My action to become an American citizen was inspired by Hillary Rodham Clinton running for president. I am inspired by her like others are inspired by Barack Obama, and this is ok. I am inspired by Hillary Rodham Clinton because she doesn't say what she thinks I want to hear she says what I "need" to hear. She points to what is broken and she tries to fix it. I don't want to be placated, I am old enough to get my feelings hurt, so go ahead. At the end of the day I don't have to like you, but I do have to trust you as my President, as my elected official, as my Commander-in-Chief.
My faith is not in Hillary Clinton its in America.
My trust, however, is in Hillary Rodham Clinton. I trust Hillary Rodham Clinton to do what is right for this country. And its ok if you disagree, because that is the beauty of this country, you have the right to disagree.
I am sorry she is not the president elect, but I know she will do a great job as Secretary of State.
