Because this election is important. I believe in being informed. And what we've seen far too much already, and it's only going to get worse, is an election roiled by fear, hearsay, projection and illusion. "I heard Hillary speak yesterday and was absolutely blown away by her passion, intelligence, depth of experience and profound competence. And then I got to sit down and talk with her, and felt her humanity as a mother and working woman, and, most importantly, a woman who is genuinely dedicated to the ideals and values of the people of this country. "Please. Let's focus. And get back to those ideals. Because we are all so fortunate to live in the United States and with that comes a responsibility. Take this election seriously. Get the facts. And remember the greatness of this country. We are a country of intelligence and compassion, not fear and bullying. This is a crucial time for us to reclaim that for ourselves.
