What, what, what?

A bitch does not like Hillary 2008’s tactic of playing the little lady card...not one bit.

First there was that tired ass line about how when a woman reaches a certain age it’s nice to have so many men paying any attention to her.

What the FUCK was that…what, what.

WHAT?

Is it too much to ask for the national front runner to seriously address the critiques made of her record or am I being asked to vote for her because she can manage a sassy ignore and redirect response over and over and over and over and over again?

Jesus.

Now we have this…I don’t know what to call it…while Senator Clinton was visiting Wellesley.

“…in so many ways, this all women’s college prepared me compete in the all boys’ club of presidential politics.”

And those ways are...?

Heaven to hell and back again...Gawd, grant me strength!

Are those big strapping mean men roughing up the little lady in the room just because she's leading the race and thus the obvious target for attack?

Poor dear.

Must be dreadful.

Blink.

Someone...anyone...intervene!

The whole world is watching (shudder)...

I'll admit, I really want to vote for Hillary. I want to see a woman president, I want to see more women in power in our government. I want to stand up in front of my daughter, and say I voted for a woman. Women can be president. But I want Hillary to make me want to vote for HER, not just her femaleness.

When they all ganged up on Barack, did he say, ' They're picking on me because I'm Black?'

No.

He took the hits and moved on.

Don't pull that White Girl #*$& when things get rough. I don't want to hear it.

I don't think that 2008 is going to be the year I get to vote for a woman for president. Damn.

I did not watch any of that garbage.

I live in Florida. Our primaries are so late in the season that by the time we get to vote, there is nobody to vote for.

In 2000 there were two guys running right before the FL primaries. Al Gore and Bill Bradley. Bill dropped out a week before the primary. Same for 2004.

So what is the point? There is none. Even though Florida is a big state with a lot of electoral votes - we have no say.

So I do not watch any of that garbage. It does not matter. I get no say anyway. Other States with fewer votes that count get to pick who runs.

I'm with J. I want to vote for a woman president. We need a woman president, but Hillary is not convincing me that she is proper material. I also want to vote for a black person. We need a black president in thos country to once and for all show the cracker element of America that their shit stinks.
After 8 yrs of corpo-fascism we have some very serious domestic problems that need to be addressed and fixed. I HAVE to look for the candidate who, along with an agressive policy to get us out of international affairs we have no business being in, also has an agressive policy for fixing the domestic problems. So far, the shiney spiffy white guy wins. The best I can hope for at this point is an Edwards/Obama ticket, or Clinton and Obama open up and tell us how they're going to go about changing the United States of America.

If Cynthia McKinney is the Green Party candidate, there is a good chance I will be voting for a woman for president in 2008.

To be fair, she was speaking at the commencement of her alma mater, and this "women's college graduates kick ass in the Real World" is boilerplate at such colleges. Yes, it sounds very weird to outsiders. But it is true that the Seven Sisters (and I daresay Spelman) produce a disproportionate number of women who succeed in previously male dominated arenas. I for one am proud of my alma mater, Mt. Holyoke Coll., which for a while produced more women going on to sciences and maths Ph.D.s than any other undergraduate entity (including subunit of university) regardless of size. It is also true that these women's schools tend to foster a Rosie-the-Riveter attitude of We Can Do It!
