This final campaign ad for Hillary Clinton is hitting me in all the feels.

I can't even begin to express my relief that this ridiculously long and horrible election season is almost over. The stress it has brought upon me and so many others is palpable.

My late grandmother would have been 100 years old this December. She was born before women had the right to vote. I wish she had lived long enough to be part of this election, like these centenarians. I imagine she would have been as thrilled to vote for Hillary as she was to vote for a fellow Irish Catholic in JFK. In honor of her, and my eldest daughter (who voted for the first time this year), I am wearing suffragette white on Tuesday.

So I can't honestly say that I have any interest in what these Trump surrogates have to say in these final waning days. That the campaign still has a chance? Good luck with that. Nor do I care about the conservative pundits, desperately trying to absolve themselves of the misinformation and lies that define a Trump voter. It's beyond time for retreat and licking of wounds.
