Congratulations Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

You truly are a woman in charge. I so wanted you to win the Presidential nomination. And then, when you didn't, my heart and soul was handed over to Barack. And then he won and I was beyond over-the-moon happy, but I did not forget you. I thought about you often and wondered how you were feeling; how were you handling the events - the historical events. Were you ranting, complaining, crying, disappointed...did you talk about this; sharing your sorrow - or did you internalize it? Perhaps I'm wrong. Perhaps you were planning your next opportunity to serve the people. You weren't down. You were still moving 'up'. And now, I am so pleased for you and for the world. You deserve this and I do believe that, for you, the best is yet to come. Thank You Hillary. We are so very proud of you.
