...And why it's great for America.
First, of course, we'll have our first female president.
That, alone, is historic and nearly mind-blowing. For all our work and attempts to be modern and forward and open-minded, not only have we never had a woman president but, worse, there are still far too many people in the nation--both male and female--who think we should never have one. The fact that we will is fantastic.
Second, the fact that we'll have two presidents in the White House at the same time is incredible.
I can't think of any other nation that has had such a situation at any time during their history. It happens, of course, naturally, in monarchies that lead their nations but not in Democratically-elected heads of state. It's, again, unprecedented.
And the thing is, not only is it history-making but the nation gets one helluva bargain at the same time.
Like it or not, agree or not, Bill Clinton, as president, was a very successful one in his time in office. Having all that experience and knowledge and his international and political contacts is a huge boon to her presidency and to the nation and our need to work with other nations.
In that way, you could also say, then, with all that experience and information and knowledge, America is getting one incredible political and governmental bargain. We're getting a "two-fer", America, a two-for-one bargain.
Following on the heels of a successful, very successful presidency of one Barack Hussein Obama and the not-to-be-overlooked fact of his being the first Black president, this is, indeed, again, monumental and historic. It's a great day for America.
Look, don't get me wrong, too. It's not like the election is over, far from it. Things could happen. But I'm basing the reason for this post today on the fact that not only does Mrs. Clinton have a lot of support behind her but she also has a great many Republicans on her side because they are strongly and wisely against having their candidate, Donald J. Trump in the White House. It's just fact.
So, congratulations, America. Not only will you be making history for more equality of the sexes but you'll also be getting one heckuva bargain, financially, diplomatically and politically, all three, at least, with Mrs. and Mr. Clinton back in the White House.
It seems Donald Trump's candidacy is actually even likely making the Republican Party weaker.
And check this out. An entire nation doesn't want The Donald anywhere near their country should he, God forbid, become president.
