News Item:  The just ended Democratic convention was devoted to displaying the
softer side of Hillary Clinton.

When you used to call her Hilla the Hun, was she really that ferocious with everyone?

Oh, she's a tiger all right.  But it's for causes like pre-school programs and children's
healthcare.  She's always worked for children you know, from when she got out of law
school.  And let me tell you something:  I've always thought of her as hon spelled
H-O-N, with an 'o' not a 'u'.  She's been my honey every since that day in the Law
School Library when she walked across towards me ...

And let me add my memories.  She always read "Goodnight Moon" to me and
whenever she was away on a trip she would write little notes for each day she was
gone.  Is that thoughtful or what?

You know we the Democrats are the party of the future, the party of your children
and grandchildren.  We want them to have a better future.  We want to focus on the
people, their well-being, their jobs, their healthcare ...

Their education loans strangling the young?

We are working on that ...

No controls with any teeth to prevent a repeat of 2008?

Of course we have Dodd-Frank, and we'll keep a tight rein unlike the Republicans.

You mean Goldman-Sachs and the other banks have been wasting their money?

Money never swayed any votes ...
