WASHINGTON (Map, News) - Insisting his wife is not "manly," former President Bill Clinton defended Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton Thursday against a rival Democrat's charge that she tends to "behave as a man."
"I don't think she's trying to be a man," Bill Clinton said on ABC's Good Morning America. "I don't think it's inconsistent with being a woman that you can also be knowledgeable on military and security affairs and be strong when the occasion demands it.
"I don't consider that being manly," he added. "I consider that being a leader."
The former president was responding to remarks by Elizabeth Edwards, wife of former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, who is challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. In a backhanded compliment, Elizabeth Edwards commiserated with Hillary Clinton's desire to appear as masculine as powerful men.
"You want to reassure them you're as good as a man and sometimes you feel you have to behave as a man and not talk about women's issues," she told Salon, the liberal online magazine. "I'm sympathetic - she wants to be commander in chief. But she's just not as vocal a women's advocate as I want to see. John is."

“She’s so cute when she pees standing up. Really.”
Or his wife... * cough * Edwards * cough *
Though this is hilarious that Clinton feels the need to address this. Even more hilarious is that Edwards needed his momma to come out and defend him.
I don’t think the question is: Is she manly? I think the question is: Is she a dyke?
Not a he, not a she, must be an it.
>>>I dont think the question is: Is she manly? I think the question is: Is she a dyke?
I don’t think there is any question about it!
. But she’s just not as vocal a women’s advocate as I want to see. John is.”
Guess John isn’t too manly, eh?
Bill Clinton and Elizabeth Edwards should just run for President themselves and get it over with.
Well there is Chelsea Hubble.
For someone who is pretty much on her deathbed, this Edwards broad really gets around and picks a lot of fights with people.
Shhh - nobody's supposed to know
What does Bill know about “manly”?
Ooooo—that’s what I always thought.
Who, Hillshepsut, the Queen/Pharoah, wife of Ramthis?? Just because she wears a beard behind closed doors doesn’t mean a thing... It’s the Great Pyramid Scheme she and her husband are foisting on us that bothers me. And if she is not stopped soon, we’ll all be watching her as she barges down the Potomac to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Then, just to show her who’s boss, he kicked her in the balls.
Heh, how would he know, he’s never around her.
here`s the litmus test:
DOES SHE LIKE WOMEN ?
