A well-deserved standing ovation for Hillary Clinton

Hi Katalusis friends, I'm a little late in calling your attention to the Hill's piece about Hillary Clinton's "hero's welcome" at the DNC Women's Leadership Forum the day after the Benghazi hearing last Thursday, Oct. 23. But I'm sure you'll share the joy I experienced at the thought of women in the audience giving the soon to be first woman president a standing ovation - and some of them stood throughout her speech!

 Hillary Clinton was greeted like a returning war hero at a Democratic National Committee (DNC) forum the morning after a long day of Republican interrogation at a hearing of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. 

“As some of you may know, I had a pretty long day yesterday,” Clinton told a whistling, cheering audience of several hundred Democratic women who were on their feet to greet her arrival at the DNC's Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday morning.
“I wanted to rise above partisanship and reach for statesmanship, and that is what I tried to do,” Clinton said of her 11-hour Benghazi performance. 

Clinton received the most ecstatic reception of all the Democratic candidates who addressed the DNC’s Women’s Leadership Forum, with some audience members staying on their feet throughout her speech.
