Sen. Hillary Clinton told a TV audience of 3 million women yesterday that the nation has "never had a mother" be President. Appearing on "The View" to push the 10th anniversary reissue of her book "It Takes a Village," Clinton chatted about family Christmases and raising kids these days.
The former First Lady noted, "We've never had a mother who ever ran for or held that position."
Clinton also acknowledged that the concept of electing a female President is "such a leap of faith."
The senator, considered the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, raised the issue after conceding this week she didn't know if the country was ready for a female President, but added, "We need to try."
Clinton spent most of her time on "The View" talking about the difficulties of parenting - topics that play well with the show's 3 million-strong audience of women 18 to 49.
A recent Emily's List survey found younger women and moms were a key segment of voters who defected from the GOP last month and could go Democratic in 2008.
"I think it's harder and harder to navigate the world as a young parent," Clinton said, commiserating with the hosts over the dangers of Internet predators, TV violence and video games.
Offering a warmer side of herself, the senator seen by some as cold and calculating talked about the Clinton holiday ritual of church on Christmas Eve, decorating the tree, then opening presents in the morning.

Good Lord ! ... No BARF Alert?
23 different women have run for President , starting with Victoria Woodhull(equal rights party) in 1872, to Cathy Gordon Brown (Independent Party) 2000.
Hillary isn't that bright, she probably doesn't know History too well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_female_United_States_presidential_and_vice-presidential_candidates
More to the point--Hillary represents the crowd that has been slamming motherhood for the last 30 years.
Can you say "Hypocrite?"
Every woman who wants to be elected pulls this "We need a woman" crap. If we did need a woman, it sure as heck wouldn't be Hillary the Snake.
If a Woman runs, they sure shouldn't form a sexist stance like Hillary.
Hillary knows every move she is making... these days. Every bit of it is all planned out.
A quote comes to mind.....something like "I could've stayed home baking cookies, but I decided to make something of myself."
