    Business Insider ^ | 04/21/2016 | Harriet Sinclair, IB Times
    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...

    President Obama said Tuesday that people will someday be amazed a woman had not served as president for so long in comments that came close to publicly backing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. “I want young girls and boys to come here 10, 20, 100 years from now to know that women fought for equality,” he said at the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum in Washington. Obama designated the Capitol Hill site as a national monument to honor the women's rights movement. “I want them to be astonished there was ever a time when women were vastly outnumbered in the boardroom or...

    Women serving in the Senate say Hillary Clinton is being subjected to an unfair, sexist double standard on the campaign trail. Criticisms of Clinton's tone of voice have become prominent in recent weeks, stirring strong feelings among Senate Democratic women who say they too have had to battle the stereotype of the shrill female. "She's often judged by a double standard," said Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), the dean of the Senate women. "Many of we women feel that there's a double standard. What's being said about Hillary is what women have heard for centuries. You're too loud, you're too aggressive,...

    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...

    The light at the end of the tunnel is little over a year away with the 2016 Presidential Elections taking centre place in the political calendar next year. The field has swelled so dramatically over the last three months that the GOP candidates look more like different acts in a circus program than potential Presidential nominees. There is one candidate that has emerged as the only realistic choice for President from this potential ‘democalypse’ as Jon Stewart likes to call it and her name is Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is the clear front-runner on both sides of the candidate’s circus...

    I was watching some of the Iowa interviews coming out of Senator Joni Ernst’s event on CNN this morning where several presidential hopefuls were strutting their stuff for primary voters. None of them really jumped out at me, but the interview by Dana Bash with the senator herself was definitely worth the price of admission. The reason dates back to last October when Hillary Clinton decided to dip a toe into the Iowa senate race in support of Democrat candidate Bruce Braley. The subject wasn’t anything to do with the issues of the day, but yet another ride on the...

Kennedy Institute, Senator Elizabeth Warren borrowed President Obama's lectern for a bit. Behind the lectern, Warren looked almost presidential: Many have called for Warren to enter the presidential race. This image, of her speaking behind the presidential lectern, may increase calls for her to challenge Hillary Clinton. In her remarks, Warren shared a story about how she told Kennedy to show some leadership, not just vote. Watch here:

RELATED: As 2016 race begins, GOP faces its Palin problem Two days after Sarah Palin said she is considering a bid and held up a “Ready for Hillary” car magnet during her weekend address at an Iowa conservatives convention, the group took the bait and fired back, accusing Palin of signaling the beginning of a GOP anti-Clinton crusade. “Over the weekend, a flock of Republican presidential hopefuls spoke in Iowa, and it was interesting. What caught our attention the most was when Sarah Palin actually held...

    Every other Republican in America is running. Why shouldn’t she? Right now the only woman in the field is, um, Carly Fiorina. The headline’s a bit of a tease. As you’ll see, this is more of a “never say never” deflection than a “hell yes” statement of intent. I think she’s following the Trump strategy at this point: There’s no downside to hinting you might run even when you know you aren’t running.

    On a Republican presidential debate stage expected to be filled with more than a dozen current and former politicians, Carly Fiorina envisions herself standing out — as the only woman and the only CEO. Sensing an opportunity in a crowded field that lacks a front-runner, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive is actively exploring a 2016 presidential run. Fiorina has been talking privately with potential donors, recruiting campaign staffers, courting grass-roots activists in early caucus and primary states and planning trips to Iowa and New Hampshire starting next week.

"I think this country is ready," the first lady in response to a question from ABC's Robin Roberts about when a woman should be elected to the highest office in the country. Obama didn't call out former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by name, so it was no endorsement - and she also said that qualifications matter more than gender.

"Look who fired the 1st shot in the real 'war on women,'" wrote Palin, a former GOP vice presidential contender. "Hint: it wasn't the GOP." Palin included an excerpt from Clinton's new novel that described how President Barack Obama once asked her to criticize Palin's candidacy. However, speaking on "Good Morning America" Tuesday morning, Clinton said Palin's claim was inaccurate. "Well, that’s not exactly what I said. What I said was that in beginning the process...

    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...

If the election were held today, former Sec. of State Clinton would have an easy time against either Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, or Paul Ryan. Clinton would defeat Sen. Marco Rubio 50%-34%. She would also win by double digits over Rep. Paul Ryan 50%-38. The Republican that would give her the most trouble is the one that the conservative base likes the least. Clinton would defeat...

Even if Clinton sticks to her word and does not run for president — something no one seemed to believe until her recent health scare — activists are still hoping to leverage the 2012 gender gap into a female nominee. “After the roles Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin played in the 2008 campaign,” Politico writes, “it would be hard for many to accept another cycle like the 2012 presidential race, which featured two all-male national tickets.”...

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...

He displays every trope of femininity more than any female "who could ever be elected in our children's lifetime" (to borrow Morrison's phrase about Clinton). Obama's feminine side may have developed in tandem with our cultural shift from an industrial to a knowledge economy as suggested by BizzyWomen.com : "Men are less suited than women to the knowledge economy, which rewards supposedly female traits such as sensitivity, intuition, and a willingness to...

"The endorsement seems all the more puzzling given the fact that the Republican Party is running its first female candidate for Vice-President, Gov.

    When the dust settles over the 2008 election, will Hillary Clinton have helped or hindered women's advance toward the US presidency? Right now, Hillary is in Godzilla mode, refusing to accept Barack Obama's looming nomination and threatening to tie the Democratic party in legal knots until the August convention and beyond. Those who think she will withdraw gracefully in a few weeks are living in cloud cuckoo land. The Clintons are ruthless scrappers who will lock their bulldog teeth in any bloody towel. In her raw ambition and stubborn, grinding energy, Hillary will certainly cast a long shadow on young...

    Her defiant speeches are peppered with references to her gender. She told a crowd of some 3,000 - more than two thirds of them women - in Coral Gables, Florida, that America needed "a president who will roll up her sleeves and get to work for you" and a woman to "clean house" in Washington. Mrs Clinton's main remaining chance of beating her Democratic rival, Senator Barack Obama, lies in persuading the vast majority of about 200 undecided super-delegates - party officials - to reverse the elected delegate tally, which the Illinois senator has already won. Making an explicit pitch...

    With each passing day, it seems a little less likely that the next president of the United States will wear a skirt — or a cheerful, no-nonsense pantsuit. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is now in what most agree are the waning days of her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. To use her own phrase, she has been running “to break the highest and hardest glass ceiling” in American life, and now the presidency, or even a nomination that once seemed to be hers to claim, seems out of reach. Along with the usual post-mortems about strategy, message and money,...

    As Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton faded from Democratic presidential favorite to runner-up, Lynn Z. Tulumello and countless other women from coast to coast looked on, aching with a disappointment far greater than the one that comes with losing. “I don’t want us to have this chance and for it to end with women looking at their daughters and saying, ‘If I had had a boy, he could have done anything,’ ” said Tulumello, a 47-year-old South Buffalo resident with two grown daughters. “I’m sure Hillary feels the same way.” No doubt about it: Many women feel the same way. As...

    Philipina Heintzman, 81, drove 80 miles across the South Dakota prairie to experience history in the making: a woman running for president, something she never dreamed as a child that she would live to see. That event, a Hillary Rodham Clinton rally in Bath on Thursday, also marked history unraveling. As Clinton's prospects sink in the Democratic race, Heintzman and many women like her are feeling the poignant letdown of seeing the first woman with a strong chance at the presidency fall short. "It would hurt my feelings a lot because I think she should be No. 1, she should...

    Faced with a growing chorus to abandon the uphill battle against Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton is falling back on what she sees as her trump card - her gender.At other perilous junctures like the eve of the New Hampshire primary and the eve of Super Tuesday, the former First Lady highlighted her femininity during televised tearful moments. Now she is portraying the calls for her to quit as male chauvinism. In comments leaked to the New York Times, Mrs Clinton is said to have told aides that she would not be "bullied out" of the White...

    Campaigning For Mom In N. Carolina, Clinton Says She Was Sheltered From Chauvinism (AP) Chelsea Clinton said Saturday that she didn't realize how much sexism remained in the United States until she noticed the issue at recent campaign stops for her mother. "I didn't really get how much sexism there still was in our country until I was at a rally with my mom in New Hampshire, and someone came up to me and said, 'I just can't see a woman being commander in chief,"' Clinton said during a stop in Research Triangle Park. She also noted another New Hampshire...

    WASHINGTON - Former Sen. George McGovern, the 1972 Democratic presidential nominee, said Tuesday it would be easier for a black man to be elected to the White House than a woman. The former South Dakota senator has endorsed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, whom he has known for decades since she helped campaign for him. She is in a close race with Sen. Barack Obama for the party nod. "I have a feeling that in this country where we're at today in our thinking, it's going to be harder to elect a woman than to elect a black man," he told...

    To a number of the people packed into Soldiers & Sailors Military Museum and Memorial yesterday evening, this was more than just another politician on the campaign stump. This was history, unfolding right up there on the stage, right before their eyes. A woman who might be elected president of the United States. "To be honest, no, I never thought I'd see the day," said Audrey Johnston, 76, of Scott, who attended Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's speech with her daughter, JoAnn Ferraiuolo, 56, of North Versailles. "The good ol' boys club always seemed to have their say," said Ms. Johnston,...

    DALLAS -- Darlene Ewing is a Democratic activist, longtime feminist and very frustrated Hillary Rodham Clinton supporter. Like many who have dreamed of seeing a woman in the Oval Office, Ewing doesn't understand why women are drifting in ever-greater numbers away from Clinton toward her rival, Barack Obama. This trend, which has imperiled the candidacy of the woman once considered a shoo-in for her party's nomination, infuriates the frank-talking Texan. "They're running to the rock star, to the momentum, to the excitement," said Ewing, a family law attorney who chairs the Dallas County Democratic Party. "And I am worried that...
