    The ONLY reason she was on that stage on Tuesday was because
    of who she was married to, not for anything she has done.

    We love you Hillary. You will do a great job. Can't wait to vote for you in 2016. You are a true inspiration. My grandmother would be so happy right now. Obama made a great choice. Democrats rule.

    I think that Hillary was a good choice, but it will be an interesting first few months where the Obama/Biden/Clinton trifecta are still trying to find their groove. Ultimately, I think they will all find their strides and be okay, but still interesting in the meantime.
