Hillary visited a senior center in Compton, California today and held a press gaggle in the process. Asked about clinching, she said she wanted to "wait and see where we are after tomorrow." She did respond to a question about the history.
Many times she said, she has seen
women in tears upon or just after meeting her. We have seen accounts
at the Facebook groups, too, from women who have been to her events and
recount breaking down as Hillary left and seeing others around them also
weeping. Hillary is very aware of the history factor. She knows, but
she does not want to claim the history prematurely. That will not stop
me from picking up some champagne on the way home from the polls
tomorrow. I have been ready for her to do this for a very long time.
Just one day past one of the saddest anniversaries of my life when I lost my candidate
who held so much promise on June 6, 1968, I will see the only candidate
who has ever replaced him in my heart clinch the nomination. Yes, I
probably will shed a tear, and I will be ready to toast her and us! I
think Bobby Kennedy will be looking down and smiling. Sláinte!
