    So, America, are you really ready for a woman president? And how might “magical thinking” or a fresh scandal flip this election on its head? These are just some of the undercurrent issues that Kim Campbell, the only female prime minister Canada’s ever had, thinks could tip Hillary Clinton’s lead in favor of Donald Trump. In this condensed and edited conversation, the former Progressive Conservative party leader weighs in on what might upend this year’s U.S. presidential battle. OZY: What under-the-radar issues could really shake up this race and become major debate points this fall? Kim Campbell: I think the...

    MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews remarked that Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s gender is “a big part of even today” and that she’ll be “hounded by a bunch of guys” during MSNBC’s coverage of her testimony before the Benghazi Select Committee on Thursday.

    Hillary Clinton fired back at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday after he accused her of playing the "gender card" during her presidential campaign. "Wow," Clinton told HuffPost during a Facebook question-and-answer session. "If that’s what he said, Mitch McConnell really doesn’t get it. There is a gender card being played in this campaign. It’s played every time Republicans vote against giving women equal pay, deny families access to affordable child care or family leave, refuse to let women make decisions about their health or have access to free contraception." McConnell criticized Clinton at an event at the...

    We now know the official Obama talking point on Lipstick-gate. In the course of her Morning Joe appearance today, Obama spokeswoman Linda Douglass used the word "ridiculous" no fewer than six times to dismiss the controversy that has arisen since Obama said yesterday that you can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig.

    The contest for the Democratic nomination is being largely portrayed as an historic confrontation between the first ever electorally-credible African American and the first ever electorally-credible woman running for president of the US. That in itself is sufficient to warrant blanket coverage, consuming interest and at times hysterical commentary on what is without question an unprecedented contest. However, all of the coverage is missing what is most fascinating about this race. It is not the biographies of the two remaining Democratic candidates, or the number of voters who have been energised by the primary process, but the way in which...

    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...

    Gender Up Ender I'll admit I didn't watch the Democratic debates the other night, it's not that I'm not interested, it's just that the field right now is so crowded with people who have about as much chance of being president as they do of winning the lottery. I think the early primaries are a good thing as it narrows the field down to the people who are actually going to run and gives them more time to actually state their opinions on issues and less time to hide behind platitudes and inanities. But I digress getting back to the...

North Bergen, N.J. **** We saw eight years of this when her husband was president, do we really want to see it again? Hazlet, N.J. **** If Clinton does well in a debate, she's victorious and presidential. If she does poorly, she's a victim. That's the kind of leadership America needs.

    When we were kids, my brother and I used to always get our butts whipped by my dad for hitting my sister, LeVita. As the only girl at the time, she would run to Daddy and tell him we hit her. So, believing his baby girl, he took it out on us. But one day he was at the kitchen table and watched us play in the front yard and his eyes lit up. He saw his baby girl hit me and Reggie, and when we hit back, she ran screaming into the house to tell him the usual tale....

    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is looking for sympathy, support and political cover as her rivals show the temerity to run aggressively against the Democratic presidential front-runner. But don't feel sorry for her — Clinton is no stranger to "piling on." In fact, she's an expert at it. Ask anybody who stood on the marble floor of the state Capitol rotunda in 1990 and heard the click, clack, click of her low-heeled shoes approach the news conference of Tom McRae, a mild-mannered public servant who had the nerve to challenge then-Gov. Bill Clinton of Arkansas for re-election. "Tom!" the state's first...

    Pelosi: Clinton Camp Played Gender Card Nation's First Female Speaker Says Perception of 'All-Boys' Club' May Be Exploited By RICK KLEIN Nov. 5, 2007 — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, R-Calif., said Monday that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., hasn't been treated differently because she's the only woman in the presidential race, but added that her campaign appears to have been trying to exploit that perception in the wake of last week's Democratic debate. Pelosi, the nation's first female House speaker, told in an interview that she didn't agree with observers who thought Clinton was drawing particular heat because she's...

    Hillary Clinton reached out to young women voters in an emotional return today to her alma mater, Wellesley College, where she said that “in so many ways, this all-women’s college prepared me to compete in the all-boys’ club of presidential politics.” It was Mrs. Clinton’s first visit to the school as a presidential candidate, and she chose it as the place to launch an aggressive drive to attract more women to what she is underscoring as her historic candidacy. Mrs. Clinton’s campaign is increasingly counting on women, who made up 54 percent of the electorate in 2004, to help propel...

    Sen. Hillary Clinton told a TV audience of 3 million women yesterday that the nation has "never had a mother" be President. Appearing on "The View" to push the 10th anniversary reissue of her book "It Takes a Village," Clinton chatted about family Christmases and raising kids these days. The former First Lady noted, "We've never had a mother who ever ran for or held that position." Clinton also acknowledged that the concept of electing a female President is "such a leap of faith." The senator, considered the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, raised the issue after conceding this...
