Today, whilst running on the treadmill (hilarious, yes I know) I had a revelation.

Of course Hillary can't quit. She can't quit because of ME. See I've depressed about the fact that I think she's lost the nomination and I've been wondering how much her continuing to run is hurting the chances of the White House being blue this time next year. And I've been annoyed about it.

But then today, it suddenly made sense! Here she is, the very first woman to be in serious running for the President of the United States of America. The first woman to go all the way - to prove that women can do *anything*. And so ... she carries with her a lot of hope and a lot of expectation. And so *of course* she can't quit before the end - she can't go home just cause a bunch of people tell her she can't win. She *has* to take this all the way to the bitter end.

She *has* to - for me, for you and for all our granddaughters.

(I just kinda wish it was over already)
