Skip to comments.Clinton: Female president would send right signal
Posted on 06/22/2013 3:48:03 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Hillary Rodham Clinton mused aloud about the significance of America electing its first female president. Left unsaid: whether she might try again to be the one.
In a video of a private Clinton speech posted to YouTube on Friday, Clinton told a Canadian audience that she hoped the U.S. would elect a woman to the White House because it would send exactly the right historical signal to men, women and children. She said women in politics need to dare to compete and the nation needs to take that leap of faith.
Let me say this, hypothetically speaking, I really do hope that we have a woman president in my lifetime, Clinton said at a womens conference in Toronto on Thursday night. And whether its next time or the next time after that, it really depends on women stepping up and subjecting themselves to the political process, which is very difficult.
The former secretary of state told the cheering audience that she would certainly vote for the right woman to be president.

We need a leader, not a symbol. We have a symbol right now.
How is that working out?
Unless the woman happens to be a conservative. Then she can be insulted to every level imaginable and liberals consider that to be a good thing.
Mus-il-0bummer is surrounding himself w/females for a reason. I still wouldn’t put it past him to not step down. Who would force him out of the whitehouse? Hmm?
Or a porn star! That is a truly symbolic.
Vince Foster and the Ambassador have YET to be heard from.
We sent a historical message when we elected the POS now occupying the White House.
We don’t need any more historical messages, we need competence, honesty, patriotism and a love for America as the land of the Free.
We certainly don’t need Whitewater, Benghazi, FBI papers, Bull Dyke, Jew hating, Liberal, Feminist, Lying sack of crap to follow the spiteful, arrogant narcissist, racist we got slammed with for the last two elections.
I think to send fully right signal it has to be also black, gay, single parent, disabled and intellectually challenged non-citizen on welfare!
The world will more America even more.
will more=will love
“Left unsaid: whether she might try again to be the one. “
Does a bear...
It’s been her goal since 1963.
Was going to add a comment but yours is perfection and I can’t improve on that.
Well yeah, let’s elect a woman because we need to send the right signal. After all, electing the first black president has turned out so well.
For Hitlery, it is all about the genitalia and a perverted devotion to fascism.
I prefer a person who embraces freedom.
I like that...
All the dogs that portrayed Lassie on screen were male (first one was Rudd Weatherwax’s dog “Pal”). Shoulda called the dog “Laddie”.
So we have a black, then a female then a gay or lesbian. Sending the right signal to who? the arrogant idiots are more concerened with what you are then who you are. It is evident in the rot in DC.
I believe that’s true, but the character portrayed was female.
With West, Cruz and a few other Conservatives. Burn the Demonrats.
This “sending signals” crap is the stuff of the Burson-Marsteller public relations firm. Substance matters not. It’s all about sending signals. To whom? To what end? We are the freaking United States of America! What the hell do we care about sending signals?
I remember in about 1984 pondering with my hunting buddies what was going to happen to our country after Reagan’s second term. It’s way worse than we pondered!
What kind of signal was sent in electing a negro with little experience?
Signal? Signal to whom? Who listens to Hillary Clinton’s dog whistle of sexist self-interest? Oh, just any woman, right? The time is right for ovaries in the Oval Office, right? Maybe we should choose more functional ones if so.
Sarah Palin’s a woman, moreso than Hillary Clinton, who seems to have internalized a great deal of stereotypically negative masculine behavior that she herself would excoriate in actual males.
So, maybe Hillary’s just not quite woman enough to qualify under her own criteria.
The election of the Obamanation sent a signal all right: Don’t elect a lazy, left-wing, dishonest community agitator just because he’d be the first black president. Hillary’s election would signal: Don’t elect a left-wing, dishonest, intemperate, lazy wife of an ex-president just because she’d be the first woman president.
How about sending a signal that ability, experience and values matter? As a bonus, choosing the best possible president in 2016 would send a "diversity" signal that liberals are supposed to care about.
Her hubby told her to say this and that is why I reference the bent one.
So.....Hillary is voting for Sarah Palin ?
Because Hillary sure isn’t talking about herself....there is no leadership from a cuckolded wife
Clinton is a lying evil beast who has shown she doesn’t have the character or integrity to handle the 3 a.m. phone call.
My thoughts exactly. Palin would be a much better choice for a female president.
It’s not what’s between your legs, you dumba**ed Klintoon moron, it’s what’s between your ears, and you ain’t got it there!
take that leap of faith.
Not working out for the US — and it hasn’t been the a full 8 yrs...then again, there might not be a US to elect a president in 2016 — if the Immigration problem isn’t dealt with - the O Administration isn’t impeached - and those responsible for the murder of 4 US Citizens jailed to “SEND a message to men, women, and children that if you get elected by fraud, place czars in positions where they commit crimes against the Republic, and campaign during a national security crisis instead of dealing with it as a leader — this is what happens - YOU GO TO PRISON after being convicted of treason against the nation after swearing an oath to protect it...Clinton should watch what she’s asking for...
Yeah, let us know when you find one, Hillary.
What signal- that the end is here?
The left is hypocritical. They had their chance to push for a female president in Condi Rice. But Rice was on Bush’s side, so they trashed her.
When the left stops being hypocritical I’ll start listening to them. (never)
After picking the most embarrassing insulting incompetant U. S. hating first (half) Black president we could have, she now hopes we’ll pick the most embarrassing insulting incompetant U. S. hating first woman president we could, namely her.
Thank you very much.
“Hillary Rodham Clinton mused aloud about the significance of America electing its first female president.”
Whatever happened to the concept of America electing its BEST CANDIDATE?”
First Halfrican American (p)resident. Man did that send the “right” signal! Sadly, the didiots our there are all forgiving of the atrocities these asshats have perp’d on us. Now, the U.S. lovin’ folks? No forgiveness for anything. Even if they didn’t do anything wrong. The didiots will make something up and it’ll stick.
We don't need no stinkin' Progressive Lesbian in the White House....again.
I am sick and tired of media types lauding HC saying that she so intelligent. There is no evidence to support their claims. She is a humorless, unremarkable women who wears size 38 mens trousers who married a crafty, unscrupulous politician and then put up with his peccadilloes just so she could become a carpetbagger Senator in New York. During her tenure as Secretary of State, the world has gone up in flames due to her breathtakingly weak and incompetent management of that office. And, did I say that she wears size 38 mens pants?
What symbol, that America isn’t sexist? Who says America is sexist except commie libs?
Pray for America to Wake Up
We will have a female president one day, but it will never be that 70 year battle-axe. Does she actually think those Southern white democrats (the one’s that love their guns and bibles) will vote for her after she came out for queer “marriage”? Ain’t happening.
Hillary’s Perfect Campaign Slogan
A joke that writes itself.
We need a Constitutional Administrator. We can do our own leading.
