Idea of woman president: 'This is big-time change'

Saturday, March 15, 2008

By Dan Majors, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


To a number of the people packed into Soldiers & Sailors Military Museum and Memorial yesterday evening, this was more than just another politician on the campaign stump.

This was history, unfolding right up there on the stage, right before their eyes.

A woman who might be elected president of the United States.

"To be honest, no, I never thought I'd see the day," said Audrey Johnston, 76, of Scott, who attended Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's speech with her daughter, JoAnn Ferraiuolo, 56, of North Versailles.

"The good ol' boys club always seemed to have their say," said Ms. Johnston, a retired food service manager. "To come this far and see a woman candidate, this is change. This is big-time change."

It wasn't a ladies-only crowd that Mrs. Clinton addressed. It was, however, mostly white, and it was decidedly enthusiastic. And, because of its location in Oakland, there were plenty of young people.

"The last time I was this excited about a candidate, it was probably John Kennedy," Ms. Johnston said.

As one woman quoted at the end said, the fact that Hillary's a woman is just icing on the cake.

Go, Hillary, Go!
