Your logic makes no sense.

14. Pelosi is the first woman who could be President
If Bush and Cheney are out of the picture.

She has a much better chance than Sen. Clinton will ever have.

15. hillary has vilified herself. being a woman doesn't make her virtuous.
Edited on Thu Mar-13-08 01:22 PM by enki23
it would be sexist, and stupid, to pretend it did. but then, maybe i'm just an evil male bastard who fails to be swayed by an arbitrary "<foo> month" designation into overlooking the dirty, borderline racist politics her campaign has so obviously and continuously engaged in.

for the record. i have no reason to believe hillary is personally a racist. she's just allowed, or directed her campaign to exploit other people's racism to help her win the democratic nomination. i suppose i'm expected to find that ok, because it's women's history month.

16. Ok, I'm in.
Hillary Clinton is not a monster, but she is quite possibly, in the top echelon of Worst Campaigners Ever.

And I won't even mention the shady tactics, and the no longer subtle (if it ever was) race baiting. It's not necessary to bring that up, as it may reinforce the notion that Hillary Clinton is a monster.

26. Hillary is earning all her villification. That is equality my friend.
By the way, Farrakan was "villified" during Black History Month right? He deserves it, so it doesn't matter that it was FEB. So, Women's history or not, Hillary deserves criticism

36. Reading things like this make my head hurt.
I'm not even an Obama guy, but goddamn, legitimate criticism does not suddenly become "vilification" simply because it is directed toward your candidate. Can you really say that Mrs. Clinton has run a flawless campaign? Can you really say that her campaign hasn't made a single misstep or that all of her tactics have been above reproach? Of course not. It's just stupid to say things like this. In this party when you fuck up you get called on it. Sorry.

39. Wow. That's just incredibly fucking STUPID.
I can think of plenty of women who are far more worthy of praise in women's history month than Hillary Clinton. Women like, oh, Eleanor Roosevelt. Or Joan of Arc. Or Eleanor of Aquitaine. Or Elizabeth I. Or Marie Curie. Or Mary Walker. Or Elizabeth Blackwell. Or Florence Nightingale. Or Ann Richards. Or Boadicea. Or Catherine the Great. Or dozens of others.

And she doesn't get a pass on the conduct of her campaign because she's female; nor does she get a pass on things like her vote for the Iraq war because she's female.

Just a reminder.
