Hallelujah, we lived to see the day — as Hillary Clinton spoke with grace to claim her place in American history. Nothing’s over yet, but as the Democratic Party standard-bearer, Clinton is riding high. And she worked for it.
And by we I mean American women here now in 2016, voters from 18 to 98. Heck, count girls and babies; they inherit the new world being born and they can campaign, too. April brings Hillary Clinton as the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. How sweet it is. A victory from sea to shining sea. Long time coming.
Wilson’s shameful record on race is now under serious scrutiny at his alma mater, Princeton University. Yet little has been said on Wilson’s fierce opposition to women as equal citizens, even as the suffrage movement’s winds blew outside his Oval Office.
If only Hillary Clinton and Alice Paul could have a cup of coffee. A major figure in American history, suffrage champion Paul was a political strategist with few equals. Her winning blueprint for social change gives Clinton the best way forward.
