I’m Drinking Soothing Tea And Reflecting On My Love For Senator Clinton

I’m going to drink some soothing tea today and find my way to loving everybody on the left and center-left side of the aisle for the election ahead.

Not any kind of narcotic tea. Just some nice soothing tea.

See my tea kettle below? It is brewing up the tea.

My love includes Senator Hillary Clinton of New York.

Yesterday I wrote I was opposed to Senator Clinton being selected as the running mate.

But you know–when I sit here and reflect on the miracle of a person of color standing so close to winning the White House, I find I have no animosity.  

I’m for whatever the program is that wins the election.

This is the only path. It’s the course that forces on everyone, the discipline and humanity needed to win the election and make our nation better. 

Even the most violent volcano subsides in time.

Look at the picture below of Vesuvius and Naples today.

See the harmony and excellence you get once the tumult is over.

I once had the chance to visit Naples. My family came from Naples 100 years ago, so being in Naples was like a visit to the homeland.

Finding reconcilation and love is our homeland in this election.  

Below you see a picture of some tea leaves.

I’m reading these leaves and seeing a much better day ahead.

Let’s start now to make these better days.

  1. It is time for a nice relaxing drink after all the anxiety of this primary season.
    I understand the anti-energy drink called Drank is available in Houston.

  2. I think I need to try some of that tea. 🙂 I think it would be a tactical error for Obama to put Hillary on the ticket with him, mainly because I have this nightmare image in my mind of the Republican 527’s running ads with clips of some of the things Hillary said about Obama, like McCain being more qualified than him to be commander in chief. And I don’t think he needs to deal with the headache of Bill Clinton and what he might say.

    It’s probably moot, because Obama has said that Hillary and Bill would both have to be fully vetted for her to be on his short list, and Bill is already nixing the idea of having to identify the donors to his presidential library.

    All that said, I am in favor of peace and harmony just like you. Whatever gets us there, I’m for.

  3. Carsick—Anti-energy? Well I see a lot of kids drinking Red Bull. Maybe an anti-energy drink is how they come down.

    Big Tex—We just need to move ahead. I’m for, within limits of course, whatever the program is.

  4. I am happy for his win. i hope he is not full of hope and shit and can get something done. Voters need to look at both houses and elect some folks in that will help him get things done for the avg. person that lives here. education and healthcare reform are the two most important to me. if we have people that are healthier and more educated the rest will fall in place.

  5. I’m all for reconciliation but I think it would be bad idea to put her on the ticket. After this campaign and all that was said and done to tear him down, I don’t see how Obama could ever really trust her in that spot. And that’s what you need as a VP.

  6. Brady—I hope he is not full of it as well. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to see after November.

    DP—Well—I don’t know that JFK ever trusted LBJ. Sometimes you just do what you have to do.

    Speaking of LBJ, reading about Obama corralling Lieberman to the side of the Senate floor reminded me (and others, apparently)of this:

  8. Senator Green is the person Green Airport in Rhode Island is named after.

    I think Obama is something of a hard ass really. I don’t think he is fooling around.
