CONGRATULATIONS for making history, Madam!
Other than sharing your gender and your profession of government service, I do not have anything common with you and your priceless years of experience. This is not an advice but a humble request. I wish to impress upon you to reconsider your decision not to take the job offered by USDA as reported in Good Morning America this morning.
Tom Vilsack made a mistake and he has offered a very public apology which seemed as genuine as your own video-presentation. While I am not discounting your pain and suffering, I would urge your to accept this offer and get back to doing what you do best- serving the people who need you!!
If you reject this offer, you are not only turning down a genuine apology and a sincere attempt to make right a wrong, you are also turning down the multitudes of people in need. And, most importantly you will have made the very rabid, wingnuts a huge success in their stupid pursuits. So, please do not reject this offer!!
