"Why hats are so important at Republican and Democratic Conventions" | AJC.com | 07/14/2016 | Hillary In 2016 | Scoop.it

Helena Oliviero - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Jill Chambers plans to wear business attire to the Republican National Convention with one very big, bright exception: her red, white and blue cowboy hat.

Chambers, an Atlanta delegate, also plans to adorn the hat, designed out of fabric in the colors of the American flag, with “Donald Trump for President” pins. The more the better, she says....

 

Meanwhile, delegate Franklin Delano Williams will proudly wear a hat covered in Hillary Clinton stickers and buttons at the Democratic National Convention.

“The hat has two purposes: to show your support and it also gets you in the news,” said Williams, who was a delegate in 2008 for Hillary Clinton.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

.....I spoke with an AJC reporter today for this article.

"Labor Movement Rallies For Hillary Clinton In Primary" | Iowa Starting Line | 11/22/15

Hillary Clinton scored a major victory this past week by gaining the endorsement of SEIU, the healthcare workers union that represents over 2 million workers. That bumped the total membership of unions backing her candidacy to over 10 million. With the endorsements of 13 labor unions so far, including the heavyweights of AFSCME, the NEA and SEIU, Clinton has dominated the race for labor support. Most notably, several unions on her list either back Obama or Edwards in 2008, or stayed neutral. …

There are many reasons to be wary of Clinton, but a subset of Democrats seem to be motivated by something else
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:
QUOTE FROM ARTICLE: If America as a whole has a complicated relationship with the former First Lady, one segment of the population stands out. Research from the Wall Street Journal this November showed that Hillary hysteria is coming from one major sector of the population — white men. “Sixty-four percent of white men hold an unfavorable view of Mrs. Clinton, compared with just 26 percent who see her in a positive light,” the Journal’s Aaron Zitner noted. “That’s a gap of 38 points.” #AmericaHasWhiteMaleProblem!!
