Hillary Clinton - Not Woman Enough to be President

A progressive woman, I have been waiting for a long time for a woman to be elected to the White House. A woman president, I think, would be less likely to see war as a foreign policy option and because women bring life into the world, a woman would tend to be more empathetic and would value equally the lives of the neighbors with whom we Americans share this planet.

A woman, with the core of inner strength that is developed after years of nurturing others, I believe, could begin to put an end to thousands of years of suffering and violence practiced by male-dominated religious organizations and nation states.

Women and children are the primary victims of ethnic cleansing, genocide, apartheid, and the unfettered, reckless destruction inherent in the practice of war. Most women will protect the children of others as well as they protect their own. Most women would not stand by while children and their communities are terrorized by "Shock and Awe" displays of violence. Most women are empathetic to the pain of those who are traumatized by the deaths of family members and the destruction of their homes. Very few women would turn away while children and their families die for lack of food, clean water, and medical care in places such as the West Bank, Gaza, and Iraq.

Women are more apt to use negotiation as a method of conflict resolution. Women have spent lifetimes honing the skills of diplomacy. A woman president, I hope, would rearrange the skewed priorities of numerous past American administrations who have been trapped into a cycle of endless war by the Military Industrial Complex.


I had once thought that SHE might have been "THE ONE" but then Hillary Clinton turned her back on her sisters all over the globe. She brushed aside Bush and Cheney's lies, and voted for the illegal and preemptive invasion of Iraq. Hillary said YES to WAR.

She did not stand up to protect those who would die. Hillary stood instead with the neoconservative chickenhawks who have caused the deaths of thousands of men, women, and children. Hillary STOOD UP for WAR.

We were waiting for her to make a stand against the unnecessary war being advanced by the Republicans. She did nothing but condone and disappoint. She has continued to disappoint ever since that fateful vote.

Senator Clinton, noted for her intelligence and attention to detail, now wants us to believe that she was duped by the Bush/Cheney lies and misled into this sanctioning this war. Hillary, who had access to all of the experts and information that the Bush/Cheney regime jettisoned, insults us further with her bullshit excuse, "If we had known then what we know know now, there never would have been a vote... and I never would have never voted to give the president the authority."

Half of this country KNEW THEN what Hillary pretends not to have known. Half of this country and most of the world were out in the streets trying to STOP THE WAR against Iraq!!!
Hillary made her decision as a politician, not as a woman; a politician whose eyes were openly trained on the ultimate political prize - The White House.


Now we are trying to STOP America and Israel from starting A NUCLEAR WAR in IRAN but Hillary, once again, is likely to VOTE PRO-WAR. Senator Clinton has filled her pocketbook with thousands of dollars from AIPAC benefactors. The American Israel Public Affairs Committe, or AIPAC, or "The Lobby" has bought and paid for the loyalty of many of the members of the Congress, the Senate, and most of the current presidential candidates.

Hillary has visited Israel and stood with the Israeli's outside the wall that was built to imprison and further oppress Palestinian men, women, and children. How are we to believe that Senator Clinton will work toward PEACE when she has not stood on the other side of that wall with the Palestinian people? How are we to believe that she will listen to both the Palestinians and the Israelis when she has taken money from the AIPAC?

A month ago, Brigradier General Oded Tira of the Israeli Defense Forces had the following to say concerning Israel's plans for an American War against Iran:

"President Bush lacks the power to attack Iran. As an American strike in Iran is essential for our existence (Israel's), we must help him pave the way by lobbying the Democratic Party (which is conducting itself foolishly) and US newspaper editors. We need to do this in order to turn the Iranian issue into a bipartisan one and unrelated to the Iraq failure."

...Note that even General Tira of the IDF calls the American war against Iraq a Failure!

General Oded Tira then went on to say:

"We must turn to Hillary Clinton and other potential presidential candidates in the Democratic Party so that they publicly support immediate action by Bush against Iran... The Americans must act.Yet if they don't, we'll do it ourselves..."

Is that a threat General Tira?


Americans took to the streets again, on Jan 27th, to stop the ESCULATION of the War against Iraq. Anti-war Americans also DO NOT SUPPORT A NUCLEAR WAR AGAINST IRAN! Jane Fonda even marched with the
Anti-War movement this last weekend in support of the troops. Her message, "Silence is no longer an option!"

Hillary "eyes on the prize" Clinton, did not join us. She was too busy trying to sell herself on the campaign trail. Her silence about these wars is deafening and will hearld her political defeat! More of the same is no longer an option, Hillary!


The nuclear waste that would be released into the air above Iran as a result of the strike being planned by American neoconservatives and Israeli Zionists will not confine itself within the borders that define that country. Can the Earth's already fragile atmoshere afford to have nuclear pollution added to the global warming equation?

And don't forget... When Israel explodes it's bunker buster nukes in Iran, the ground will remain contaminated with nuclear waste forever!


It is our obligation to stop Bush.... John Conyers

It is our obligation to stop Hillary Clinton, too!

The only alternative we really have is a "Third Party", the Dems 7 Republi-cons are already too enmeshed with AIPAC and Israel to really expect anything different regardless of who the candidate is. AIPAC will lean on them and they will cave.

On another note, the only reservation I have with a woman President is the whole PMS and change of life thing. I know it's a tired point, but I can guarentee you there were times when my Mags would've nuked the planet had she been President!

I like your blog. You use the same template I do. Blogrolling you now.

Thanks for an interesting, thought-provoking essay. You've helped me clarify some good questions. I guess we'll be in that genderless lesser-of-two-evils soup by election time....

Deuddersun...Glad you visited.

We need something, either another party or to outlaw the biased influence of the AIPAC. Israeli Zionists in conjunction with American neoconservatives also intend that the US invade Syria and do a regime change in Saudi Arabia. The ultimate plan is to destabilize the Middle East to clear the way for American and Israeli domination of the entire region.

PMS?...Yeah... I used to get pretty crabby but now it's just menopause...Look out!! But on the other hand we have the problem of males trying to prove their manhood through violence...case in point George W. Bush.

I am planning in the next several months to change my template. Although I like this one and have used it for a long time, I want to go to three columns and am going to have a blog skin designer do it as I am not computer tech savy. I do have ideas about the design, however.

Sandy...I really felt bad about having to write against such a politically strong female presidential candidate but not nearly as bad as I felt when Hillary voted for the illegal preemptive invasion of Iraq.

I kept thinking of all of the terror and suffering that the Iraqi people and our troops would experience.

Sadly, now Hillary has been busy demonizing Iran. I have no doubt that she would vote to bomb and invade Iran.

Unfortunately, we are probably looking at more of the same "death and destruction" except this time around, in Iran. And after that, we'll all get to dog paddle in the "lesser-of-two-evils" election soup. On the bright side, a lot of people are working against Bush's proposed preemptive strike on Iran.

I have never liked Hillary Clinton and knew from day one that her Senate jaunt in New York was nothing more than a stepping stone to a shot at the presidency. She is more dangerous than Bush in that at least with Bush you know what to expect, with Hillary you have no clue what she'll do next...

I don't want Hillary no matter what. For one thing she can't get elected. The entire right-of-center population is unanimously against her, for whatever reason. But for me, she blew it when she was asked if she'd be willing to have her authority to declare war be limited by Congress if she was elected president. The no-brainer answer was "Yes!" Instead she hemmed and hawed and sputtered that she never would have staged an invasion like Bush's invasion of Iraq. Wrong! The answer of course is that yes, every future president needs to be prevented from unilaterally invading a country like our disgraceful BoyKing has done. Since she blew that question, she's out.

Well, ya got me there, KWW, nothing like a bunch of juvenile males all shouting loudly and wildly brandishing their penises at each other, "Hey, mah dick's bigger 'en yours!"

Do you have a copy of your "baby picture" you could post?

I agree with you - I do not trust Hillary Clinton either. Given the fact that she accepted 83,000 dollars from the AIPAC last year and has recently been spewing their rhetoric against Iran (practically word for word), how can she possibly be trusted to represent the American people? It seems she will also do anything to further her ambitions. She's definately NOT the one!

Her numbers are high but how long would that last? I hope that they drop.

I caught the one about presidential power to declare war and it bothered me but I had dropped her like a hot potato as soon as she voted to invade Iraq. You'd think that Hillary, who was there during the 60's would have concerns about history repeating itself ( war, troops, civilian casualties, etc) but evidently she was and still is PLASTIC! BOO, HISS, Hillary!

Yeah, Hillary does lack passion for the things that matter like the people who are victimized by war or ethnic cleansing. She gives lip service to caring about children, change, and heath care etc., but her actions betray her real "politics as usual" motives. Hillary wants stardom and power and doesn't give a shit about the lives destroyed by her bad political choices.

PEACE back at ya!

Hi I"m glad you posted about Molly Ivans. My daughter and I were heart broken to hear of her death. I meant to write something but didn't get around to it. We've lost a good one in Molly - She would have been a better president than Hillary!
