More "Wars on Women," or a Neo-Con Outs Herself?

I just read a very interesting article at Politico.com that reminded me how much better off this country would probably be if Hillary Clinton had won the Democratic primaries in 2008 and had been elected President. (I think there's little doubt that either Clinton or Obama would have beaten the McCain-Palin ticket, hindsight notwithstanding. In fact - if Hillary had won, an added bonus is that we probably would not now be stuck with Joe Biden as VP. But that's a old story that doesn't need repeating.)

In the article, Politico.com reports:

"Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says in a new interview that she can’t stand “whining” by women who are unhappy with the work and family choices they’ve made in life and complain that they have no options."

"I can’t stand whining," Clinton tells Marie Claire in a recent interview. "I can’t stand the kind of paralysis that some people fall into because they’re not happy with the choices they’ve made. You live in a time when there are endless choices. … Money certainly helps, and having...financial privilege goes a long way, but you don’t even have to have money for it. But you have to work on yourself. … Do something!”

Clinton added, “Some women are not comfortable working at the pace and intensity you have to work at in these jobs. … Other women don’t break a sweat. …They have four or five, six kids. They’re highly organized, they have very supportive networks.”

Hmmmm.....Hillary Clinton chastising American women in general for "whining" about the choices they've made in their lives, and for their failure to pursue the opportunities presented to them by our society? Incredible. Unbelievable.

I couldn't agree more with these sentiments, although I do find it surprising that Mrs. Clinton would come out so close to the 2012 presidential election sounding so much like....well....a REPUBLICAN!

Wonders never cease.

I agree with her about that. Not just women, that goes for anyone. If you don't like the choices you have made in life, change them. There are always options and choices.

Yes - we should all "grab the bull by the horn(s)" and "do something." In that regard, it has just been reported that Monica Lewinsky "has recently obtained a masters degree in social psychology."

Great post Chief, the country would be doing better and less divisive if Hillary would have been the Democrat nominee in 2008. If Barack Obama were white,he wouldn't have had a legitimate chance at the nomination to boot!

Hillary would have refused to repeat (her own) history, and would have left healtn care reform to a second term (maybe). She would have focused on the economic issues and would have worked with the GOP to forge alliances and compromises that constitute true GOVERNING.

Hope and change gave us Obama for the past four years. Today, we are STILL waiting for that change, and our only real hope is to elect Romney. But if HRC had won in 2008, conditions in this country would be a much different - for the better, I'm sure.

And those dastardly Republicans are at it again, with their never-ending efforts to "suppress the vote" and wage their "wars on women." This time, the target was Ms. Sandra Fluke, who was on "center stage" yesterday in Reno, NV during "a daylong effort by Democrats to get Northern Nevadans to the polls on the first day of early voting." It is unknown how many Northern Nevadans actually went to the polls on the first day of early voting, but Ms. Fluke's speech drew a whopping TEN spectators.

See: http://www.rgj.com/article/20121020/N...

The poor attendance for media-darling Fluke's speech was obviously the result of a "vast right-wing conspiracy" - undoubtedly headed up by Rush Limburger - to "suppress the attendance" at Ms. Fluke's public speaking engagement.

Oh, those right-wing extremist Republicans and their wars on women: what will they do NEXT?
