Brooklyn Is Totally Freaking Out Over Hillary Clinton

Since announcing her bid for the presidency in April, Hillary Clinton has received an outpouring of support from celebrities like Amy Poehlor and Lena Dunham, and now the borough of Brooklyn is joining in the love fest in a major way. When the presidential hopeful was out and about in the borough that houses her campaign headquarters earlier this week, she was quickly surrounded by grinning residents, so excited to see her that they could barely contain themselves (at least, in the video she shared on her Twitter feed).
"Brooklyn, USA, how do you beat that?" Hillary exclaimed happily after emerging from the subway to a crowd of well-wishers.  A cab driver slows his car to lean out the window and proudly proclaim that he "tell[s] every body in my car to vote for Hillary Clinton," to which the former Secretary of State smartly replies, "You're my kind of man." A group of young girls is seen waving from a classic Brooklyn brownstone stoop, one of them gleefully yelling out, "You're awesome!"  But our favorite Hillary fan is the fashionable young Brooklynite in a pencil skirt and mustard-yellow sweater who runs across the street (jayrunning!) to greet the candidate, jumping up and down in excitement before telling Clinton "We love you."
