I understand that the heat wave has broken for some of you lucky Jackals in the upper midwest, but here north of Boston, we’re still trying to breath warm steam. Not to knock other peoples’ lifestyle choices, but triple-digit heat indexes are among the reasons I chose to move to Massachusetts instead of Florida!
Hot takes, on the other hand:
HRC was Honored In Atlanta with the "Realizing The Dream Award" at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. She was introduced as “my president.” @HillaryClinton laughed and said “From your lips to God’s ears.” At the end of her speech the crowd cheered "RUN HILLARY RUN" pic.twitter.com/C9nSDfyEAJ

It’s actually pretty amazing, has a losing candidate ever been this right about their opponent? Did John McCain say Obama would get Bin Laden and bail out the auto industry? https://t.co/Ev6RZL5H3j

The crowd of 800 roared when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took the stage Friday at the Young Democrats of America’s national convention in Indianapolis.
Pelosi spoke for about 20 minutes, drawing standing ovations multiple times, including for the House’s likely futile passage of a $15 minimum wage bill, defending abortion rights, for saying Democrats would hold President Donald Trump accountable and for saying Democrats would sweep the House, Senate and White House in the 2020 elections…
Whatever its flaws, she said, she believes there is no institution in this nation that has come up with better ideas, more creative thinking and been more willing to meet challenges than the Democratic Party.
She noted that 60 percent of House Democrats are women, people of color or part of the LGBTQ community.
“That’s a beautiful thing,” she said. “The beauty is in the mix. Our diversity is our strength. Our unity is our power.”…
“We do understand the urgency of the challenge to this country that we love … and to the Constitution,” she said, suggesting Democrats must defend against “those who would degrade our beautiful land from sea to shining sea, those who would disrespect newcomers to our country and those who would undermine our values.” …
Maybe, just maybe, the future *is* female…
