Shocking News!

Women's group plans to endorse Clinton

Can't say I am suprised at all by this development. What scares me (besides Hillary herself) is that anyone would vote for her simply for the novelty of having a female President. This isn't only limited to women either; I have had conversations with many a man who thought it would be "cool" to have a woman running the country not to mention what a boost it would be to women's rights movements.

The simplest analogy I use to get them to thinking about the haphazard way they are making this important decision is this:

Harken back to the Lewinsky scandal (I know, I know, bear with me). Remember when Hillary claimed she knew nothing of it until just before the story broke. This can mean only two things:

1. She was lying, as what woman would not know her man was stepping out. This goes to her lack of integrity and a character flaw that she is willing to do whatever it takes to succeed, no matter who she has to run over along the way (just like her hubby).

2. She was telling the truth, in which case she is just not smart and incapable of making decisions that affect the whole globe.

To me, that alone makes her questionable and it has made more than one person reconsider their decision.

I agree with you 100% on this. I have always said that either Hillary is a liar or very dumb when it came to the Lewinsky scandal. As you point out it is ludicrous for us to believe that after he had cheated on her hundreds of times that she would believe nothing was going on, therefore for her to claim she knew nothing means she was lying.

Lets see, the choice is between someone who is an idiot or deceptive. Neither sounds good to me.

The other thing that bothered me about that whole situation was how they supposedly went to marriage counseling and we were all supposed to believe that they were working on things. Its obvious that their marriage has been about mutual power sharing and nothing more. It was a HUGE insult to my intelligence to tell me that this blindsighted Hillary and that they then worked on their marriage. Whatever!!

Sorry, you got me on my soap box :-).

LMC, you took the words right out of my mouth.

I absolutely believe the only reason they maintain any relationshp is purely for the sake of their respective careers.

You know Slick Willy is DYING to get back into the White House, whatever the cost.

(I shudder at the thought)

Feminists rallying behind Hillary is no surprise and Hillary's camp is too smart to embrace them. However, it is funny how Hillary standing by an adulterer for so long hasnt served as much of a concern yet.

It's funny when that whole thing went down, because it was "Hillary" deciding not to divorce, all the ladies were breaking out there Tammy Wynette, "Stand by Your Man" CD's. Any other woman trying to make it work after that would be labeled "weak", but Hillary is "merciful".

It is just this bias and blind loyalty to her that scares me because it could very well take her all the way.

I'm not a Hillary Clinton fan, but I don't think she should be punished for the "sins" of her husband. If marriage is sacred, then she did the right thing. If marriage is a man made event, then she should have kicked his behind to the curve. The second option is the one I believe and the one I would have chosen especially since he really humiliated her in front of the entire nation.
