I recently befriended a woman from Nacogdoches, Texas. Her ex-husband lives in Monroe, Louisiana. My friend describes her ex-husband as a "hick" and "country boy". Her ex-husband is a Republican that once hated Bill and Hillary Clinton with a passion. She had been wanting to ask him whom he was planning to vote. She finally asked him and he paused and said, "I'm voting for Hillary". She nearly fell out her chair and chocked on water she was drinking. She asked, "Why? You hate the Clintons". He said, "Hillary's a good woman and she cares about 'us'. She has the experience needed to get us out of this mess Bush put us in." She asked, "What about McCain?" He said, "He's too old and too pro-war." He added, "I just can't vote for Obama. He's only been in the Senate for a few years. He doesn't have the experience needed to solve America's problems".
Hillary's changing minds one by one. This story gives me hope that Hillary is 44.
