Hillary Clinton has a message for Pantsuit Nation

Hillary Clinton has a message for Pantsuit Nation. Hillary Clinton gets Pantsuit Nation. What started out as a few dozen friends banding together to wear pantsuits to the polls on Nov. 8 has become a social media force of more than 2 million people in less than three weeks. Clinton, she said, had seen the group's deeply personal posts and wanted to "say thanks directly." What followed was an uplifting, optimistic missive from the first female presidential candidate of a major political party. "I'm honored and humbled to have all of you with me," Clinton wrote, "but I'm even prouder to see this community represent the best of America: people of all backgrounds and beliefs who share a vision for a brighter future for our children, and who have each other's backs." That sums up the ethos of Pantsuit Nation, a Facebook page inundated with testimonials and stories from every type of Clinton supporter, including those who never dreamed they'd be casting a vote in her favor. But there were also plenty of tears shed. Here is Clinton's note, reprinted with the campaign's permission: Dear Pantsuit Nation (have you ever heard a better name?! Your stories and photos of family members and friends are wonderful to see, but what truly warms my heart is the thousands of comments of support and love you all send to each other.

Hillary Clinton gets
Pantsuit Nation
.

That much was clear when she sent a message Tuesday afternoon to
the secret Facebook group of her supporters. What started out as a
few dozen friends banding together to wear pantsuits to the polls
on Nov. 8 has become a social media force of more than 2 million
people in less than three weeks.

Tens of thousands of them were moved by Clinton’s gesture.

The note arrived via a campaign official who belongs to the
group. Clinton, she said, had seen the group’s deeply personal
posts and wanted to “say thanks directly.” What followed was an
uplifting, optimistic missive from the first female presidential
candidate of a major political party.

“I’m honored and humbled to have all of you with me,” Clinton
wrote, “but I’m even prouder to see this community represent the
best of America: people of all backgrounds and beliefs who share a
vision for a brighter future for our children, and who have each
other’s backs.”

That sums up the ethos of Pantsuit…
