COMMENTARY: Rep. Maxine Waters
By Rep. Maxine Waters
Published January 30, 2008

All of my life I have been dedicated to supporting individuals who are committed to concrete proposals and projects aimed at solving problems, creating a new direction for our country, and helping people. Senator Hillary Clinton is that type of individual. Hillary Clinton is a no-nonsense, articulate and experienced public policy maker who has demonstrated the ability to solve real problems.

I believe that Hillary Clinton has the knowledge and the experience to understand the needs of not only my constituents, but the needs of all Americans. It is extremely important to people who need assistance from their government that they have access to the decision makers so they may articulate their concerns and have them addressed. She has traveled this country witnessing the plight of the underserved in rural America, she is on a first name basis with community leaders in our urban centers, and she has sat with the soccer moms in suburban America.

Many of the people that I represent are dying from preventable diseases such as Diabetes, HIV/AIDS and Cancer. The Hillary Clinton health care plan is the best example of a well thought through universal health care proposal designed to cover ALL Americans. Similarly, Senator Clinton’s proposals on education, the economy, housing, the environment and foreign affairs are understandable, believable and achievable.

The Democratic Party is blessed with competent, articulate and caring candidates. Our party must be led by someone who is capable of carrying out the hopes and dreams of Americans. We must inspire our citizens to have dreams and aspirations, but most importantly, we must have leaders with both the vision and the capabilities of making those dreams a reality. Senator Clinton is that person. She stands head and shoulders above the rest. Today, I am endorsing Hillary Rodham Clinton because I truly believe that she will provide access and opportunities for my constituents and people all across the country as the next President of the United States.
