Americans are growing ‘impatient” as they wait for a woman to be elected president, 2008 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Saturday night.
“People are saying,’ Well, at least we’re ready,'” Clinton told interviewer Jane Pauley, as the two held a public chat for charity in San Francisco.
“There’s a feeling that it’s time,” she added.
"Commander in Chief? started out as the season?s most talked-about new show, but the initial hype didn?t translate into solid ratings ? and ABC has shelved the White House drama.
The network announced over the weekend that it is pulling the show ? which stars Geena Davis as the first female president ? until spring to make way for a new comedy, "Sons & Daughters.? The "Commander" show will be off the air for at least six weeks, the New York Post reports.
Not a very good month for “Democrat Presidents” since both “Left Wing” and “Hillary in Chief” have been pulled off the air.
It was a liberal’s pipe dream. A Democratic female president.
I never watched the show, and lost interest in “The West Wing” after two seasons or so…this is why the free market (of finances or ideas) works so well. People like something (and they usually like things that represent them) they watch and/or buy it. If they don’t…well, you get a cancelled series.
Hilary for president…now that’s a scary thought!
The show was all I needed to see of a woman in the White House. Just the thought of Hillary running for president makes my skin crawl. She is evil in high heels, and they’re only 1 and a half inch heels at that. God help us if she makes it to the presidency. Christians of all denominations can start going underground at that time. We’ll go back to making the fish sign in the dirt to identify ourselves to each other. I do not have any warm thoughts about this woman.
I have to laugh when she says “we’re ready.” Many people I know, mostly from my family, wouldn’t vote a woman to the presidency…my own mother said she wouldn’t even vote for *me*.
I think a woman president would be fine, great even, but not Hilary. I can’t think of many other women I’d elect, but I’d rather have a man as president than her…life under a Hilary administration would be horrid.
I think it’s embarassing and insulting to declare that “we’re ready for a woman president.” This implies that we’ve all been just too sexist to permit a female to step foward and run, up until now. What has magically happened now to make us so “ready” to elect a female president that wasn’t there before? It also implies that the Mondale/Ferraro loss was simply because Ferraro was a woman — it couldn’t have been their platform and/or that Reagan was the better candidate.
We’re supposed to be on the lookout, and then vote for, the most qualified president. I’ll be “ready” to vote for that candidate be they male or female.
This sorta reminds me of the brouhaha in Doctor Who fan circles about a story that ran back in the early, early seventies (and was set only slightly in the future) which mentioned that the Prime Minister of the UK was a woman. Years later, there were indignant denials that this could ever have been meant as referring to Thatcher, though at the time this was fairly well accepted.
If only Condi were pro-life…. *sigh*
How about Condy for President in 2008?
How funny would it be if the Republicans were the ones to get a female black President happening?
It would show up the Democrats for sure!
I find it interesting, not surprising but interesting, that most of the anti-Hillarious Clinton posted comments came from women. I add my voice to yours. No %$#*@(? way!!!
It has nothing to do with not wanting a woman in the White House. I just don’t want a lesbian, babykilling, foulmothed, Communistic, pro-death anti-Christ BITCH in the White House.
I agree, but how ironic that your tirade against the foul-mouthed contained two curse words (one masked).
Generally speaking, I’m somewhat on the side of Amy’s relations. Women, by virtue of being wives and mothers and consequently having responsibility for civilizing the savages, tend to be much more interested in people’s ideas and motivations and feelings than men are. This is an excellent and necessary thing from a sociological point of view, but it would be a disaster politically and legally. The maternal approach is less concerned with specific actions (still less with abstract rights) and more with motivations and emotions: it isn’t that she says it’s wrong to make faces, but it’s mean to do it specifically to upset your little sister, and it’s wrong to be mean and to take advantage of someone who’s weaker than yourself. Properly understood, law exists to create a framework for conduct, not for feelings or ideas. It establishes what a person isn’t allowed to do to other people, rather than teaching him what he ought to feel about them, or what is or isn’t nice. I’d be concerned that the mom instinct would take over even more than it already has, if we had a woman president, and we’d be kindergarten-teachered to death. Heaven knows we don’t need to go any further than we already have toward feminizing the law.
Wait a sec! We had a woman President, well, a co-President for eight long years (1-1993-1-2001). I remember that awful time when snow fell even in July. I had assumed that former co-President, Hillary Clinton, was prevented by law from seeking a third term.
VickyG l think you’ve said it all quite fairly. But you forgot to add Troll to your list.
Back in ’92, my literally card carrying member of the ACLU mother-in-law asked my 14 yr old daughter who she was going to vote for-Hilary or Barbara. My daughter politely responded “I’m not old enough to vote but if I were, I’d vote for Mr Bush” It makes a mother proud.
I am offended when ever someone suggests that I should vote for genitalia.
I’m pretty sure that when Hillary says “we’re ready” she is using the royal “we.”
Hillary, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that you were right – the country was ready to elect a woman president. The bad news, is that Condi Rice has her bags packed.
I will never vote for a woman simply because she’s a woman. And I’m a bit tired of liberals insisting that they represent “all women” when they only represent pro-abort woe-is-me-I’m-sooo-victimized pampered yuppie womyn who get all excited about talking vaginas and think Maureen Dowd is Jane Austen.
I’ve often wished Maggie Thatcher could run for President. I’d like to see “The Iron Maiden” face off with Sen. Splash.
Condi Rice might have her bags packed but she’s also pro choice. Ummmmm……next.
