Hillary Clinton: Still Hiking!

Originally this was posted the Friday after Thanksgiving - 11/25.  I took it down when the mom asked me to since she had posted the picture on a "secret Facebook group" where sharing pictures is verboten.  I had not taken the picture from there.  I had found it in Twitter.  Someone I knew had shared it.
 Since then, however, as is always the case when pics are shared on social media, the picture has made it to the big time.  HuffPo got a hold of it.  So, since it is all now officially out there in the media  - here you go!
The bonus is that everything old is new again.  Hillary's pretty sweater is not new.  Don't we all want to be able to wear what we bought a few decades ago?  Go Hillary!

Hillary Clinton Has Been Wearing This Fleece For 21 Years

And they say she isn’t relatable.


A few lucky people hiking in the woods of upstate New York have recently bumped into Hillary Clinton and posted photos to social media. And according to the ever-lurking eyes of Twitter, the fleece Clinton wears to hike in those woods has been in her wardrobe rotation for the past 21 years.
Of the many photos people have posted over the past few weeks, one shows Clinton in a fleece your normcore dreams are made of.

Since that post, the internet has slowly but surely identified it as the same fleece she wore on a trip to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming with Bill in 1995.

So this hiking post is back, altered, revised, and even better!  Lesson to be learned: If you do not want the content all over the interwebs, don't post it.  The interest here is about Hillary and her sweater.
And to the millions of volunteers, community leaders, activists and union organizers who knocked on doors, talked to neighbors, posted on Facebook, even in secret, private Facebook sites – I want everybody coming out .  from behind that and make sure your voices are heard going forward.
Emphasis there is mine. 
I do not understand these secret groups, especially when they allow members to add friends willy-nilly without a background check - and you trust that?  You all need to get some armor subito. You need to step up. How do you know the 4 millionth member is not a Trump troll  - oh wait. A Trump patrol. Remember this flag?


It's time to come out of the woods!
