Making History

hillaryObamaAll credit to the Democratic Party for another milestone, the nation’s first major party female nominee just after nominating and twice electing our first black president.

No matter one’s view of their politics or policy, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have earned their place in history. After all it wasn’t so long ago their ancestors could not even vote.

“I long to hear that you have declared an independency. And, by the way, in the new code of laws which I suppose it will be necessary for you to make, I desire you would remember the ladies and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.”

And let’s not forget that other milestone in the making: the first ever husband and wife presidencies!

What if ….

A well-known cable giant wanted us to cast its next major event: a movie about the 2016 Presidential Election. Of course we won’t know the outcome until November, but we can get started on the “Primary” behind the scenes stuff now. Oh, & while we’re at it, we can choose the Director, the Screenwriter, the Costume Designer & a person to write the Musical Score. Why not?

Behqdefault creative; big names have drawing power but maybe there’s a lesser known but very talented person you’d like to give a career boost to. Uncover a few hidden gems. The power is in your hands, Trail Mix Moguls, & the budget is unlimited.

Alright Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.
