaine
My feeling is it will indeed be Elizabeth Warren. Up til now I thought would be Xavier Becerra, but for some reason today I think it will be Senator Warren.
