Hillary did a great job raising a daughter without exploiting her for campaign gains.
I do hope, for the good of the party, that Michelle will stop bashing Hillary as somehow not 'feminine' enough.
What is a better example of how well-rounded Hillary is (note we don't make that same demand of our male public figures) than her lovely, kind daughter.

Hillary has already stated she will pull our troops out of Iraq.
She needs to say so more forcefully.
What a great time to do it--on Mother's Day--A PACIFISTS' HOLIDAY!

Mother's Day Proclamation - 1870
by Julia Ward Howe

Arise then...women of this day!
Arise, all women who have hearts!
Whether your baptism be of water or of tears!
Say firmly:
"We will not have questions answered by irrelevant agencies,
Our husbands will not come to us, reeking with carnage,
For caresses and applause.
Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.
We, the women of one country,
Will be too tender of those of another country
To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs."

From the voice of a devastated Earth a voice goes up with
Our own. It says: "Disarm! Disarm!
The sword of murder is not the balance of justice."
Blood does not wipe our dishonor,
Nor violence indicate possession.
As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil
At the summons of war,
Let women now leave all that may be left of home
For a great and earnest day of counsel.
Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.
Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means
Whereby the great human family can live in peace...
Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar,
But of God -
In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask
That a general congress of women without limit of nationality,
May be appointed and held at someplace deemed most convenient
And the earliest period consistent with its objects,
To promote the alliance of the different nationalities,
The amicable settlement of international questions,
The great and general interests of peace.

CHELSEA TELL YOUR MOM TO STOP MAKING A FOOL OF HER SELF!
TELL HER TO KEEP HER DIGNITY, EVEN JOE LOUIS LOST A FIGHT!
I'M REALLY SURPRISED AT BILL CLINTON, TO LET HIS WIFE REMAIN IN
THE RACE LIKE THIS IS A TERRIBLE DECISION!

CHELSEA TELL YOUR MAMA TO VOTE FOR OBAMA! IT'S OVER FOR HER!
