Running for President While Female — 3


Reminder (not to the women who regularly read here, but to those who may just be flying through reading blog posts about the election):  The above cartoon is not about the campaigns of either Hillary Clinton or Obama and it is not in support of either.

It is about the starkness and ugliness of the sexism the election is foregrounding.

Edited to add:  This cartoon isn’t even about the election.  It’s a 1997 cartoon about Women’s History Month– I just thought it was about the election because I have election brain.   It is definitely fitting.

  4. If we want Hillary Clinton to become President in 2012 Barack Hussein Obama needs to lose this election.

    If Obama wins and does well as President, then in 2012 people will just re-elect him and not vote for Hillary Clinton.

    If Obama does horrible as President, then people will not vote for Democrats and will just vote for Republicans.

    Thus, the McCain/Palin ticket has to win to ensure that Hillary Clinton becomes President in 2012.

    On top of that, Sarah Palin as Vice President would excite more confidence towards people in having Hillary Clinton as President in 2012.

    More and more prominent Hillary Clinton supporters are supporting McCain/Palin’08.
