I didn’t start out this election being a Hilary fan.
I was going to vote for her, sure, and I liked her fine, but I wasn’t a huge partisan.
Oh, but now.
Now, I’m with her.
I am going to vote for the smartest girl in the room.
I am voting for the woman who has been forced to play down to men around her her entire life.
I am voting for competence, skill, and intelligence.
I am voting for the woman who has to wear body armor against the double threat of presidential assassination and plain-old murderous misogyny.
I am voting for the woman who smiled and was polite for fifty years, for the woman who cuts deals and makes compromises, for the woman who knows how to win.
I am specifically and explicitly voting *against* the racist rapist, sure.
But I am also voting *for* Hilary Clinton.
