Photos of the Day

From Hillary Clinton's speech in Orlando yesterday, on disability and the economy:

image of Hillary Clinton standing on a box in front of a large, excited crowd; she is holding a microphone and smiling broadly, her hand clasped to her heart
I like how she's standing on a box, so people in the back can see her better. And she can see them.

a young white man with Down Syndrome stands in the crowd with a look of anticipation on his face and sporting a Clinton-Kaine button on his shirt; an older woman, presumably his mother, stands beside him, her arm around his neck, gesturing toward Hillary
Cool button.

Hillary reaches into the crowd to shake the young man's hand; she has a huge grin and he is looking back at her in awe
The look of awe on his face! I would have had the same expression, my friend. ♥

I know I'm the brokenest of broken records, but it continually moves me when I scroll through Hillary Clinton's Flickr account and see diverse crowds who are so enthusiastic for her, and see picture after picture of Clinton excitedly meeting with all kinds of people, from every demographic, of every age and race and gender and sexuality and ability and class and occupation...

Her campaign looks like America.
