Poll question: Do You Think You'll Ever Respect Hillary Clinton Again
Do you think there's anything she could do after this nomination process ends that would gain back your respect for her, if indeed she's lost it?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

17. Of course there is.
First she has to get all these people to the polls in November to vote for Obama.

25. The one thing Hilary proved in this campaign is...
She will say, do, vote for what ever is politically expedient for HER at that moment in time.

Hence the pledge for her not to campaign in and remove her name from the ballot in Florida and Michigan.

I mean really - would you trust her now to uphold democratic ideals and or your best interest. It will be just like NAFTA all over again. She will sell her soul to the devil if it would garner her an extra vote or campaign dollar

21. it assumes Hillary did something to lose respect.
It's assinine. Hillary now is the same Hillary as she ever was. No one, not even sweet Dennis Kucinich, can stay at this level of politics by being ALL sweetness and light. Politics is ugly at it's core. If seeing that makes one "lose respect" then they are idiots.

12. There are a number of things she could do to earn my respect.
Get behind the move to impeach Bush/Cheney;

Work tirelessly in the Senate to end the war;

Get completely behind Obama's campaign in the GE, and urge her supporters to do the same;

etc.

44. I hope she does some serious soul searching for the next 8 years
If she truly re emerges as a changed woman, I could consider her then. I think she has some serious character flaws now, and losing like this may give her a harsh reality check. It'll be interesting to see how she copes.

approves everything they have done. They completely represent her and she is totally responsible for their words and actions on her behalf.

who don't even work for him :sarcasm:

BULLSHIT right back on you. HRC is responsible for her campaign surrogates words and she surely has not rebuked them, apologized for them, disavowed them...

Fuck off

30. If "her handlers" are doing her wrong therefore exonerating her from wrongdoing, would her Cabinet
also bear the whole of the blame for any errors in a HRC Presidency?

15. Respect?
After screwing up National Health Care for 16 years? Voting for the IWR? I didn't respect her when she started her candidacy, she was in the "barely tolerable" category.

24. Maybe, if she did a few simple things:
1) Beg for forgiveness from mothers of dead soldiers regarding her support of the IWR.

2) Beg for forgiveness from all the Iraq War veterans, and spend the rest of her term visiting them in various hospitals.

3) Resign her senate seat, and offer to campaign for Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

4) Spend the rest of her days working pro bono for victims of Wal-Mart.

27. Democrats are very forgiving.
If she finally steps up to the plate and exhibits some leadership, including FULLY SUPPORTING THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE, I think all will be forgiven.

28. Other:
There are many kinds of respect.

I respect her as a fellow human being and living thing. Whether I like her or not.

I respect her intelligence and her willingness to work hard, to fight, for what she wants. Whether I agree with her or not.

I don't respect her political choices.

I've never respected her choices as a woman, allowing her husband to get away with repeated infidelity.

31. I went from not knowing who she was to no respect based on her character (or lack of)
back in 1994.

There is nothing for her to win back from me.

33. I'm not likely to forgive Obama for keeping the Whitehouse GOP.
This could have been a great year for the nation and the Democratic Party but the arrogance of youth and hubris will insure a mcCain presidency. Very sad. Had Obama been willing to wait and gain experience he would have been a great president. He would have also been able to bridle the hatred for middle class Americans that his supporters are unable to hide.

36. I have so much respect for your
positive input. I said no because I have a problem with the core of her character. She could repair all the damage with very little effort but I find it hard to believe she will even try.

35. Hardly. Hillary has shown she does not deserve my respect.....
....her antics are appalling. The RFK hypocrisy seal the deal for me. I could read deceit in her eyes both when she said it and when she 'apologized'.

39. If a few more folks would step outside of the poisonous haze of this election...
they'd realize looking through the fog her missteps become monstrosities, her embellishments become impetuous lying, and her running for president becomes a travesty unfitting a woman. She should stay in middle management, er, the Senate says the haze.

Flame away. I don't care. I simply don't think this woman is as evil or as diabolical as it seems. And she sure as hell isn't a racist. Nor is her husband.

The truth is the only woman who can ever win the presidency at this point is a Republican woman - a woman conservative men would vote for - who wears pink suits and peroxided hair and who'll know how to pose as the nation's mother. A mother who won't nag or screech or bother the daily lives of the men around her. Sweet, docile, but knows how to crack the whip behind closed doors. That's the only female archetype we can ascribe to on a national level. One that, in the minds of some, "doesn't try to act like a man."

42. To be honest-no. I was a huge admirer of hers for the past 10+ years
But now she's as useless to me as Joe Lieberman. The cat's out the bag. We know now how she really feels about progressives/ grass roots organizations. It's all clear to me now-she's been a republican at heart all along. She never truly gave up her Goldwater type leanings.
