Worked good for me.  :)

I voted no.  Why?  Because she is NOT like Bill Clinton in her views and policies.  Also, she's anti-2nd Amendment, and that chaps my hide.  Lastly, she is TOO liberal in so many ways.  We have a President who is too conscervative, and obsessed with fighting other countries for "freedom".  We don't need a President who will be obsessesed with being too liberal like Hilary is.  What we need is a balance.  I don't care what party they are, as long as they can do their job competantly as President, and address the needs of the people of all classes-poor, rich and the disappearing middle class.  Also, a person who will focus on improving THIS country in safety, security, economy, and general well being of citizens.  Hilary, I'm sad to say, isn't it.

Most welcome Lin.

I voted no - to me she is all about a cult of personality and it would be possibly the worst thing our first woman president should be elected on - oh ANY president.

I don't care if a canidate is male or female - and I think that many aggree with me onthat, but I know full well that it's not a voting majoity and this our first woman president is going to have to have far more substance than any of her male opponents. Just the way of the world right now and the forseeable future.

That said I really detest personality cults, as bad as any religious or other cult around.

Well the results so far have been what I expected. I started the thread because I beleive Hillary getting the Dem nomination would be a big mistake and be a huge missed opportunity for the Dems to win the White House. So far, the results bear that out but it's early still.

I'd have to see.  I'd probably vote for her, but not enthusiastically.  It depends on who's running against her.  I don't trust the Republican party at all at the moment, but if they ran somebody good (who, I don't know, because I'm no longer as psyched about McCain now that he's buddies with Jerry Falwell) I'd have to consider it anyway.  I don't hate Hilary, but she's just too much of a politician to me. And I think after Bush we need somebody who at least has a hope in hell of uniting the country again, at least a little bit.  Hilary's such a polarizing figure that there's no way the Republicans would let her have a successful presidency, even if she made a good effort.

A female president doesn't bother me, though.  I was kinda leaning toward Elizabeth Dole a long time back, when she was running.  She's done some stuff I'm not so crazy about since then, but I thought that she might be good.  I like Bob Dole as a person, but thought he was too much of a hot-head to be president.  With him helping her with advice, but the final say-so being hers, it coulda been good...

Cheers,

Zwolf

I voted yes....but more for  the Hillary she was during the Clinton years.  She seems to have developed an edge lately that I'm not sure I am comfortable with.  Not sure how to explain it tho.  Just a gut feeling?

I'm not sure who else is a real possibility for the Democratic nomination.

Or even the Republican one

Usually the Veep would be the logical candidate after serving in that capacity for almost eight years (at this point) but I don't think Cheney is a possibility even....and I don't think he could get elected anyway.

I know I would NOT vote for him.

Truth be told I'm just not too excited or encouraged by any of the names I've seen tossed out there as possible candidates...for either party.

Might vote for her.  Depends on the other candidates in both parties.  But I usually go Democrat.

Actually I'm usually voting against someone rather than for someone.  I'd sure like to vote for someone again...

I don't suppose Bartlett or Santos will be on the ballot?  

Actually I often want to vote "none of the above."  Wonder what would happen if a majority did that???  Would the candidate with the most votes after "none of the above" win?

For those who voted "I don't like her policies," (there are 3, currently), I'd like to hear exactly what policies of hers you don't like, because I follow her pretty closely, and she seems to have systematically staked out common sense, middle-of-the-road positions on almost every issue imaginable.  

The approach is identical to her husband's "third way" ethos, and very cloe to my own personal philosophy (though I'm sure I lean more to the left than either Clinton).

You know, I'm going to retract my initial knee jerk reaction to the original question and ask you if you have any links to any position papers, voting record, etc.  I am quite frankly NOT well informed on her, and if she has staked out a moderate position on issues, I'd like to read up on it.

Do you have any links?  Or would a google search suffice?

Murdoch Hosting Fund-Raiser for Hillary Clinton


Raising the eyebrows of friend and foe alike, conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch has agreed to host a political fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton's senatorial reelection campaign. Senator Clinton is also regarded as the current front-runner among possible candidates to head the Democratic Party's presidential ticket in 2008. When she originally sought to become the junior senator from New York, Murdoch's newspaper, the New York Post, ran a strident campaign against her in which she was listed as the sixth "most evil" person of the millennium. An unnamed media lobbyist told today's (Tuesday) London Financial Times: "Murdoch will be for the Republicans but he is also smart enough to know that the Republicans might not win. At some level, whether nationally or in New York, Hillary is the future and what savvy businessman would not want to put a line of interest in someone who will be the future?"

She's a very, very smart lady to neurtalize Murdoch.  She's been courting him for years now, and the change in NY Post coverage has been nothing short of stunning, both in the so-called news section *and* on the editorial page.  (I don't ever watch Fox News, so I can't say what, if any, change has occured there.)  

I'm not sure he'll actually support her for president (though she will *absolutely* get the Post's enthusiastic endorsement for reelection to the Senate--that's a done deal), but even if he doesn't, his opposition will be tempered rather than unhinged.  Even if his editorial board WANTS to savage her, it will be hamstrung by the glowing reviews  they've given her in the past (which she will no doubt plaster across the airwaves in her media buys).  

Again, very, very smart.

Not to be overly simplistic, but it's who I am.  :blush:

How about, it's about time we had a female president?  
Heck, she can't be any worse than the guy that got elected the last two times.

If she was the nominee, who would you like to see as VP? Edwards again? Gore (either one)?
