    Kennedys for Clinton

    She stands for Democrats and for the nation, these family members say.

    By Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Kerry Kennedy

    From the Web, January 30, 2008

    This is a wonderful year for Democrats. Our party is blessed with the most impressive array of primary candidates in modern history. All would make superb presidents.

    By now you may have read or heard that our cousin, Caroline Kennedy, and our uncle, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, have come out in favor of Sen. Barack Obama. We, however, are supporting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton because we believe that she is the strongest candidate for our party and our country.

    While talk of unity and compromise are inspiring to a nation wary of divisiveness, America stands at a historic crossroads where real issues divide our political landscapes. Democrats believe that America should not be torturing people, eavesdropping on our citizens or imprisoning them without habeas corpus or other constitutional rights. We should not be an imperial power. We need healthcare for all and a clean, safe environment.

    The loftiest poetry will not solve these issues. We need a president willing to engage in a fistfight to safeguard and restore our national virtues.

    We have worked with Hillary Clinton for 15 years (and in Kathleen’s case, 25 years) and witnessed the power and depth of her convictions firsthand. We’ve seen her formidable work ethic, courage in the face of adversity and her dignity and clear head in crisis. We’ve also seen her two-fisted willingness to enter the brawl when America’s principles are challenged. Her measured rhetoric, political savvy and pragmatism shield the heart of our nation’s most determined and most democratic warrior.

    She has been an uncompromising and loyal ally for each of us in our battles to protect the environment and to promote human rights around the world and juvenile justice in America. Hillary is a problem-solver, listening to people and then achieving solutions by changing attitudes.

    Her transformational leadership was on display when she ran for the Senate seat in New York that had been held by our father, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. She faced rabid, heavily funded attacks from the far right and the challenge of prevailing in traditionally Republican upstate New York. Traveling with her, we watched admiringly as she persuasively articulated an inspiring and unifying vision rooted in American values and history. Then, through patience, hard work, leadership and political acumen, she transformed many of those rock-solid conservative counties into solid Democratic strongholds.

    We look forward to working beside her in the general election as she uses those same talents to change once rigid opinions and political affiliations across the nation.

    Like our father, Hillary has devoted her life to embracing and including those on the bottom rung of society’s ladder — giving voice to the alienated and disenfranchised and working to alleviate poverty and injustice, while urging that we cannot advance ourselves as a nation by leaving our poorer brothers and sisters behind.

    She’s been an equally effective champion for human rights and for women’s rights, a worldwide cause that will profit enormously by her elevation to the presidency. She has worked for peace in Northern Ireland and fought to bridge religious, racial and ethnic divides from Bosnia to the Middle East to South Africa. She has shown a rare understanding that American values can only be exported by moral leadership, by a strong home economy and by a detailed understanding of the history and cultural backdrops of the nations we engage.

    She understands, as our current administration does not, the uses of power. The world, she says, is hungry for U.S. leadership but will not accept our bullying. She knows the difference and will reestablish America’s lost prestige and moral authority.

    Hillary Clinton’s political career has been centered in comforting the afflicted, afflicting the comfortable and reminding Americans what it means to be American. As a young lawyer, she focused on children’s issues and legal aid. As first lady of Arkansas, she brought healthcare to rural areas and helped reform the state’s lagging education system.

    As first lady, she courageously took on healthcare reform. When a massive propaganda campaign by Big Pharma and the radical right derailed her efforts, she didn’t give up. She helped create the nationally acclaimed Children’s Health Insurance Program. That kind of persistence in pursuit of our highest ideals is the brand of leadership America now requires. Inspirational leadership comes in many forms.

    Seldom has history confronted America with such daunting challenges: a catastrophic foreign policy that has cost us our international leadership and aggravated the threat of terror; a misbegotten war that is squandering precious American lives and treasure; a healthcare system that leaves millions of Americans without coverage; irresponsible corporate power that is corroding our democracy and outsourcing our jobs, aggravating global warming and other environmental crises and reducing our economy to shambles.

    We need a leader who is battle-tested, resilient and sure-footed on the shifting landscapes of domestic and foreign policy. Hillary Clinton will move our country forward while promoting its noblest ideals.

    Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is the former lieutenant governor of Maryland, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is an environmental advocate and Kerry Kennedy is a human rights activist.

  2. Amen! I vouch for Hillary! Go, Hillary, go!!

  3. Those who endorse Hillary will be very sorry. You just wait and see.

  4. Well, I am all for a woman for President if she’s qualified BUT not this one!

  5. BRAVO! Well done said!

    Hillary 4 Prez!

  6. Personally, I respect your observation on Hillary and Obama. For more than 30 years, I did vote for Democrat Prez, Republican Prez and Reform Party Prez.

    Well, I cannot vote for Hillary because I knew her past background since 1992. I began to realize that you are bright and young guy. That’s cool. Anyway, I respect your vote.

    When Bill Clinton became prez on Jan 1993, he appointed Hillary as chairperson of the Health Care bill committee ( I can’t remember what name of it ). Many leaders of health insurance and medical-related companies were involved in the closed-public committee with Hillary but unfortunately, somehow the secret meeting went into chaos when many medical-related leaders went to walk out with their protests. Many
    senators went with them instead of supporting Hillary. Today many media reporters want to investigate Hillary’s past Health Care fiasco case at the Prez Clinton Library in Little Rock but that library refused to open the case for them but it has been tightly kept in secret. What’s about Whitewater loan scam ? Travelgate? How can I trust her and even worse, Bill?

    I knew that Prez Bush is not good uniter that often caused dividing among the Democrats and Repubulicans debating over many issues.

    However, do you think that Hillary is the best uniter? No, I don’t think so.
    I believe that Hillary will be the worst polarizing president and will never get any bills passed she wants.

    I am very impressed with Obama’s intelligence and charisma like JFK did in 1960.
    Also, I won’t be surprised that many Obama Republicans will be joined with Democrats. It happened in 1980, many Reagan Democrats joined with Republicans together in order to defeat incumbent Prez Carter.

    Many Americans including myself knew that Hillary has been very difficult time how to use an effective diplomacy with her many enemies (both Democrat and Republican senators). Yes, Hillary said that she will plan to have Health Care meeting with many leaders together again. How?

  7. Yes, Mrs. Clinton have my supports! Thanks

  8. Hello Tar,
    I am thinking about voting her, too!
