I like your bolded sentence. That's what appeals to me about her. I'm tired of the generational politicians and the children of privilege going to DC and spending our money frivolously, and pontificating with the old "I care about you, I know what it's like to be in your shoes" horse****. She really does know. Not only is she a first generation American, she seems to have lived a very normal middle class life. College, flight attendant, a few corporate jobs, married, 3 kids, voice for issues in her family's community.....she's more like most of us than most of the rest of them are. Fresh faces are good and sorely needed in DC, especially the ones who seem like they're "real" Americans (if that makes sense).
