  • Kirsten Powers (v.2): "An Element of Sexism" In Questioning Hillary Clinton's Health

    KIRSTEN POWERS, CNN: I guess I have to ask why is there any concern about her health? And the only reason there is any concern about her health is because Donald Trump has sort of started his trutherism on Hillary Clinton's health. There's nothing to suggest she doesn't have stamina. I mean, honestly, I don't even know if I could do the schedule that she keeps. There's nothing to suggest that she has any kind of problems with her stamina, with her health, with her mental health. CAMEROTA: Well, she had that fall. I mean, this is the thing. She...

    Feminist icon Gloria Steinem said Friday that she believes Hillary Clinton's low favorability ratings are at least partially due to her being a woman. She said that isn't the only reason the Democratic nominee has hit her lowest approval ratings in 24 years, but the subliminal connections associated with her and her womanhood affect public perception. "As children, most of us are raised by women, so we may tend to associate female authority with childhood. We see it as emotional, overwhelming, perhaps inappropriate to public life, not rational enough," Steinem told the Hollywood Reporter. "You can see that in some...

    As far as ABC’s Cokie Roberts is concerned, Donald Trump attacking Hillary Clinton as “unhinged” is basically a gendered attack. Trump has recently taken to calling Clinton “unhinged” and “unbalanced,” implying she’s “not all there.” On ABC’s This Week this morning, Sara Fagen said that’s not the issue people have with Clinton, so that won’t be a particularly helpful line of attack. Then Roberts said, “‘Unhinged’ and ‘she doesn’t look presidential’ is totally code for ‘we shouldn’t elect a woman.’ That’s exactly what that is.”

    The night Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination, as TV anchors gushed about the penultimate crack in the highest glass ceiling, I tried to lure my 12-year-old daughter into the living room. I wanted her to witness history. She wanted to play a quiz on her phone. So when I put her to bed, I gave her a personal history lesson. Yes, I’d had plenty of career opportunities, and she would, too. But her grandmother, born in Hillary’s generation, had to fight to go to college, and her options afterward were limited to jobs considered suitable for a woman. Even...

    Four years before Hillary Clinton became the first woman to mathematically capture a major U.S. political party’s presidential nomination, a staff member on Rick Santorum’s 2012 presidential campaign posed a question in an email that shocked many people: “Is it God’s highest desire, that is, his biblically expressed will, … to have a woman rule the institutions of the family, the church, and the state?” God’s will or not, in 2016, it’s all that much closer to coming to fruition. Clinton is poised to be nominated for president by the Democratic Party next week. And so religious hard-liners of all...

A bitter nomination battle that Clinton was once expected to win in a walk ended abruptly late Monday, as she claimed exactly the number of delegates needed to secure victory in her contest against Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, according the AP’s latest tally. Clinton was widely expected — even inside her own campaign — to clinch the...

Hillary Clinton says while sexism on the campaign trail is not as severe as it was in 2008 when she first ran for president, it still lingers - even in her encounters with would-be supporters. [Snip] She also said that men fear ambitious women like her. "I think it's the competition," Clinton said. "Like, if you do this, there won't be room for some of us, and that’s not fair."

    new president is "extreme" in her politics because she's an unmarried woman lacking the emotional balance provided by romantic and family life, a member of China's body for relations with the self-governing island wrote in a newspaper opinion piece. In Beijing's harshest attack on Tsai Ing-wen since her inauguration last week, the new president was denounced as a flawed human being and strident advocate of Taiwan's formal independence from China, something Beijing says it will use military force to prevent. Tsai, Taiwan's first female president, has been criticized by Beijing for refusing to explicitly endorse the "one-China principle" that defines...

    US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has confirmed that there will be women on her shortlist for vice president, potentially making history if elected on an all-female ticket. The democrat politician's team confirmed, on 21 April, that women would make the cut, immediately leading to speculation about who the female candidate was, with liberal senator Elizabeth Warren's name coming up, although Clinton's campaign team did not put forward any names. Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, told the Boston Globe she wanted "the best person to make the case to the American people. "We'll start with a broad list and then begin...

    Hillary Clinton has flip-flopped on free trade, changed her policy on Iraq, renounced key laws signed by her husband and proved unwilling or unable to handle the 3 a.m. phone calls from Benghazi. Her two signature achievements — HillaryCare, later reborn as ObamaCare, and her management of the State Department — both look like dismal failures. There is only one attribute left that she can’t bungle, switch sides on or turn into a scandal: having double-X chromosomes. So that’s now what her campaign is about. “Hey, America,” Hillary is saying. “Did you realize I’m a woman?” She’s got to be...

    NEW YORK — There are three words that strike terror in the hearts of Wall Street bankers and corporate executives across the land: President Elizabeth Warren. The anxiety over Warren grew Monday after a magazine report suggested the bank-bashing Democratic senator from Massachusetts could mount a presidential bid in 2016 and would not necessarily defer to Hillary Clinton — who is viewed as far more business-friendly — for the party’s nomination. And the fear is not only that Warren, who channels an increasingly popular strain of Occupy Wall Street-style anti-corporatism, might win. That is viewed by many political analysts as...

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday she wanted to see a female US president during her lifetime -- but insisted she was ready to "get off the high wire" of top-level politics. "I hope so. I really want to see that in my lifetime," Clinton said during a town hall meeting at a girls school in India's Kolkata, when asked about the prospects of a woman taking America's top job for the first time. Clinton praised India's "great display of women empowerment" due to the prominent role played by female politicians over the years but said that in the...

    Not all conservative firebrands are created equal, according to a Pew Research Center poll released Thursday afternoon. The poll shows that 41% of GOP primary voters said there is no chance they would vote for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, should she run for president. And two-thirds of all voters said Ms. Palin wouldn’t get their vote, the highest percentage of any declared or potential presidential candidate. Another tea party favorite, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.), performed slightly better – 31% of the Republican primary voters said they would never vote for Mrs. Bachmann while 56% of all voters said...

    At 85, Phyllis Schlafly has still got game. The anti-feminist founder of the conservative Eagle Forum -- who counts Barry Goldwater's 1964 White House run and the 1982 death of the Equal Rights Amendment as exquisite victories and the "internationalist" presidencies of George Bush 41 and 43 as "not helpful to the Republican party" -- hasn't mellowed one whit. That she made abundantly clear Thursday afternoon at the Conservative Political Action Committee conference in Washington. Lord knows she still looks great, the poufy blonde hair perfectly lacquered, the fitted tweed jacket tricked out with her signature golden eagle brooch and...

"My government will be open to all Costa Ricans of good faith." Second-place candidate Otton Solis of the Citizen's Action Party had conceded defeat earlier in the evening, as the PLN -- the Spanish acronym for the National Liberation Party party -- forged its way to a nearly 2-to-1 lead.

    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (Reuters) – A protege of outgoing President Oscar Arias could be elected Costa Rica's first woman head of state on Sunday, though a conservative rival has upped his challenge ahead of the election. Opinion polls show ruling party centrist Laura Chinchilla, who has promised to expand Costa Rica's free trade pacts beyond the Western Hemisphere, within striking distance of the 40 percent of the vote needed to avoid a second round run-off. A late surge by libertarian Otto Guevara, who wants to replace the local currency with the U.S. dollar and crack down on rising crime,...

    If America elects a woman president soon, right now her name appears to be Hillary Clinton. In a hypothetical match-up between the two most formidable female candidates in their respective parties, Clinton defeats former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin 51% to 39%, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of likely U.S. voters. Seven percent (7%) prefer some other candidate. Clinton performs better against Palin than President Obama who in a hypothetical 2012 match-up beats last year’s GOP vice presidential nominee by just six points, 48% to 42%. Women overwhelmingly favor Clinton over Palin, 59% to 32%. Men favor...
