1. I've always loved her.

She is such a strong woman, and she drives the idiots on the right insane.
I really wanted her to win the Democratic nomination in 2008, but I happily voted for President Obama.

13. Before you post, click on the "smilies" button all the way to the right under the title line.

A bunch of smilies will appear. If you scroll over the smilie you wish to use, the shorthand to place it in your thread will appear. You can't place smilies in a thread title, and remember to always include the colons before and after your choice. A semi-colon won't work. Also, the ... box at the end of the first batch of smilies will take you to more choices.
Again, welcome to DU.

on edit: again!

19. I love her, too.

She has one of the best legal minds of her generation.

I, too, wanted her to be President. I live in Illinois, and that did not go over well. However, worked hard for Obama. I planted so many signs in yards, walked and knocked on doors, and did enough phone banking to burn myself out on that for a year.

Hillary is still beautiful. But I think she is tired and needs a break. She says she is going to retire. I wonder if that is true.

She lived in Park Ridge until she went away to college. Her parents continued to live there until many years later when they moved to Arkansas to be near her, Bill and Chelsea.

2. Truer words have never been spoken. Why any woman would vote for those that

want to repress and control women is beyond me. I just don't get it ... has so much of this society been brainwashed that much.

10. Sadly some women aren't allowed to think for themselves.

They let their husbands do all the thinking for them. Even in this day and age. I love men, but I will never let one control me, so why should natural women do so?

12. Amazing ... sometimes I wonder if it's a primitive ancestral instinct ... to be controlled by

the hunter - gather. Thinking back on all of the fights for women's rights, this seems so very very backward, especially in the 21st century.

23. Some women and some men that I know think it's romantic to be controlled

Some women, and some men that I know think it's romantic to be controlled by their man. To them it's like one of those steamy romance novels where the man takes charge. I know for me it can be romantic when we are fooling around, but the actual relationship should be a partnership.

Also to be fair, I know plenty of lesbian women who are controlling of their partners, I really don't understand that one, but it's not my decision, I just listen to them complain then run right back into their arms.

40. As should our country

We need to stop allowing some people to accumulate so much wealth that they could never spend it all anyway, and stop allowing people to starve. The idiots on the right may call that socialism, wealth redistribution, or whatever bull shit term they dream up, I call it the right thing to do. There is plenty of wealth to go around and every single one of us can have good lives.

I would hate to see her retire any time soon, although I know she has to be exhausted and ready for the break. She would make a great president. I'm still holding out hope that she will run in 2016.

Somehow, the Word ‘Peace’ Got Lost

http://passblue.com/2012/03/09/somehow-talk-about-peace-has-been-lost/

UN WOMEN'S CONFERENCE 2012

Somehow, the Word ‘Peace’ Got Lost

by Cora Weiss • March 9, 2012

This essay was adapted from a speech that Cora Weiss, president of the Hague Appeal for Peace, a network of peace and justice groups, read as a panelist on the “Women, War and Peace” debate held during the 56th Commission on the Status of Women this month at the UN. The debate that Weiss spoke at, on March 1, showed a film, “Peace Unveiled,” about women in Afghanistan.

Who comes from a place where there has been violence or war?

I have enormous admiration and respect for the women of Afghanistan. I mourn with them for the loss of life, the wounded, the babies frozen to death in refugee camps, the destruction to their homes and communities. And I celebrate their determination to be at the peace table.

The question after so many years of war and waste is: When will we stop making war? When will the currency of foreign policy stop being weapons? When will be become exhausted from exhausting all nonlethal means of resolving conflict before resorting to violence? When will we implement the Charter of the United Nations, dedicated to preventing the scourge of war? When will women be at all the decision-making tables to prevent war and to design the peace?

Humanity has abolished slavery, colonialism, apartheid and the prohibition of women voting. Why can’t we abolish war?

We gather for the annual Commission on the Status of Women conference at this time of year because March 8 is International Women’s Day, voted by the General Assembly in 1975 to be the United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace.

Somehow, peace has gotten lost.

It ain't so, so relax.

My experience is that the memory is, in fact, the first thing to go.

Of course, even this has its downside-- you might find yourself in the position of having had a really awesome "sexy-time" with your partner.... and not remembering it.

back in the 90s. My niece would come to me just to talk or for advice on school or whatever. There were three intelligent & accomplished women I used as role models for her. Two I worked with & the other was Hillary.

My niece is now a pathologist. Thank you, Hillary.

I still hope that she runs for president, she's fierce. As SOS, she can't say too much about domestic policy, but she couldn't contain herself on the issue of women's reproductive rights. LOL!!!
