Hillary’s a woman; who knew?

Woman

Hillary’s message is starting to get sharpened.  She’s just about given up trying to be different that Bernie.  Who can compete against free stuff unless it’s just to equal his extensive list.  But now the difference between the two Democrat candidates is beginning to come into focus.  The divergence in these two candidates is in their genders.  Guess what?  Hillary’s a woman.  No argument there and we’re all very glad that’s been settled.  But her biggest difficulty seems to be admitting that it’s her main vote-getting strategy.  She goes around saying that you shouldn’t vote for her because she’s a woman but then seems to be quick to remind everyone that, yes indeed, Hillary Clinton is a woman.

“Don’t you someday want to see a woman president of the United States of America?”

“I think being the first woman president would be quite a change from the presidents we’ve had.”

“44 boys is too many.”

“Folks want an outsider in this election. Who can be more of an outsider than a woman president?”

And of course there was the Madeleine Albright now famous quote, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”  So it’s not only our duty to vote for Hillary but any women who doesn’t fall in line is also risking eternal damnation.

Here’s a thought though that can put this whole let’s-finally-have-a-woman-president campaign strategy to rest.  If Bill Clinton was the first black president, didn’t we already get our first woman president when we elected Barack Obama?

The trouble with Hillary

Posted on Updated on

Hillary

In 1992 Bill Clinton had the charisma thing but he also had the message thing.  His message was “It’s the economy stupid.”  Hillary isn’t Bill, and it may be partly due to the Bernie thing.  Bernie Sanders, promising everything to everyone, well, at least as much as 18 trillion in new spending according to The Wall Street Journal, started making poor Hillary look down right conservative.  How can Hillary compete?  So instead of a focus, she’s spinning wildly, like a grandmother with her finger locked down on the trigger of an automatic weapon, spraying bullets in every direction, unable to relax her grip.  Her focus so far includes climate change, LGBT rights, gun control, free college, minimum wage, family leave, path to citizenship, and even UFO’s.  Taken one at a time, they’re phenomenal liberal causes.  Taken as a collective list of goals, it’s just plain socialism.

If Hillary does manage to hone in on one target to focus her campaign, the going may still be tough.  There’s still the charisma thing.
