Tough Enough <p>Hill's The Right Kind Of Woman To Be First Female Prez
New York Post Online ^ | May 7, 2006 | John Podhoretz

IT'S perhaps the least politically cor rect question imaginable: Can a woman win the presidency of the United States?

While the offensive quality of the question will prevent it from being addressed head-on in the next couple of years, the canny Clintons surely understand that they need to deal with it if Hillary is to win the presidency in 2008.

If this has any validity, her first presidency will have to be any issue- the one where al Qaeda was left alone and allowed to become a murdering behemouth, and during which terrorists routinely slaughtered Americans with no consequences.

Could she overcome that?

I don't think Americans like her.

I don't think she can overcome that. A political observer I know who's worked in 8 campaigns, most of them winning ones, said that the primary reason Kerry lost is because of the "voted for it before I voted against it" streak in his character--he was a man who felt most comfortable in a suit, yet tried to come off as a regular guy; he was a combat vet who gained fame as a peacenik. Whatever you thought of Bush, you felt you knew him. When he said Jesus was his favorite philosopher, you might think he was a dork, but most people also felt as he did, and found his answer refreshing.

Does America know the first thing about this woman other than what her intensely controlling personality lets us see? I don't see that, and FOX certainly won't let her glide through the campaign the way the New York press did.
