Morning Tuv R,
I’m up early with breaking news: Hillary is taking the Iowa caucuses from Bernie in a squeaker and the Donald was toppled by Ted Cruz, with Marco finishing a strong 3rd.
Exciting, don’t you think? I’m breathing again with the Donald forced to humble himself-LOSER!!!
The first presidential campaign without you here to weigh in, so I’m going to keep you updated but I know where you would be standing. Bernie for you is not Barack ,and I’m pretty sure that you would be standing with Hillary. We stand together in reality.
Yes, I love Bernie but I don’t see him as a viable candidate in a national campaign and I don’t think he is prepared for it. But it was tense last night when I dined with Hilda and Marie-France, both now turned off to Hillary. I took them on but they were emotional and I didn’t have enough energy. I took the high road.
But I’m excited with political distraction and it’s important to have this battle for Obama’s successor. I’m remembering our commitment to Barack in both elections when we campaigned for me in marches and Nyack phone banks. Our political lives were always in motion. Celebrating his inauguration with him in DC.
I’m up at 4:30 for both of us-watching, writing…
Yes, I did get some sleep but I couldn’t stay asleep with unsettled dreams. It’s a great time to be alive. Wish you were!
