Christopher Burnett, San Francisco

Oh, yeah. Don't fool yourselves, gentlemen -- Hillary Rodham Clinton is headstrong, ambitious and tough. I'll put my money on the New York senator in 2008. She's got my vote.



Richard Steinbach, Novato

I think it's not likely... The name that comes up most often is Hillary Clinton, and as sexist as it may sound, I believe she is damaged goods.



Gene Boscacci, San Francisco

Yes. Today people want peace, and a woman would think of war as a last resort, utilizing her intuitive powers rather than the male's dominant, aggressive ego...

No. And there will be no female Prime Minister of Australia in my lifetime, either.

Both political systems are biased against females, sad to say...

I'd like to see Giuliani take the Senate seat from Hillary. If she still wants to run for President after losing an election, bring her on.

Unless there is a clone of Margaret Thatcher, I certainly hope not.

I'm not so concerned about a female President coming to power as I am about a female Furher.

Naw. If I were writing a book about the coronation, it would include an October surprise plane crash with Edwards, Pennsylvania going Bush after Republicans rig machines in Philadelphia to only count each vote once, Florida going Kerry, New Hampshire going Kerry, giving Kerry 270 to 268. After Hilliary gets the nod for VP, but before the electoral college vote, Kerry also meets his maker. But the votes are in the mail. Now, if I want a tragedy, HR gets all 270 votes. If I want a happy ending, two brave souls vote otherwise. Then the Senate picks the Vice-President, and chooses Chaney over Rodham.

In the House, it takes 26 states to name a President, and we have a Constitutional crisis. Kerry has 270 votes, but he's dead. Chaney is clearly legally the Vice-President, and had Kerry lasted until January 20th, he'd clearly be President. It turns out the two electors who voted against HRC did so to keep Kerry's life insurance from cancelling him, to no avail.

To you legal eagles: in this scenario, do the electors get a do-over? If so, what happens to the two dead electors' votes? If it goes to the House, and the House is divided against itself, does the election stand? As I recall, the top three go to the House. Suppose a D voted for Nader and an R voted for Badnarik. Would the House choose Bush in that case? All weird questions, I know, but I'm counting on you.

We need to get Hillary defeated in 2006 first. Long shot, but better to take her out then.

I wished Guiliani would run. Can't think of anybody else in NY at this moment. I'm afraid that for as long as she lives, she will try. Grrrr...20 more years of Hill and Bill?

Hillary is not aging well. And she's not very sympathetic or likable. She doesn't present herself well. The far left would love her, but the average American would think twice. I'm not sure most are ready for a female president.

I have a very liberal friend who would vote for any Dem, but can't stand Hillary. Her likability factor may be key.

But yes, she will try.

"Hillary Rodham Clinton is headstrong, ambitious and tough. She's got my vote."

A bull is also headstrong, ambitious and tough, but is it qualified to be Commander 'n Chief.

Hitlery was already co-President, so I'm sure she thinks she's eminently qualified.

In 1992, she said:

"If you vote for my husband, you get me; it's a two-for-one, blue plate special."

My grandmother who is 89 went to a church social a few weeks ago. She said that her friends were buzzing about The Passion and about the upcoming Presidential election.

She called me later that evening all upset. She said that her best friend who drives her everywhere told her that there was NO WAY she would drive my grandmother to vote this year. I asked my grandmother what had happened that would possess that sweet woman to say such a thing?

She said, "Well, I told her that I thought Bill Clinton was sexy."

LOL!
