She's Almost Done It!

On Satuday, Hillary Clinton handily won the US Virgin Islands caucuses on Saturday, taking all 7 pledged delegates.

On Sunday, she handily won the Puerto Rico primary, picking up 35 additional pledged delegates.

What this means (apart from the fact that she's won every US territory in this primary!) is that Clinton will clinch the nomination on Tuesday in New Jersey, before the polls even close in California.

It will happen on the 8th anniversary of her "18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling" speech. How perfect is that?

Last night, while I was saying the words "first woman nominee for president" to Iain, I just burst out crying. (LOL!) Not dainty, choked up, charming crying, either. Big, blubby, sobbing, wiping-snot-on-my-sleeve kind of crying!

Y'all, we are one day away from the first woman being nominated by one of the major parties for the presidency. One day.

It's been two hundred and twenty-seven years. And we are one day away.
