For a new leader of the free world – Hillary Clinton

For a new leader of the free world – Hillary Clinton

Churchill said it is better to be an optimist – there’s no point in being anything else.

Tonight I believe we will have a new leader of the free world, and I hope passionately – as a human being and as a long-time “Green Growth” advocate – that it is Hillary Clinton.

There are three reasons why:

·       First – the alternative is to believe that the American dream of democracy and decency will be replaced by a new kind of dictatorship and divisiveness.

·       Second – because as a woman she will signal gender equality in the most powerful and influential job on the planet.

·       Third – because climate change is existential, and she’s a believer and he’s a denier. And the clock is ticking louder on extreme global warming.

That’s all but I think it’s enough.
