Will women vote for Hillary Clinton only because she's a woman?
That question keeps getting bounced around and I've recently revised my answer from "no" to "yes."
That is, yes, women will vote for Clinton because she's a woman if men target her as a woman.
Translation: Gentlemen, if you don't want another Clinton in the White House, do not say unkind things about her persona, demeanor, appearance even if bull's-eye true. Not even in your own kitchen with your own wife.
Women have radar for anti-woman sentiments and all guys have them to some degree. Blame Mom, if you haven't already. And no one has benefited more from being a victim than the candidate formerly known as Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The truth is, Clinton might not be a senator from New York if not for her victimization as first spouse. How soon we forget the circumstances of her rise to power. It may be arguable that Clinton is a good-enough senator that's not the point but it is inarguable that she won the office in 2000 because women rallied around her.
Overall, women voted for Clinton over Republican Rep. Rick Lazio 60 percent to 39 percent. In upstate New York, typically a Republican stronghold, women voted for Clinton 55 percent to 43 percent.
And that rally had as much to do with Clinton the Victim as Clinton the Candidate. Throughout their White House years, the worse Bill behaved, the better Hillary looked. All women, without exception, could relate to her position and could admire her classy handling of the situation.

Risky? The body count suggests it’s life-threatening!
Try, "No one has victimized others more and benefited from it than Hillary Rodham Clinton."
"All women"? I've never met or known 1 woman that thought this way or gave her this sympathy in passing conversation.
"without exception"? I know and talk to a lot of honest women. Real women.
Run Hillaryous Run!
Hillary has already proven that she needs a babysitter called Bubba and various campaign staff to stand up for her when SHE makes a mistake.
Are women proud of the way Hillary's Bimbo Eruption Squad destroyed the lives of those that Bill preyed upon? Is this considered a "classy handling" of her husband's paramours?
Once upon a time, my mother hoped Thatcher would win the UK election simply because Mrs Thatcher was female. Today, she supports Hillary out of the same reason.
Her mother, my grandmother, gave her political support to any male politician she thought of as ‘handsome’.
There is a difference between them both, but not a major one.
I don’t believe it. This is just a scam piece running in the press.
And I would be wary of pikcing on Hillary just because you never know what kind of disease you’d end up with.
Parker is dead on correct, and Rush Limbaugh agrees. Many women are offended by personal attacks on women by men, even when the attacks are well founded. This matters because elections are not simply about about being right, but are about getting enough votes to run the country.
The way to deal with the protectiveness of women toward Hillary is to avoid uncharitable references to her or her person. Instead, state the claim as a policy issue and as differences with Senator Clinton.
This kind of genial, good natured approach works. The Reagan we saw in his speech in 1964 for Goldwater was angry in tone. This was firewater for conservatives, but not appealing for others. The Reagan we saw in 1980 and after was ever courteous, optimistic in tone, and rare to anger.
We ignore Parker’s advice and Reagan’s example at our peril.
I've pseudo-blogged this ghastly excuse for a women until I've, frankly, grown sick of it-- the lies, the spin, the acolytes ( she has no friends ) basking in her reflected glory.
Click the picture, and scroll back, for all, and more than, you ever wanted to know about The Lady MacBeth from Little Rock:
I am constantly amazed at how "thin skinned" we have become as a nation. Any criticism is called a personal, racial ,ethnic or ( large umbrella) mean spirited attack.
It's not even feminization anymore, I know alot of strong women who are feminine. The left has succeeded in neutering the American Spirit.
If a politician can't take criticism then he , she or IT can't be trusted with the security of this nation, the nuclear codes or even a checking account.
