Bill comes to Hillary's defense, insists she's not 'manly'
The Examiner ^ | July 19, 2007 | Bill Sammon

Posted on 07/19/2007 3:53:16 PM PDT by xtinct

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."

A "real" leader doesn't need her husband to come to her defense everytime someone calls her "poopy pants."

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?

It's funny how both of the candidate's spouses are doing their spouses' dirty work.

Bill Clinton and Elizabeth Edwards should just run for President themselves and get it over with.

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.

"I DON'T THINK SHE'S TRYING TO BE A MAN"...

When Bill says something like this, you have to understand the proper context in which he uses the word "trying". (SHE IS A MAN, BABY!)

She’s jealous of all the women he had sex with and desires to do the same. What plans does she have for the the creative use of the side hallway near the oval orifice and the nearby sink?

If I’m not mistaken, the “traveling exhibit” from the Smithsonian has a great collection of some of the historical clothing our First Ladies wore at one time or another. It has all of these gorgeous ball gowns, Abigail Adams’ yellow “dancing shoes” and some of the cool clothes Jackie Kennedy wore, etc.

And then it has ‘The Beast’s’ green pantsuit which was the predecessor to ‘Old Crusty,’ her black pantsuit, LOL!

I’m sure Eleanor Roosevelt’s sensible, orthopedic clodhoppers are in there, too. ;)

I’m no “fashionista” myself, but Jeeze Louise! If that’s not a statement, I don’t know what is.

I will admit though, that ‘She Who Shall Not Be Named’ looked nearly human in that midnight blue gown she wore for her (pseudo) husband’s first Inaugural Ball.

Must’ve been a body double. ;)

Training Camp starts soon for both Badgers and Packers. Wa-Hoo! Time for a Road Trip to Green Bay, methinks! I haven’t hugged a Packer since I got to hug Reggie White way back when. Good Golly, that man was a HOUSE, LOL! We miss him every day. :(

Brett is amazingly big, too. 6’4”? (I’m 5’1”)

That was a purely political statement if ever I saw one!

Hillary is one of the most "manly" women around, as Bill well knows!

No wonder their marriage has been so blissful.

Hitlery is ALL woman and the cigar chaser would never, ever consider being unfaithful to the woman he loves.

Who was the comic that talked about Bubba Jeff and said (paraphrasing) "This guy was over 6 ft in high school! Was he on the O-line? No! He chose to join the band and wear the fuzzy hat!"?

I'm really put off by the remarks made by many of the posters to this thread. Name calling and cheap insinuations will only serve to marginalize Free Republic. Kindly confine your comments to the issue at hand: Whether or not Hillary Clinton is worthy to serve as Commander in Chief. Elizabeth Edwards was saying that Hillary should pay more attention to women's issues instead of the war and the military.

Making libelous statements about Hillary's sexual proclivities only serves to bring the whole forum down to the level of moveon.org. We'll never be considered a serious medium until members learn to post responsibly.
