Hillary, The New Website

WASINGTON – HillaryClinton.com, the 2008 site, now directs people to “Click here to reach the office of Hillary Clinton.”

The second run to become the first female president in U.S. history… awaits.

At least many hope so.

It’s not a coronation.

As I’ve written before, many a Democratic man people have voted for had fewer credentials and a resume of less heft than Hillary Rodham Clinton. These same men didn’t have perfect policy prescriptions that the people who voted for them agreed with completely either. These same men were also not the perfect liberal.

Hillary Rodham Clinton shouldn’t be held to standards that most Democratic males in the modern era haven’t been able to meet when running for the nomination.

Personally speaking, there is simply nothing more important to me than electing a female president of the United States, which I happen to believe Hillary Clinton is poised to be, if she chooses. Clinton has said that if you believe you can make a difference you have an obligation to serve. However, as far as I’m concerned Hillary Rodham Clinton has already served her country to her fullest. So, if by some chance she opts out, she’s certainly already done her share.

However, there is a lot more that needs to be done and what Hillary could do as president seems limitless, especially where women are concerned, especially across the world. She just might be able to help inspire people in states across this country to also rise up against right wing legislatures who are cobbling away women’s freedoms in state after state.

We just finished the century of the American male.

The 21st century is poised to be the century of the female, in which the United States should lead. This requires a Democratic female president who understands that human rights are women’s rights and that women deserve to be as free as men. When applied across the globe the potential this philosophy in foreign policy and economic outreach could have holds the hope of literally shifting the world to a path never witnessed in human history. As innumerable studies have shown, a developing nation cannot thrive and stabilize if half its population, the women, are not empowered in every way.

This world evolution of empowering women won’t happen overnight, but there is no doubt that Clinton could take it to another level. She began this work as President Obama’s Secretary of State, which is her resounding legacy there.

The 2008 website link and re-direct was bound to happen. Now we wait and see what comes next.

And, oh, don’t you just love Hillary’s grin?

  1. I’m a big Hillary fan. This first started nearly twenty years ago when it became clear just how much she was hated by the extreme right. Her crime of course was being a strong, intelligent, outspoken, female democrat – who just happened to be the first lady. I remain a fan to this day and would very much like to see her run for president in 2016 – but only if she wants it. I believe she is tough enoughand smart enough to handle the obstructionist dead weight in congress we’ve been saddled with for so long. Also tough enough and smart enough to do more than just talk about visions for a better world. See? I told you I was a fan.

  2. She has my vote…at least right now :)

  3. Gotta say “because she is a woman” makes for a very poor platform. In fact, a focus on that aspect of the run is likely to backfire as instead of an all around capable leader she can be painted as a single issue candidate whose going to spend all her time making sure we have drive thru abortion clinics in church an 60 months for maternity leave. Because that is exactly how the GOP will frame it. Clinton has enough on both her resume and personal merit to make a solid bid for the Oval Office without resorting to that. She will beat the pants off of anyone the GOP can get through their primary red meat grinder.

  4. I would hate to see Ms Clinton limited by the presidency from doing all the good she could do for all the women in the world who are living in such deplorable situations and I think that is where her real heart and talents lie.

    She would be a competent president, but the campaign would be a disaster given all the baggage from earlier years. We just had one of those.

  5. It’s not going to happen, she may run but she won’t win. I won’t vote for her for a number of reasons, but some good ones are:

    1. Her personal legal records of the White Water affair that proves her criminal involvement. Forget about this fact at your peril America.

    2. You cannot say that you, “take responsibility for Benghazi”, but then don’t take responsibility for Benghazi! She threw up her hands before the Senate Committee saying: “what does it matter”. It matters a heck of a lot madam secretary and it will not be forgotten. It was incredibly stupid to overlook security requests from your mission in Benghazi. Considering the circumstances, you should have followed that mission’s progress daily with great concern for security. Obviously madam secretary you didn’t know what you were doing and apparently to aloof to listen to other’s about that mission.

    3. The excellent choice for a woman president just might have been Susan Rice, but she was obviously sacrificed for Hillary Clinton failure in Benghazi. Susan Rice was so busy watching the republican, “enemy”, that she forgot to keep an eye on her friend Hillary’s desperation.

  6. You may not like her but if she runs she’ll probably win. She has always had a noisy minority of detractors but they wouldn’t be enough to counter her strong popularity.

  7. She couldn’t get elected the first time and she won’t be elected in the future. Something about debates that brings out the reasons why one cannot lead. Benghazi just confirms it. Besides, we need to keep new blood flowing to the head of the party and the Clintons have overstayed their welcome IMO.
