Still not watching, except when my husband is on -- so I have seen the venue and have to admit it looks pretty cool.
Hillary spoke today, and from what I heard, her speech was pretty generic -- "We have to support [insert name of whichever @#$! got the nomination instead of me] to win back the White House [and when they don't, I'll be back in 2012]."
I want to feel sorry for Hillary -- she was the heir apparent after all, she put up with so much to get there after all, and in waltzes this guy who did next to nothing... But it has nothing to do with chauvinism or misogyny, and everything to do with the fact that *no one* -- except hardcore, ignore-the-facts femi-nots -- felt good about how she got where she was.
I think America is fully prepared for a female President -- just not this end-justifies-the-slimy-means do-whatever-it-takes-just-to-get-there-til-her-last-drawn-breath flip-flopping, poll-trolling, -- whew! trying to encapsulate her is exhausting! -- chameleon-with-no-conscience.
I can't wait to see the woman who will come along and show her how it should be done. Not by being unafraid to be like "one of the boys," but by being unafraid to be a woman in a traditionally man's world.
Thanks, Hill, for knocking down the door -- but it's going to be a different woman who strides in with grace and integrity.
Sarah Palin, anyone?
