Hillary Clinton at The Paramount and Elliott Bay Book Company

by Erika Hoel - Special to the SGN

An excited buzz filled the air on Monday, December 11, as the crowd streamed into The Paramount. Women (and many men, too, but mostly women) sporting pantsuits, pussyhats, 'I'm with her' buttons, and tees with other political slogans were led to their seats by theatre staff and volunteers. Some made their way towards the orchestra pit, posing for selfies with an empty stage, save for two vacant chairs and bookshelves, each with multiple copies of one title: 'What Happened.' What did happen, exactly? A question many of us have wondered since November 8, 2016, we were all gathered to hear some answers from the seasoned politician herself, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Her electoral loss, the GOP tax plan, 'Those Damn Emails' - those are just a few of the many contributing factors behind the post-election blues felt by nearly 66 million voters in the United States. Clinton spoke of FBI investigations, misogyny, deep-rooted bigotry, and her own gloom following that fateful day. Yet she persisted. Women in politics, children in pantsuits, her family, faith, and the activism erupting across America kept her going - with the help of her fair share of HGTV and Chardonnay. She told of the inspiration she drew from the masses taking charge, the voices speaking out, the people rejecting the notion that hatred and fear are American values. Thus, Onward Together - an organization focused on grassroots political engagement and activism - was born. As the evening came to a close, Hillary left the audience with one final note of hope: 'When I think about hope, I think about small acts of kindness,' she said. 'That recognition of one another's humanity. That sense of, yes, we are all in this together. And that is the core of my hope.'

The following day, folks of all ages turned out once more as Clinton made an appearance at Elliott Bay Book Co., signing copies of 'What Happened.' She took a moment to speak to each person in line, shaking hands, asking questions, listening. Tears were shed and gratitude expressed, her influence undeniable. She may have lost the electoral vote, but Hillary Clinton's days of keeping her guard up are over, and she isn't going anywhere.
