ROOT: Hail the 'Iron Lady'

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — I am not sold on Hillary as a politician and I am definitely not sold on Hillary as a presidential candidate. Hillary Clinton does not command attention when she enters a room and she does not demand respect with the way she carries herself. I think that Hillary is a better politician than Sarah Palin, but that really isn’t saying much.

The most powerful woman in the United States is Nancy Pelosi and she’s a lunatic. I would vote for Hillary and Sarah Palin before I would vote for Nancy Pelosi. I would vote for a used stapler before I voted for Nancy Pelosi.

I think the time is right for a woman president, I just don’t think that there are any real options available right now. I remember the steady hand that Thatcher had when she would address the circus that is the British Parliament. She never backed down and she was always looking for someone who felt that they had better answers than she did. She was called the “Iron Lady” for a very good reason.

I don’t care if the next president is male or female, and I certainly don’t care about the color of his/her skin. What I want is a president that makes me feel good about being an American again. A strong-willed female president would be ideal. Men have done nothing but screw the country up since it started. It is time to put a woman in charge. But I refuse to vote for Hillary just because she is a woman. I am tired of placing a vote for the best choice of two bad options. I won’t vote like that anymore.

I know what a strong woman can do to improve people’s lives. But our female president would need to be really strong because Washington will tear anyone apart. I want to vote for a female president, but I want to feel confident about it at the same time. I know that Hillary is definitely not the answer, but I don’t know what the answer is.
