Whoa!

Scathing... I don't believe I have ever heard Hilary referred to as a harridan...

I'll refrain from comment. But honestly, who thinks a woman can win the presidency in this country even now? Not me...

Re: if the shoe fits...
I understand your argument, but it does have a major critical flaw. Many other nations have had female rulers. America is not forcing its views in this arena at all. I think the rest of the world would be more likely to judge our president on content than we would actually, be that person male or female. Neither of the particular candidates mentioned in that article blow my skirt up though...

Too smarmy... I really dislike him. And look at what happened with the Virginia economy while he was in office (I would bet 80% of that isn't his fault, but once word got out it would be difficult for him to appeal to true fiscal conservatives) that said I know a bunch of people who'd go for it.

He is real good at the "awww shucks I am just one of you commoners" acts when he wants to be.

I hate to say it but the Republican party is headed for a major split the likes of which will make the factionazation of the Democrats look like a minor disagreement and we need to be proactive and fast about plugging the gaps.

Damn I wish John Warner would run! (I know he wouldn't make it either, but I like him)

If the DNC has any sense, they won't let Hillary run and if the rest of the country has any sense, they won't vote her past the first primary!! Much as I might admire Hillary, she's too polarizing a figure and frankly, the Democrats have enough trouble mobilizing their base; we don't need a polarizing candidate.

I really agree with this... I was truly hoping we'd have a less polarizing President, be that Democrat or Republican.

I don't think any one connected with either Clinton or Bush's administrations would win if the political climate doesn't do alot of changing, but I agree on another level that this country wouldn't vote for a woman president, and if it did, it would treat her mercilessly.
