  • Elena and Paulina's Hillary Blog

    Editor’s Note: The election is over now, but I’d like to highlight another two super-inspirational young people who did so much for Hillary. Although not technically “teens” yet, 12-year-old friends Elena and Paulina worked incredibly hard on Hillary’s campaign in Reno, Nevada. While on the campaign trail, Elena and Paulina kept up a blog, where the two regularly wrote cheery and optimistic posts. I’m so proud of Elena, Paulina, and all other teens and young people who worked tirelessly on Hillary’s behalf. I can't wait till we all can vote!

  • Four Days to the Election

    Four days: that’s all the time we have before this roller-coaster of a campaign comes to an end. Whoever becomes president will face an immense challenge in uniting the country, and I wish the victor the best of the luck in that endeavor. Our divided nation is in serious need of healing—I think everyone can agree on that. Yet, obviously, I have my preferences for which candidate I want to win. That candidate is, with 100% certainty, Hillary Clinton. Let me explain why—not using any attacks on her opponent, just stating the positive case for her.

  • 2016 Election: People vs. Policy

    This election, as everyone knows, is crazy. The Republican primary defied all expectations--a certain real estate dealer became the Republican nominee for president, despite his mimicry of a second-grade bully. Except, of course, second graders do not speak about sexually assaulting women. It's surprising not only to scholars, political theorists, and pundits, but also to students, parents, and Americans.

  • I Supported Bernie, and Now I Support Hillary

    Like many other people my age, I was a big Bernie Sanders supporter. I agreed with his policies, was inspired by his candidacy, and was disillusioned with a system that I felt was corrupt. Since then, I have put deep reflection and thought into the consequences and the stakes of this election. What is the best way of achieving the bold, progressive change that America needs?

  • Why Hillary Stands for Me

    I’ve noticed that in the press the past couple of weeks a lot of the same things: critique of Hillary’s character, the crazy claims Trump makes, Trump’s many shifts in his campaign, a lack of support from Bernie supporters, people saying they might not vote at all, etc. Throughout all this chaos, I feel like we have strayed from what is really important: what Hillary stands for. The issues Hill prioritizes is a huge part of why I think she is the best candidate not just for our country, but also for me. So here are some examples of things Hillary supports that matter to me.

  • Hillary Is For Everyone!

    In my opinion, Hillary Rodham Clinton is one of the most inspirational people in history. Hillary’s campaign is really making me excited for November, especially given who her competition is! As we can all see, Hillary is the only qualified candidate. As a daughter of two immigrants, Hillary is not only a great choice, but she is our only hope.

  • Election Update

    Following the widely praised Democratic National Convention, Hillary took a large lead in both state and national polls over Donald Trump. Yet three weeks later, her advantage has been holding steady, suggesting her edge is more than just a convention bounce. It would be unwise to become complacent, yet there is no denying this simple truth: HIllary Clinton is vastly more likely to win the presidency than Donald Trump.

  • Voting Isn’t the Only Way to Impact this Election

    The 2016 presidential election is a pretty big deal. It’s possible that this election might be the biggest presidential election of our lives. The stakes are HYUGE (pun intended)! This 2016 election is the most important election since the Civil War because Donald Trump is running for president. Yes, Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for president of the United States of America.

  • Dear Bernie Supporters: Hillary vs. Trump is NOT a Lose-Lose

    As an avid Hillary supporter, I have had several discussions with friends about the upcoming presidential election. When I talk about the election with Bernie supporters, there is one statement that often comes up: Clinton versus Trump is a lose-lose situation for our country. Obviously, I find this a completely false statement which I would like to debunk.
