An Open Letter to Bill Clinton

My request is that you do not play party politics in your speech tonight at the Democratic National Convention. You said somethings after Barack received the nomination that you might regret, but you sincerely meant them. You naturally wanted your wife to win the nomination.

And now Barack hasn't even reached out with an olive branch of peace by not offering Hillary the VP nod. You are upset. That is understandable.

The Democratic Committee has honored you by inviting you to speak at their convention. But you don't owe them anything. The Democrats didn't elect you in 1992, and again in 1996. The American people voted you into office. You owe them EVERYTHING.

So if you honestly believe that Barack is not the best choice for president--even if you don't think John is either--then please say as much. Your endorsement means a lot, so don't throw it around to a party who tells you to remain loyal.

Be loyal to your country.

Hoping for a Better Future
