Well isn’t this something. Shondaland is totally Team Hillary. They’re with her, I’m with her. Yes, Hillary said some boneheaded things today while talking about Nancy Reagan at the woman’s funeral. She praised Mrs. Reagan’s “low-key advocacy” which she said “started national conversation” on HIV/AIDS awareness. This is simply not true, and I sincerely hope she walks back these comments soon*. But, again, all candidates are flawed. None is a magical unicorn that can snap her (or if it must be his) fingers and make the world a perfect, rainbow-filled place of peace and prosperity. Nor does it change the fact that there is absolutely no daylight between her current totally pro-LGBT platform and her competitor’s. I am behind her because she is a woman I trust can get things done, has gotten things done and will continue to get things done. Sure she has made mistakes and will continue to make mistakes. She’s a human being. If you don’t support her in this primary election, that’s fine. But if you don’t support her to the point that you would rather let Donald Trump or Ted Cruz assumes the presidency, then you’ve crossed over into fantasy world somewhere way, way over the rainbow.
p.p.s. *Oh thank God, she did.
p.s. Don’t worry, I’m no hypocrite. If Bernie wins I’d totally vote for him, too.

p.p.p.s. And here, once more, is an even more thorough, detailed and I think definitive apology from Hillary. People make mistakes, but how you correct them really matters.
