  • One Woman's Voice

       December 27, 2007

    Glamocracy has invited all of the Presidential candidates to either guest blog or be interviewed for their site (as an aside, if any Presidential candidates or staffers are reading this, you can guest blog here too ;-). Their first blogger is none other than Hillary Clinton. Ironically, I find that Hillary is at her most condescending when she addresses women. She talks in platitudes and about sisterhood and a "woman's voice". That's all well and good, but in the immortal words of Clara Peller, "Where's the beef"? Women, even young women, need more from a candidate than a shared gender. Hillary Clinton says:

    But I am not running for president because I am a woman, I am running because I want to be the president who will prioritize the policies that matter most to women, who will stand up and fight, who knows the power of a woman’s voice.

    But here's the thing - and Clinton of all people should know this - I am more than a woman. I am a professional. I am a daughter, sister, aunt & friend. I am a capitalist. I am a conservative, for god's sake! What matters most to me, and the way I would determine and prioritize policies, has to do with every thing about me, not just the fact that I'm a woman. To reduce my beliefs and desires to "women's issues" demeans me. It's as if the Clinton campaign thinks I'm so stupid and easily led that I'll just vote for a woman because I am a woman. In fact, it's that very "you are stupid and I know better" attitude that makes it a 100% certainty that I will not vote for Clinton. That's my woman's voice.

    The thing is Kris, that is EXACTLY what the Clinton campaign thinks and unfortunately, they are right more than they are wrong. There will be women who come out and vote for the first time in their lives for that one reason only. It's more important to have a woman president than the best possible president of the candidates.

    Fortunately, she reminds most men of their nasty ex wife so the gender gap on the male side may make up for the gender gap on the female side.

    Insulting, yes. But, fortunately for them, most of those first time voters are too stupid to realize they are being taken for idiots. If they had your smarts, they would revolt.
