Votes for Women!

I know most of you aren't watching or listening, but last night Hillary Clinton gave an amazing speech at the Democratic National Convention. She was funny, and touching, and tough, and proud, and perfect. I listened on the radio and had tears in my eyes more than once.

I love this woman. And although I was not in favor of her running for president (I just think people who dislike her do so so strongly that it would be insurmountable in a general election), last night I felt a strong sense of having missed out on something great here.

Here's to the 18 million cracks she put in the ceiling.

Our daughters' daughters' will adore us.
And they'll sing in grateful chorus:
Well done! Sister Suffragettes!

Now get along you two.

I keep singing Mary Poppins.

But Duchess, I never didn't love her. I just love Barack more. Can we still be BFF?

And yes you did tell me so.

We can still be BFF - I just felt I had to say - I told you so!

Oh great, now I have that song stuck in my head.

Though we adore men individually, we agree that as a group they're rather stupid.
