Clinton plays the female card

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Hillary Clinton's campaign Monday made its most overt bid yet to highlight her historic potential as the possible first US woman president, suggesting female voters could vault her to victory.

The front-running Democrat kicked off a week of events highlighting her perceived appeal to women, as her campaign released a memo implying she could best exploit the "pivotal" voting bloc in 2008.

"Women are and will be a powerful force in American politics this presidential election," the memo said.

"They were the critical swing voters in the last three elections and they promise to again play a pivotal role in this one," Clinton's top strategist Mark Penn wrote in the memo.

Less than three months before first party nominating contests, the memo argued the New York Senator was trouncing her fellow Democrats and potential Republican rivals in the battle for the female vote.
