Skip to comments.Clinton Tells Wellesley, "Let's Roll Up Our Sleeves" [Barf Alert]
Posted on 11/01/2007 2:06:43 PM PDT by indcons
Hillary Clinton reached out to young women voters in an emotional return today to her alma mater, Wellesley College, where she said that “in so many ways, this all-women’s college prepared me to compete in the all-boys’ club of presidential politics.”
It was Mrs. Clinton’s first visit to the school as a presidential candidate, and she chose it as the place to launch an aggressive drive to attract more women to what she is underscoring as her historic candidacy. Mrs. Clinton’s campaign is increasingly counting on women, who made up 54 percent of the electorate in 2004, to help propel her into the White House.
“So let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work together,” Mrs. Clinton told the cheering, standing-room-only crowd of more than 1,000 students in Wellesley’s Alumnae Hall. “We’re ready to shatter that highest glass ceiling.”
Many of the women wore T-shirts that proclaimed: “I can be president, too.”
Mrs. Clinton made no mention of the attacks on her by the male candidates in the Democratic presidential debate in Philadelphia on Tuesday night, or of the “The Politics of Pile-on” video with clips from the debate that is now playing on her Web site. But the theme of her remarks at Wellesley, one of the “Seven Sisters” of all-women colleges that remains all female, was that women have always had to fight discrimination, and still do.

I wonder why! /Snicker
She majored in lap-licking with a minor in socialism.
I wonder if she meant “knickers”
The Beast wants it both ways as always - she wants to run with The Big Boys yet be inoculated from any criticism, hell, even any tough questioning. How does she plan to deal with the enemies of this nation? Her victim-role-playing ain't gonna fly on the world stage.
Hillary still hasn’t made public her senior thesis on Saul Alinsky, right?
Left wing feminist haven...........
That’s a variation of Bill’s request to Wellesley that they ‘roll up their nickers’.
LOL....funniest reply and closest to the truth.
I bet it did LOL.
Bill Clinton wrote he was attracted to the beast in these years “cause she let
him in into threesomes with her”
A neighbor’s daughter went to Wellesley College - she didn’t even want to spend weekends there because the ‘girl friends’ were so aggressive. We attended a couple of events to be with her when the parents couldn’t make it. It was hard to believe many of the students were really female but they sure thought a lot of themselves. Lots of brains, very little sense.
Thanks for that info - I wasn’t aware of it. An online article I saw from this past March indicates it is still not public.
Oh man....ribs splitting; I even notice that I made a comment back then.
I think straight women are in the minority at Wellesley. My neighbor’s daughter lasted half a semester, It wasn’t the lesbians that bothered her, he was the intolerance of her straightness.
Just another stage in the “Those EVIL MEN are attacking me! Boo-hoo!” Campaign...
ANYTHING to take the glaring light over her debate f-up from the other night...
almost all attendees of wellsley are lesbians...
the piaps was really suggesting they all get down and roll up the carpets!!!!
Not officially, but electronic copies abound in PDF format. You can Google for it.
Let’s put it this way, Hillary.
You ain’t breaking the glass or marble ceiling.
Yes, please do roll up your sleeves and stuff them in your mouth.
Well, if she really wants to “attract more women”, Wellesley is certainly an effective place to do it! (Though Bryn Mawr has a bit more of a reputation for having lots of women who are attracted to other women.)
