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.

I suppose to the vulgar that watch "the view" with the Vulgar host Rosie, do get a warm and fuzzy watching Hillary talk about Motherhood.
PIAPS needs the Oprah vote.
She already has the lesbians behind her.
"We've never had a mother who ever ran for or held that position."
There will be one, one day.
But please Lord ....
Sadly, Mrs. Kirkpatrick passed away recently.
She would have been a fantastic POTUS.
I don't know a mother I want in the Oval Office, and I especially do not want Hillary in the Oval office!
Been away from FR for a while - is PIAPS in the Freepctionary?
Also, would it be just as bad for me to vote against her because she's a woman as it would be for the demo she's going for to vote for her just because she's a woman?
Probably, but I'd vote against her because she's a power mad Marxist, not because she's a woman.
This passage from Atlas Shrugged sums up Hillary:
"She had pale eyes that looked fishy, cold and dead. And if you ever want to see pure evil, you should have seen the way her eyes glinted when she watched some man who'd talked back to her once and who'd just heard his name on the list of those getting nothing above basic pittance. And when you saw it, you saw the real motive of any person who's ever preached the slogan: 'From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.'"
This is an obvious slap at Condoleeza Rice, who is unmarried with no children.
Hillary! must surely think the American public is a bunch of gullible idiots, otherwise she wouldn't try to peddle this phony motherly act, and expect people to vote for her because of it. Sadly, however, some people will. It makes me want to vomit.
However, electing Hillary would be a leap into the abyss.
Not to mention Carol Mosely Braun who has a son and ran in the Dem primaries in 2000....
Haha...Rush was right on when he said for some reason Hillary keeps talking about being a "mom".
Your passage from Atlas Shrugged describes Hitlery better than anything I've read in a very long time!
Some clever freeper should figure a way to get that comparison out in public so that everyone sees!
Well, since her husband was the first "mofo"... (or second, if you count Carter)
I am a woman, and a Mother, and I don't think there is a woman(and very few men) alive that has the "balls" (excuse that crude term) that has what it takes to protect this country as Commander and Chief.
That show reminded me of a pen full of hogs.
pig in a pantsuit
Not very nice I know...but
MOMMY PRESIDENT~~ Yeah, that's the ticket.
