At the end of the Civil War, but before the pernicious reach of Jim Crow undermined the Union Armys battlefield victory, former slaves and free blacks found themselves in possession of a most precious right -- the right to vote.
It didnt matter if a man had been a war hero in the famed, all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment or a house servant on a Southern plantation. All that mattered was that he was a man.
To say that this development didnt sit well with the progressive-minded women of this country is an understatement. Before the war, the abolitionist movement and the suffragist movement had been fused at the hip -- or so women believed. They werent allied causes so much as they were the same cause, demanded in the same lecture halls by the same people in the same speeches.
After four years of burying their husbands, fathers, and sons -- the Union men whod donned their countrys blue uniforms and sang John Browns Hymn as they marched to the killing fields -- American women thought they had earned some consideration. They thought they had earned the right to be heard, the right to vote, and the right to hold political office.
When this assumption was proven wrong -- when Frederick Douglass, of all people -- figuratively patted them on their heads and said in essence, Not now, little lady, not yet. Your time will come, they couldnt have felt more disillusioned.
Betrayal by the men who had made The Battle Hymn of the Republic the unofficial national song -- its lyrics written by a woman -- had lasting repercussions in the nations collective female consciousness. One of them was the idea that war is rarely the answer....

BOOK CLAIMS HILLARY HEALTH PROBLEMS MORE SERIOUS... DEVELOPING...
Hillary’s nomination will galvanize the Democrat base, while Jeb’s nomination will demoralize the Republican base.
Just a headline at the moment...
well she will win if the Republicans run Romney again - which I’ve heard at least some of them want to do.
Chelsea’s not old enough to run, is she? What to do, what to do?
Conclusion: Hillary is only going to serve 1 day over 1/2 of a term, and the mayor of San Antonio will take over and serve 10 years.
Our culture dictates our politics, and we’re screwed. Blame it on what you will...media and schools for me, but regardless...it is a good time to be old.
I’m going to paraphrase a very telling statement made by another writer:
The danger to America is not Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man or woman like him or her with the Presidency.
It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama or Hillary Clinton presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such persons for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama or Mrs. Clinton, who are mere symptoms of what ails America. Blaming the prince or princess of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that will make them their prince or princess.
The Republic can survive a Barack Obama or Hillary, who are, after all, merely fools. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who will make him or her their president.
Hillary is NOT going to be the DEM ‘16b nominee and Jebbie shan’t be the GOP ‘16 nominee !
This is just utter garbage and a replay of ‘06 & ‘07 when it was going to be Hillary V.Rudy.....PERIOD!
Presidente Castro? Has a certain ring to it, like a death knell for the Republic.
Th Chels will be 35+, come ‘16,so yes,she will be old enough to run,but she won’t.
Still no article linked.
Just that headline...
No,Julian Castro will probably be the ‘16 DEM nominee.
Allow me to opine on two points
“the Obama mystique has faded somewhat”
The ‘Obama mystique’, to put it nicely, is in the crapper. Has this beta male turd-shuffler looked at the polls? He’s imploding. Even personally, people think the man is a jackass.
“More than a century later, Nancy Pelosi had those words — and the words of others — in her mind when she became the first female House speaker.”
Yes, the first female House Speaker... more collagen implants and polyurethane parts than female, but I take the point. What of course is not mentioned is that Pelosi went on to lose the House majority in the biggest shellacking since 1938. She now has no prospect of ever being the speaker again, period. What a loser.
The writer is an idiot. It’s another one of those America must purge it’s collective conscience by voting for the first female president spin pieces. Women are owed the presidency according to the idiot Mr. Cannon. No mention of Hillary’s political contributions. No surprise there. I have no problem voting for a female president. I just don’t want to vote for this particular female. Simply voting for someone due to their race and gender should never be the first consideration in deciding on a particular political candidate, but that’s all that matters to the Democrats, and unfortunately we’re finding that out the hard way.
Really great point!
However, I think this sort of speculation is part of her being canonized in the church of the left. Her ego will allow nothing as trivial is POTUS.
