Sen. Clinton Touts Woman for President

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.

Since Mr. Rupbert has been kissing the slimy hag's bottom half, FNC has gone to the lizzys....I don't have FNC and if I did, I wouldn't watch it....it is to much like CNN....I can't believe any woman in her right mind would want that creepy slimy thing representing womanhood anywhere, and that includes the crapper...

And I can't believe any man is going to loose his manhood to let that lizzy run for the highest office in the land....

I may be way off, but I'm starting to think all the liberal yipping and all the conservative grumbling about a possible run by HRC is doing the job that needs to be done. I mean, we've basically been hearing that she would be running for years now. When she finally announces, no one will really care anymore because it's old news. Everyone who's going to vote has an opinion of HRC, but the only ones who seem to really believe in her are a contingent of the Dems--not all of them--and the media who love her, and are so childish they need novelty to give them ideas about stories.

A HRC run is the most boring, predictable story of the 2008 race. I just don't see the Dems allowing her to get the nomination.

Another New Yorker found......

What are Bob Spencer's chances challenging Hillary in the Senate race this year? Has Hillary's NYC base been eroded since 9/11?

Let's just say that the polls have Hillary at 60% or over, and our dear John Spencer around 20% or so. She's a hit in NYC.

I think the Republicans ought to go for the ultimate "2 for 1" presidency: Lynn and Dick Cheney! Yes, let's nominate Lynn Cheney for President and get Dick as the first husband! That would just about do it to the libs...

Thanks Victoria. I know from family that she's not a hit in upstate......just hoping a couple boroughs would change their direction.

(Sorry for the mistake...I read Robert Spencer too.)
