82. Guess I Did Not See That Coming
In no way did I mean the post from a male/female point of view.

I was, as some pointed out, merely implying that her recent achievements have been a direct result of her marriage to Bill.

I'm not implying she's not competent on her. Not capable of being highly successful as a female. Not deserving of achievement. There are plenty of women who are FAR MORE DESERVING of achievement than some men, and I respect that. The best person is what concerns me, not the sex or color of their skin.

But face it. Her recent achievements were a DIRECT RESULT of being and staying married to Bill. I said it in 1999, and I stand by it. She's like a journeyman player on a Hot Sports Team. Riding their coattails on the way to a championship. Sure, she's good in her own right, to an extent. But President Of The United States??

And as for the comments about New Yorkers voting for her. You know, I wouldn't mind her so much as Senator of New York. And let's face it, she would not have that position were it not for running immediately following her husband's Presidency. But it's all part of a big game. It's not about being Senator of New York. It's about CONTROL. About being somehow "destined" to be President.

And if you think that someone like Hillary Clinton, regardless of her sex, would be in a position to become President, without having been married to "Bill Clinton" specifically, then you're on more drugs than rush.
