Hillary's support

May 12, 2008 - Bill Speer
It was billed as Arizona's largest ghost town that today is more of a hippie hang-out. Naturally intrigued, Diane and I set out through the desert rim and rock to Jerome - not your average Wild West town.

As we kept crossing back and forth over the switch-backs leading up the side of the mountain I wondered out loud if the road ever was going to straighten out again. The answer, by the way, was no. However, just around the one corner there was a group of houses precariously hanging on to the side of the mountain and in the middle, was one that definitely caught my eye. Pictured with the blog is the house - with patriotic red, white and blue bras adorning the fence and a sign "Support Hillary" out front. It was too good to pass by so I did a quick turn-around to capture it on camera and share with readers.

This week is a critical one for Hillary's campaign. There has been a lot of political speculation over the weekend that Hillary's campaign is like a balloon losing air. If you listen to the pundits, Hillary is toast.

She would disagree and quoted Eleanor Roosevelt that "a woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she is in hot water."


I can't help but wonder today how prophetic this photograph might actually be, however.

Remember, this was taken on the road to a ghost town for Heaven's sake. Unless you're in Chicago, I don't know of many ghosts who will be heading to the polls in November.

Then again, the mine in Jerome actually went through several revivals - first silver and gold, then copper and finally uranium.

Hillary this week is hoping for one of those revivals.

Will it be tea, or will it be toast?
