Does Katie Couric's Stumble Signal Hillary Clinton's Fall?

You can tell me all the reasons it’s wrong, misguided, and unfair – that Katie is only one woman, what about Diane Sawyer, what about the quality of her show, thank you very much, or experience, and why should all women be judged by her, especially women, of whom there are more than a few, to judge by the ratings, who prefer their news from someone else, who happens to be male, at least – but here’s the kicker.

It doesn’t matter.

Not when the bottom line is: we just aren’t ready for a woman. Then she’s just one of us. Whether she or we asked for it. And failing because of it.

SNIP

Why do more people watch NBC than CBS?

SNIP

Which raises the even more difficult question. Knowing what she’s up against, knowing that we’re being judged, whether we like it or not, what’s a woman to do?

Watch Katie?

Support Hillary?

Knowing what’s at stake, not just for her but for us, knowing her failure becomes our failure whether we like it or want it or not (America just wasn’t ready, and if America wasn’t ready, why should your workplace/family/community be),

Does that give you an interest in her success as well?

SNIP

But you won’t be able to say that about Hillary.

Once she takes her first stumble, makes her first mistake, one bump in the polls, and the first guy comes out and says – there it is: America wasn’t ready....

I don't watch Katie because I really think she is very biased.
I won't vote for Mrs. Clinton because I believe she is an enabeler of a rapist pervert. And the two Clintons have conspired to have many folks killed to further their power.

Now, I'd pay to see Diane Sawyer's colon scope procedure!

Katie = cooking segments.

She probably shouldn't have stayed at Today so long, if she wanted the 6:30 chair.

She may be 'puckish' but surely neither 'smart, attractive' nor 'hip'

The perky one is so yesterday's news. She is getting old, loosing her looks, gaining weight and is gaining speed on the down side of the arch of fame.

It won't be long before people will be saying, Who?.

Monica says that the whole Clinton Administration left a bad taste in her mouth!

OK OK old joke! But true.
