Sen. Clinton Touts Woman for President
World Net Daily

SENECA FALLS, N.Y.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, standing outside an abandoned knitting mill that will become the new home of the National Women's Hall of Fame, said Thursday she hopes America is ready for its first woman president. "It just depends on when and if that happens," the former first lady said. "Stay tuned."

Clinton continued to duck questions about whether she will run for the White House in 2008, saying yet again she is completely focused on her re-election this year.

But Clinton said that when it comes to a woman holding what she called "the toughest job in the world, some day it will happen."

Clinton was on the campaign trail Thursday reaching out to women _ a core group of supporters _ in her front-running bid for a second Senate term, a race many see as a prelude to a run for president in two years.

Recent polls have shown Clinton far ahead of her rivals in the New York race, and with a distinct advantage among female voters.

A poll released last week by Quinnipiac University's Polling Institute found the job approval rating for the state's junior senator at 58 percent _ 53 percent among male voters and 63 percent among women.

But even some women who support Clinton's re-election this year aren't certain she should run for the White House in 2008, in large part because she is a woman.

Valerie Brechko, an elementary school teacher from Penn Yan, said Wednesday during a Clinton campaign stop that while she is a strong Clinton supporter, she doesn't want her to run in 2008 because she can't win.

"I don't feel that our country is willing or ready to vote a woman into that office," Brechko said. "I hate to say it _ I'm definitely a women's libber _ but they're just not ready."

Clinton faces a Sept. 12 primary against anti-Iraq war activist Jonathan Tasini. Former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer and Reagan-era Pentagon official Kathleen Troia "KT" McFarland are vying for the Republican Senate nomination.

Pity anyone who gets between her and the Dem nomination. That is definitely no-man's land, and it could be deadly ground.

Hillary thinks a woman President is a good idea only if she is that woman. Hillary can't hold a candle to the best world leaders who were/are women. Margaret Thatcher, Golda Meir, Indira Gandhi just to name a few. These women had integrity, strength, ethics and could answer a question. Hillary's 'listening' tour won't fly in the rest of the country. She has no ethics, no integrity and she has NO political acumen. Run, Hillary, run.

FOX/Opinion Dynamics News Poll: Clinton Ready to Be First Female President ((((SHUDDER))))

Fox News ^ | 8/31/06
NEW YORK — Just over half of Americans believe Sen. Hillary Clinton is prepared to be the first female president of the United States, according to a new FOX News poll. In addition, Clinton is the preferred choice of Democratic voters for their party’s 2008 presidential nominee; on the Republican side, former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani barely edges out Ariz. Sen. John McCain for frontrunner billing. Opinion Dynamics Corporation conducted the national telephone poll of 900 registered voters for FOX News from August 29 to August 30. The poll has a 3-point error margin. A slim 51-percent majority of voters...

I don't want a woman president, know that some women can do a lot of jobs even better than men.

Other nations, especially during these WOT times, might feel more comfortable dealing with a male than a female.

Hillary especially projects a caring only about her own party and agenda and not about what is best for our country, and would put her own people in there like she fired the travel staff.

Bush seemed to put his own people in there, too, but not rock the boat too much by keeping people from the old guard and look where it got him.

The first woman president, as well as the first black president, will be Republican. Democrat women and minorities are far to radically leftwing to be electable. Only right or right-center women and minorities (i.e., those in the Republican Party) stand a change of getting elected.

It reminds me of those wanting Colin Powell to run in 00, and glad he didn't, after his not-so-illustrious stint at Secretary of State.

Rice says she's not interested, but if she changes her mind, she's got my vote.

Really, there is only one Repub that I would refuse to vote for. Not many of the names being kicked around right now particularly enthuse me, but when you consider the consequences of a Dem in power, they all (with only the one exception) look like giants among men.

I have worried that a Hillary running with, say, Obama, would be tough for the Repubs to beat. She would definitely energize the Repub base, but she and Obama would be appealing to the Oprah-watchers out there in Oprah-land, which is the big brain-dead-middle-ground both parties try to woo, and neither party can win without.

The Repubs won't beat her if they put up a milquetoast who tries to blur the differences between the parties. They need to go bold. Go bold, and we have a chance. Go soft and she will eat our lunch, and keep eating it for the next 4 years.

I say four years, because while I think she could win, I don't think she could get re-elected, she might even be forced out in her first term of office. But I don't want to see the damage her presidency would do to this country if she were elected, or the chaos that would result in her forced resignation.
