What a Classy Lady :)

I really do love this woman (and fully expect to be struck by lightning as I type this).

If you're an Obama supporter already getting angry just settle down (most Hillary supporters are on your side, afterall).

I applaud Clinton supporters who "are pushing for the Democratic Party's new platform to state that the primary elections 'exposed pervasive gender bias in the media' and to call on party leaders to take 'immediate and public steps' to condemn future perceived instances of bias."

Article Here

Whether you love or hate Hillary, you have to admit she took a lot of shit in the primary season because she's a woman (remember those guys at her rallies shouting "Iron my shirt!" and other equally misogynistic comments made by TV talk show hosts, news reporters, and even politicians?). That's unacceptable and I think the actions of this committee are commendable. It's not really about Hillary Clinton; it's about how women are treated in this country and holding political leaders accountable for their lack of action with respect to gender discrimination.

I await your hate mail!

No hate mail here - I do love hilary and was a huge supporter of Bill in both elections... and i do applaud her taking up this cause and feel it is valid... HOWEVER there is something to be said for timing... and I think any negative coming from us as a party only gives the other party ammunition to spin their weird tales of diversion amongst our party... this is an issue that is not going to be fixed in the next few months... why not hold off until December... and she is entrenched enough in the political system and should know this...

It isn't Hillary herself who is facilitating this, it is supporters and members of Congress. I do understand what you're saying. I really don't think it will affect the results in November though. We all get so caught up in making sure that a democrat gets elected in November that we sometimes play politics ourselves instead of doing what's right (and I am certainly guilty of doing that). I am excited that she will at least be speaking at the convention and I am sure she will do much more to help the party unite!

I am not an American, but I love Hilary, and really do think that she would have been the best president post Bush. As an outsider, it is so easy to see that all Obama claims not to be (a Washington insider, etc), he actually is all of those things (how can one be an outsider AND become a bloody US senator?)

The most damaging things that Obama have done include flip-flopping on public financing (which he supported during the campaign, and now refuses to use!) and the war in Iraq. Any European who thinks that Obama will be more open to European ideas of diplomacy is clearly living in a dream world.

McCain might be older than shit, but he is more consistent in his approach to public policy.

Hilary for 2012!

I agree with you Scott. I am not one of the Americans fooled into thinking Obama is an outsider (when in fact he is as much of a politician as anyone else in Washington). Also, his latest flip-flop seems to be on offshore drilling in the United States; it appears that he's giving in to score political points with the middle and working classes. What is funny is that he says his position on the issue is not a new one (even though it's completely different than what he has said in recent weeks). I expect this kind of thing from the current administration but not from our supposed advocate of "change." I am less than enthusiastic about our choices for President in November.

Are Devin's posts EVER funny?

Where's the pics of morbidly obese naked women or ironic pictures of eighties sitcom actresses?

Smart Devin. America still Puritanical down to its roots, so fundamentally them bitches (women) should be at home popping out babies. According to white men that run this America. Then again, in Middle East we thinks they should be cover head to toe in hot black sheets. Who is worse?

There are other highly qualified women out there besides Hillary the pandering pathological liar who got into high office based on her husband's reputation. Why does everything always have to be about her?

Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius tops my list to become the first woman President or Vice President.

But many Hillary supporters have demanded that if a woman is picked by Obama as his running-mate, it MUST be Clinton. So she's getting in the way of other women. How feminist is that?

of course you think she only got into high office "because of her husband." very typical. a woman can't do anything by herself. it must have been her husband's doing. you have an obvious hatred in your heart for her. why is that?! so people are passionate about her, isn't that what we want--people in this country to get passionate and actually involve themselves in the political process? why is she a pandering liar? have you examined her record AT ALL or are you just making blanket statements because you don't like her? and of course there are other women qualified to be president or vice president in this country, no one is disputing that.

Of course I think women can succeed on their own. I pointed out one such woman. Hillary is just not a good example of that. But that's not why I hate her; I do because she's a person who will say or do pretty much anything to advance herself. I hate her for the same reason I hate Mitt Romney. And her pandering was obvious throughout the primary season, that point shouldn't need elaborating.

And that's my last comment about this topic.

you really didn't give any actual substantive reasons for disliking hillary clinton, miles. and by the way, obama has done his fair share of pandering. offshore drilling much? accepting money from oil companies? changing positions on iraq? changing positions on campaign finance reform? just saying....
