I have just learned that Hillary Clinton is running for President in 2008! I am elated with the prospect of another Clinton in the White House. I decided to pay her official website a visit and after a wonderful welcome message I clicked to the blog. It asked me if I wanted to write the first post. This was quite an exciting prospect and I knew it was not one to be taken lightly. I would imagine they are screening posts and deciding which on to use as the first. I have taken the chance and below is my letter to Mrs. Clinton.
Dear Mrs. Clinton,
Congratulations on your decision to run for presidency in 2008. I am an American who lives in England but I make sure I always keep up to date with American and World politics. I just watched an interview with your husband on Fox from September last year and it reminded me how much better America was when he was in the White House.
I believe you have what it takes to restore the world’s faith in America. I hate feeling that as an American abroad that I have to worry not to voice my opinions too loudly as my accent might be recognized as similar to that of President Bush, a man who the world recognizes as causing most of our problems.
I look forward to a day when we as Americans can feel totally proud of what our country is doing at home and on foreign soil. I look forward to a day when America can join the world’s fight to save the planet from destruction by depletion of fossil fuels and not just brush it aside as unimportant and irrelevant.
I think electing you as the next President is in America’s and the World’s best interest and I only wish the change of command could be a little sooner.
Best of luck in your campaign.
