I really think she is the embodiment of the future of the Democratic Party. I think as her support continues to grow, she’ll be in one of those situations a decade or so down the line as you said where it would be illogical to not run for President because the support in polling will be so strong. She hasn’t even been in office for a year, and she already has more political clout and has done more to shift the Overton window than many of the other Democrats who have been there for years. I’m not meaning to downplay their service to their country, but it’s just a fact that she is evolving in to a force, and rapidly. But as you said, I am very, very nervous about what could happen to her. We can only continue to support her, and be vigilant of the rhetoric that we see towards her.
