I’m all for a female president – just not Hillary Clinton.
I’ve lost track of how many times Hillary had played the woman card throughout her campaign. She brought up the biological fact that she’s a woman so many times I couldn’t help but wonder if she thought we were voting for her genitals.
Believe it or not, she actually has toned down the “woman card” rhetoric a bit – after a study showed that literally nobody cares she’s a woman. I could’ve told her that for cheaper than what it cost to commission that study.
In a recent interview, her potential VP picks were brought up – with Elizabeth Warren being floated as a possible pick.
MUIR: “In the last 24 hours Senator Tester, a key Democratic leader was asked about the idea of a Clinton-Warren ticket — Elizabeth Warren of course, he answered, ‘Is the country ready for two women? I don’t know.’”
CLINTON: “Well, I’m not going to get into vice presidential choices, but I have the highest regard for Senator Warren.”
MUIR: “Let’s put her name aside though. Do you think the country would be ready for two women?”
CLINTON: “I think at some point. Maybe this time, maybe in the future. But, we’re going to be looking for the most qualified person to become president should something happen to me if I’m fortunate to be the president.”
So she’ll play the woman card when convenient… but the country isn’t ready for two women? Does she thinks two positives make a negative?
Personally, I won’t be surprised if she does pick Warren as her VP. What I believe Hillary truly is doing here is hedging her bets in the event of a loss, so she can blame sexism like any good feminist would.
