Lauren Besser

I’ve been ready for a progressive woman to become president since 2000; and Hillary isn’t my first choice either, but I’m still supporting her. Wholeheartedly, too. In my lifetime no candidate I’ve supported for any office has ever mirrored my own positions. Bernie comes closest, but I’m done with white men running things. Hillary’s nomination and election would, I’m sure, result in more women rising to positions of power and influence than would Bernie’s; and when that happens, women like Elizabeth Warren and Michelle Obama will enter politics and win and lead. So, Hillary. This year.
