My point about Palin was that she was despised because of her politics.

She wasn't held in reverence because she had boobs.

What people don’t understand is that even to be president you have to have the psychological mentality of a serial killer.

We might want to start disqualifying people just because they want the job. I keep waiting for a goodly king (or queen) - but, you know how that goes

Some of us get this - I'm guessing more on the outside. Some day there will be a first openly non-Christian president, a first Native American president, a first Jewish president...a first Muslim president. Every step is a sign that we walk the walk that was talked about on that fancy piece of paper of ours

It's a losing battle in here though Willtell - the people who don't care about this sort of thing are in a tizzy. I think they actually believe we don't understand what they're saying :-)

Also - check your PMs

When Sarah Palin was nominated as veep, there was so much hatred and ridicule from the left that it was nauseating.

Was it because she was a woman?


Now you all want to celebrate simply because she's a woman and ignore the political partisan aspects?

Then - you say this :-)

You know maybe folks have daughters and even wives who might feel a bit of pride.


My wife and daughter don't relate to Hilary and are just as repulsed by her as I am...sorry to tell you that someone having a vagina doesn't mean they have anything else in common.

Yada yada - SonOfThor

Because - you hate this system so much you would rather blather on about what's wrong with it than acknowledge what's right with it

Me personally? I don't care what you hate. The only reason I'm posting in this thread is because a woman might (might) be president soon. She wasn't my first choice either

Guess what? I can still celebrate a victory for this country - even still

Sorry . . . in no rational way does the gritchy one qualify as a

"Lady."

She may be female . . . anatomically. But she's the furthest thing from a "lady" that someone with a vagina could be.

She comes across much more as a very mean bustard-to-the-max. Though a 'bw*tch' also fits. . . . along with compulsive liar, homicidal, etc.

I'll stop there before my rant gets excessive.

You can celebrate what you want how you want, but that doesn't change the fact that this whole milestone is based on a façade of $15,000 jackets, war mongering, $200,000 speeches to wall street insiders, nation building, and regime changing.

It is an ironic stance you take - celebrating her solely based on her gender, regardless of what kind of person she is.

Older women remember Monica. Younger women like Bernie. Hillary has a large uphill battle and playing the woman card will not work for her in the end.

Trump will never attack so each time she say something it is reactionary..and a distracting

She's not the first or only female candidate to be on the ballot (and she isn't even on it yet)....

Nothing really historical here at all. Just because it's a "major" party???? Hell of a qualifier.

Agreed. My mother is a die-hard liberal from Boston, voted for Obama twice and her opinion about Hillary would violate the T&Cs of this forum. Granted - she is one person and this is one anecdote, so take it for what its worth.

The only value a woman might have as a president is if they thought the same way as your wife and daughter?

Your wife or your daughter never had a shot at being president. They still might not...

Only in this country would that be ironic. I'm guessing electing Obama isn't something that meant anything either?

:-)

Fair enough - milestones are only milestones when they make sense to you. You can lead a horse to water...

I agree with you, but this thread is about representation in government and Hillary sure has perseverance and other positive qualities I am sure, or she would not have made it this far.

Hillary is a snake oil salesman without morals, and with a temperament that WILL put this nation in jeopardy. She can't be trusted. Having served two years in the White House Military Office during the Clinton Administration, I've spent enough time around the Clintons that I'd sooner vote for a regressive fool like Trump than to buy into her lies and deceit. Believe me when I say she's dangerous.


And how dangerous do you think Mr. Trump will be when he gets control of the nuke codes?

Guess who is most admired, it's Hillary (see link below).

Hillary Clinton is not a woman. Hillary Clinton is a snake wearing a human outfit.

Bears repeating with emphasis.

I suspect 90+ % of the WH and Secret Service staff would cheeringly agree vigorously.

We’re Allowed To Be Excited That A Woman Could Be President



You don’t have to love Hillary Clinton to celebrate the impact she just made.




I remember sitting in a bar back in November 2008 with a bunch of other Americans on the campus of our Canadian university. We watched the results of the presidential election roll in with bated breath and beers, and when CNN finally called it for Obama, everyone started crying with joy. It was an incredible and profound moment — full of hope and excitement and understanding that for the first time ever, our president would not be white. I knew that meant something hugely important for all Americans, and something even more personal for black Americans.





Now, eight years later, we are on the brink of another profoundly historic moment — this time, for American women. And on Tuesday night, I found myself brought to tears once again (though at a Beyoncé concert, not a bar) as Hillary Clinton secured the majority of pledged delegates in the Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday night.

If we're going with analogies, libertarians and others who are pointing out the absurdity in adoring Hillary just because she's a woman are trying to point out to the rest of you horses that the water you are drinking is being poisoned by sewage being dumped into it from up the river.

Amongst all the darkness here a flicker of light beacons!

In the Light thanks for some light

Though they cannot see it now, (because the blind and the seeing are not alike) though they will know one way or the other

Either through the glimmer of the light of love

OR THE FIRE
