WELCOME TO THE CLARA FOR PRESIDENT
YES SHE CAN
Thinking about Warren or Harris? Angry Clinton lost? Still want a woman to beat Trump?
You can make more of the MeToo Movement. Let's be clear: Clara is your Candidate.
Clara Schumann is the ideal role model. Better than Clinton and Warren? Yes she is. She showed men how to do it by heart. Gutsy and glamorous, Clara is world famous for her career, is a mother of eight children (yes, 8!), an esteemed educator and editor, and a devoted wife and friend to some of the greatest intellectuals and artists of the world.
This is the woman we have been waiting for. Vote for Clara200? That's 200.....
With Clara, we can return our values of integrity, creativity, beauty, truth, and most of all, love, to our nation. Why? Comparing Clara with the other candidates, we would say at once that she surpasses them all in that great quality which we sum up expressively by the word “soul.”
Donate now and hear why Clara can calm, cure and caress. Just what this nation needs. Make music. Not War. DONATE NOW AND HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
