Hillary Clinton

My mother has placed a bet that Hillary Clinton has a chance at becoming the first female US president. It would be nice to see, me being democratic if I was american. What's the concensus? Is the US ready for a female leader?

I'm curious, how many female state governors have there been in the US? Or city mayors?

I can only think of three state governors, one each in Texas, Utah and Rhode Island.

But I have to admit that I only pay attention to my own state and the closest neighboring state(where my family still lives) as far as the state elections go.

Hillary

Postby admin » Fri May 25, 2007 10:37 pm

This is my first post from China. I'm in a hotel in Shanghi.

I think Hillary can be nominated, but I don't think she can win. There is, for example, a quote in the news feed on the current Doonesbury that basically says, Hillary is a liar, liar, liar, liar, liar. This is the standard take that conservatives have on Hillary -- short of specificis, long on name calling. But they hate her so much that they will turn out in record numbers to vote against her.
