Hillabern Clinders, 2016

This week on Mom.me, I tried to pick a candidate and finally settled on Hillabern Clinders.

Depending on the day of the week, I am full-throttle in support of Hillary. I mean, Bernie. I mean, Hillary. I mean, Bernie. I mean...


I recently took the "I side with quiz" and sided 96% with Bernie Sanders. I don't think I've ever sided 96% with anything in my entire life so this came as a humbling blow that Hillary, who I have rallied behind in my mind and soul since the beginning, may not be the one. 

And yet. 

No! I mean, YES! I mean, No!

....As the LEADER of our nation...  It matters what you look like and how you carry yourself and what kind of presence you command. It matters how you are perceived and whether you represent your country physically as well as politically, and between the two of them, I see Hillary as the more representative representative. I just do....

Do I agree with all of Hill's politics? No. Is she a part of the same political machine I want to rally against? Yes. But I also think she is fearless and inspiring. I think she is pro-woman and pro-child and pro-education reform. I think she is pro gun-control and pro prison-reform and I think she can and will fight the good fight. And, yes, I would be lying if I didn't admit that her being a woman has a lot to do with why I support her. Her stance on women's issues is crucial in a male-dominated Washington. It is time for a woman to lead this country and I believe that Hillary has what it takes to do it. I just wish she was more like Bern on all the issues...
