Both of these intelligent, young, savvy women are just what our current moribund and fraught democracy need. They are high energy troublemakers who see our corrupt and ineffectual political establishment for the dangerous fraud that it is and joyfully and effectively call out the liars, hypocrites and empty suits who make up our governing class. God bless them.
That their politics and party affiliations are different is healthy and, really, beside the point. We already know we’re going to end up with a tired and tiresome white, male, septuagenarian as president. The two women, on the other hand, both represent fundamental changes to the way America runs and to the way a government of, by and for the people actually advances the lives of its citizenry. I hope they both win in November and lead the debate about America’s future.
