On behalf of Mrs Hillary Clinton

A photograph of Mrs Clinton. I like it. I've now felt fond of her from two cartoons which projected something of her spirit. So I add this picture to my repertoire. She is seriously examining the vegetables at a farmer's market. That's a genuine expression on her face. Imagining someone buying one to eat or cook. I am going to vote for her, and over the next few months, find stories telling about her policies and good aspects of her voting record (as well as bad ones -- her Hawkish military policy), and generallly speaking write blogs on her and our (those who vote for her and those who don't) behalf.

Caught by a Washington Post photographer, found in DC Style section, June 20, 2016

She became a grandmother for the second time this weekend.  Now my grandchildren all have four paws .... .

Meanwhile Trump has now proposed racial profiling. Do you know this poem, reader?
from WW2 Germany by Martin Niemoller: directly relevant to Trump's desire now not just to ban Muslims and other "terrorists" but his proposal to begin profiling people, as well as Ryan and other Republicans endorsement of him:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me

Another friend appreciates it too
Catherine: "I like this photo too. Hillary Clinton doesn't "show" this face often. If you ever get a chance to meet her in person, you will see what I mean."

Me: I gather the big circus atmospheres and public forums in general don't do her justice. Like many another woman, she's learned to keep a guard up -- or she'd have been destroyed long ago.

source of plastered smile
Diane: "I like the photo too. She looks serious, thoughtful and human. I suppose she feels compelled to keep a smile plastered on most of the time so she isn't accused of "relaxed bitch face." Somewhere in the NYT there were stats on the amazingly negative coverage she's received so far: she will be forced through every humiliation to take the prize."

I will do my best to counter these.
