    I can't tell if Hillary is running or Obama. She will hang on to his leg until she is nominated and begins debating with the GOP nominee. We will then see HRC take a hard right.

    It is such a stress relief to run. I love explore new trails, especially through the woods. There is something so comforting about the lighting and the life in the trees.
