Today’s Daily Create from DS 106 is “Combine Three Great Past Leaders into One- Who is it and what are their combined characteristics?”
In 2016, I dream of electing a powerful woman for president: Eleanor Clinton-Stowe. She will use the tea bag as her personal iconography, but it will have a totally different meaning than the sad ol bad ol soggy ol Tea Bag Party of yore.
First of all, like Hillary Clinton, she will show what she’s willing to fight for when she’ll even fight her friends, as Clinton did in her memorable battle with Barack Obama for the presidential nomination. That fight made her stronger, and she went on to become Obama’s exemplary Secretary of State.
Like Harriet Beecher Stowe, American abolitionist and author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Madame President will never give up on her liberal agenda, for she will know that is just the place and time the tide will turn.
We will know this new president by a sign in the sky set forth by Eleanor Roosevelt, who said, “A woman is like a tea bag; you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.”
