A Dutch MP Resigns Just so She Can Campaign for Hillary

Who says she's not insprising young women!

"D66 parliamentarian Wassila Hachchi resigned from the Tweede Kamer, lower house of parliament, and is heading to the United States to campaign for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, her political party announced on Wednesday."

"Hachchi was a parliamentarian for five years. She spoke represented the D66 on Defense and the Dutch interests in the Caribbean. “Her tough interrogations during the parliamentary committee inquiries into housing corporations are also notable,” said D66 leader Alexander Pechtold. “I wish her all the best for the future."

"Newly-elected lower house leader Khadija Arib thanked Hachchi for her services as parliamentarian, pointing out her efforts in several political committees. “I wish her every success in America with a job that, whatever the outcome may be, affects the whole world,” Arib said.

"Hachci was not present in the Tweede Kamer when she was thanked for her service. She is the third D66 parliamentarian to leave before her term is up. In May last year parliamentarian Gerard Schouw left the faction, followed by Magda Berndsen in November."

Again, cherrpicking the worst Hillary polls is a feature not a bug.

"Top democrats and democratic supporters are not happy to see Hillary Clinton’s lead slipping in key primary states like Iowa to the only other viable democratic nominee, Bernie Sanders. They also aren’t willing to leave anything to chance. Despite the fact that Clinton seems to do much better when the chips are down, both top democrats and Hollywood elite are racing to Iowa in record numbers to make sure Clinton’s campaign gets the boost it may need."

"Demi Lovato has endorsed Clinton and stopped by the University of Iowa on Thursday night to speak with potential Clinton voters, to appeal to the millennial base, and to give a little concert. After singing one of her newest songs, “Confident,” she told the crowd that she didn’t think there was a woman that was “more confident than Hillary Clinton.” She went on to say, “She completely embodies the concept of women empowerment.”

"Along with Lovato, Tony Goldwyn of “Scandal” fame will also be visiting the state on Clinton’s behalf. Jamie Lee Curtis will be visiting other areas to make sure that both politicians and celebrities hit all of the major cities to keep a strong lead into the primaries."

"On the politician side of things, Senators Timothy Kaine (Va.), Cory Booker (New Jersey), and Kirsten Gillibrand (New York), along with Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Julian Castro will be traveling to Iowa to show their support at their own events."

"Perhaps even more importantly, many of the unions and non-profits are at the events to support Clinton. In Vinton, the state chapter of the NEA, which includes about 35,000 teachers, appeared in T-shirts, with pins, stickers, and signs. Chapter President Tammy Wawro was on hand saying, “We want to win. This is the bottom line, and we need to come out of the gate with a candidate that can win.”

"The Human Rights Campaign recently endorsed Clinton earlier this week and have since been urging their members in Iowa to caucus for her. Chad Griffin, the president of the HRC will formally endorse Clinton Sunday while in Des Moines."

"Stephanie Schriock, President of Emily’s List, hit eight stops in Iowa on Thursday and Friday to rally supporters, organizers, and volunteers in the Clinton campaign. Schriock was an early supporter of Clinton and it’s obvious that her enthusiasm has not waned for Clinton as her campaign has progressed."

"Planned Parenthood has organized phone banks in Iowa and they have sent out mailers, as well. They will be releasing digital ads showing their support for Clinton, also. If all of that wasn’t enough, Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood president will be holding events on both Saturday and Sunday. Planned Parenthood is not the only women’s health group rooting for Clinton. NARAL-Pro Choice America has invested into the six figure range to boost Clinton’s lead in Iowa. They are canvassing several cities in Iowa including Ames, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and Iowa City. They also have phone banks set up to reach members that are located in other areas of the state."

If you notice this has gotten Hillary Democrats much more engaged. I mean take me, myself. A few weeks ago I wasn't writing much about Hillary as I figured she was doing well.

And she is doing much better than the Beltway is claiming-and maybe even her own team is willing to admit. After all, it's better to be the underdog which is what she somehow has become.
Even though I think she is in pretty good shape to win Iowa-and could even ride that wave to win NH-I'm not taking any chances and neither are other Hillary supporters.
