Americans Are Ready for a Female President. Finally.
The Daily Beast ^ | May 4 ,2013 | Eleanor Clift

Posted on 05/04/2013 5:42:08 PM PDT by Hojczyk

A new poll from Emily’s List shows an overwhelming number of voters now support the idea. It’s a movement the group hopes someone in the sisterhood is about to inherit.

Stephanie Schriock, president of Emily’s List, which raises money and works to elect pro-choice Democratic women, said she has no inside knowledge of what Clinton is likely to do, but there is widespread acceptance of a woman as president, and 72 percent of voters surveyed think it’s likely to happen in 2016. While Clinton gets mentioned most, there’s no guarantee she will run, which is why Emily’s List wants to “ignite the conversation” around an idea whose time has come, and build a movement that Clinton or another in the sisterhood can inherit.

We already have a gay President.

Who would have thought we would have had one of those before a female President?

Eleanor Clift :What can I say about this woman.

For years she Jilled off at night dreaming of Bill Clinton, Now she uses Barrack Obama, Looks like she wants to switch to Hillary.

Sorry Eleanor if we are ready for a woman President we want one that isn’t sleeping with a Muslim lady.

Cankles Clinton is not fit or qualified to be President. She was a lousy SOS and she is unhealthy. Five years from now she will be in even worse shape. She would also be as corrupt and leftist as Obama.

My commie English professor used to say there would be a black man and a gay man president before there would be a woman. Personally, Ai want the best qualified, doesn’t matter male or female.

When Bill Clinton was President they said he had a colonoscopy performed and they found Eleanor Clift’s

I would welcome a woman president, with three conditions.

1- NO ONE from "Emily's List". They are radical abortion promoters.

2- It must be a constitutional conservative woman.

3- Let's not have a repeat of the Obama phenomenon, when people vote for anyone just because they're a black/woman/whatever.

Hillary vs. Palin. If you’re going to get a woman, vote for the hot one. I think Nikki Haley would be better though.

I think she’d be 10x worse, if she was POTUS, instead of 0scumbag.

No. Big “Sistah” Hillary will not pass up the chance to RULE over this country. In her testimony, she grabbed control of the discourse early on with her histrionics; became another person with the “goggle” glasses. As they did during the Clinton Assministration, lies and obfuscations were the order of the day in Benghazi. - Gag me with a spoon. - People aren’t able to connect the dots between Hillary’s brand of Socialism and the Marxist’s brand of Socialism. Consequently, we’ll probably get stuck, by hook or crook with Hillary. - See, she’s EARNED it.

There is widespread acceptance of a woman as president, that’s not a problem at all. The problem for the D’s will be to find a candidate without H’s heavy “baggage”

To the True Believers, it doesn’t so much matter that it’s a female, as long as it’s a female Communist they believe they can get elected.

And the superior minds of the female subspecies will gladly comply - although, not gladly enjoy their inclusion in the Muslim harems, nor the Party’s possession of their children.

Or maybe they will. Maybe that’s what women really want, and the vote was the way to get it.

Most Republicans were hoping for a woman to run last election. It wasn’t because of what she had between her legs but what she has between her ears.

To: Hojczyk; All

Elanor Clift seems to be overlooking that liberals like to inflate support statistics for their socialist policies to try to make it look like their policies are actually supported by the majority. After all, Obama had said that 90% of Americans were interested in gun control after the Senate had failed to pass its gun control legislation. But I think that 90% of Americans were either against or unconcerned about the legislation.

Also, the emphasis on a female president sidesteps the federal government’s constitutonally limited powers. In fact, one of the only powers that the feds have to regulate intrastate commerce is to regulate the US mail service, Clause 7 of Section 8 of Article I. In fact, the Founding States had arguably intended for presidents to be spending as much time on the golf course as Obama has to keep from getting bored if the country wasn’t fighing a war.

No pictures of Eleanor Clift.

She’s almost as ghastly as Helen Thomas.

Hell yes, why not? White men have done such a horrible job of developing and running this country we should try one of everybody. Fortunately we got three out of the way with Obama, (muslim, African-American, gay). After the woman, lets try a Hispanic, Asian American, Native American, Transgender.

We are checking off white guilt boxes. The black one is done, the woman one is up next. Then maybe the Hispanic one or the gay/lesbian one will come after that.
