Hillary Video

Here's the video shown last night to introduce Hillary. A proper video, unlike the Obama piece the night before, filled with inspiration, history and purpose.

It places Hillary at the head of the movement for equality for women, taking her ambition and wrapping it in the attractive paper of serving others. On a smaller level, it makes Hillary a cog in a family wheel, each generation working to empower the next - in this case, launching the intriguing sub-plot of Chelsea as Hillary's successor.

Hats off to the producers of this piece. While not of Oscar quality, in contrast to the Ken Burns piece from Monday night, this was genius. Of course, the Hillary production team had the advantage of working for a candidate who has experience to sift mine.
