All I Had


(Video by Tim Farrell)

I couldn’t help but remember her last desperate attempt to get one more primary win when everything was already lost. “Any regrets?” asked David Gregory this morning on Meet the Press to the now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “No, not at all. I gave it all I had.” And indeed she did.

It didn’t matter Barack Obama was mathematically the winner of the Democratic Primary; she flew to Puerto Rico, and on a hot May day she got on a pick-up truck and traveled for hours the San Juan metropolitan area. The vote was hers; but it changed nothing. She gave in a few days later.

Even though her pointless persistence got me mad at times -covering her campaign was a grueling experience- I learned to respect this extraordinary woman, one of the most talented politicians of our time.
