What the Hillary?
Ok, I will throw in my two cents here and hopefully my flack vest will prevent the bullets from puncturing my ego, whats left of it.
Now is not the time to try flying a female president past the voting public and here's why.
50% (at least) of registered voters are female, the rest are male of course and therein lies the rub. That 50% male vote might just work against Hillary in a Presidential election. Her qualifications to be president might be equal to any other male candidate but the separation of the voters could risk serious divisions in the voting populous. A majority of men do not want Hillary as president because she is female and Hillary. With the 50% female vote where will the remaining votes go?
To the Republican candidates like Chuck Hagel or another centrist similar. This puts the 2008 election in jeopardy of becoming a Republican victory. The will of the people cannot be ignored. In an ideal situation it should not matter whether we elect a female or a male candidate, but this is no ordinary situation. We are in an illegal war, corporations have more political strength than ever before.
There will be a huge mess to clean up once the new Administration gets there. People do not realize the extent to which the government has been corrupted, this all needs to be dealt with. They will not forget who voted to get us into this mess and who waffled on getting us out, yes Hillary.
This is not the time to experiment with something new, this is the time for a deliberate change in the way K street and the rest operate, time to end the Iraqi oil grab, time to put back into the world our commitment to human rights, time to send the Republicans back to school and teach them public service not self service. By breaking the electorate into pieces we risk more of the same old crap from the same old assholes. We need a unified electorate like we had in 2006.
President of the United States is a BIG job and as such needs a solid indisputable candidate preferably male to lead us out of the darkness, someone with fewer skeletons in the closet than Hillary. Someone with a commitment to the people to improve our standing in the world, not complicate it. With the rest of the world leaders looking for strength from us, we need someone that can be looked up to for that strength.
Now before you gals come looking to remove my most treasured possessions(naughty bits), please understand that I am not against females in government, quite the opposite, they are needed for balance, just not Hillary, not now.
