Whenever hillary is on the tv, I prefer a poor signal over HD.

It's not if a woman can become President, it's which woman.

“What early success the show enjoyed, Lurie believes, was based in emphasizing the strength of its main character. Davis, as President Allen, immediately established her national security bona fides in the show’s title and script. “We were trying to eliminate the concerns about a female president right off the bat,” Lurie recalls.”

In my universe, a fictional female president of a television show doesn’t convince me that a female president is just okey-dokey (as the Hildabeast is known to say).

All of them are nuts. Flipping nuts!

What the MSM doesn't think about is whether women want THAT WOMAN as president over them and if married over their husbands? What kind of role model THAT WOMAN would be and how would she treat men?

I think the answer is that women either adore her or hate her and she them. Also look at how she treats her enemies - this is how she will treat men and anyone who crosses her.

Hillary may be a believable President. But she still has to draw support and not count on having it simply because she's a woman. That remains to be seen.

what a bunch of morons...the shows failed and CBS news is failing because of the characters. Commander in Chief wasn’t believable and Couric should have stayed on morning tv. If they had run with a Condaleeza Rice type commander in Chief....I think the public would have bought into it. Hillary’s failure will have everything to do with Hillary...nothing else.

When Hollywood producer Rod Lurie created fictional president Mackenzie Allen in 2005 for the show “Commander in Chief” he made no mistake about one of his goals: tilling the soil of popular culture so that it would soon be easier for a real woman to take root in a nonfiction Oval Office.

At least he is honest about it. Most blatant propaganda attempts by the liberal TV producers are denied.

So does this mean a “fairness doctrine” would’ve required the network to offer a second series where Ann Coulter became president?

To Clinton’s benefit, her demeanor may be closer in character to Close than Davis.
Actually, I think Clinton's demeanor is closer to that of Krusty the Clown.

I would vote for a good, strong, intelligent, credible woman for President. That woman however is NOT hillleree.

It was obvious from the get-go that "Commander In Chief" was a love letter to Hillary designed to soften up Americans to the idea of a "Madame President." That's not only why it got onto ABC, but why the MSM went ape promoting it. For awhile there, it was everywhere you looked as they tried to shove it down our collective throats with millions of dollars worth of free publicity.

I only happened to pay special attention to that because it was opposite my favorite TV show, "House," and it would infuriate me to see media outlets like "Entertainment Weekly" put "CIC" on the cover while trying to bury "House." One year, Hugh Laurie won the Golden Globe as Best Actor on TV (voted by foreign journalists who weren't in on the "elect Hillary" conspiracy), yet EW's Entertainers of the Year issue lauded Geena Davis and didn't even mention Hugh. It was only after "CIC" was finally cancelled that they even began to put "House" into their weekly TV listings.

Of course, quality eventually won out. "House" is now the #1-rated scripted show on TV, and "CIC" is but a bad memory. It gave me hope that there actually are limits to the brainwashing abilities of today's mass media (Al Gore's 2000 vote total notwithstanding), and that maybe we Great Hairy Unwashed in flyover country aren't as gullible as the Bi-coasters think we are.

Davis never conveyed the gravitas of actresses such as Meryl Streep or Glenn Close, who once played a vice president. To Clinton’s benefit, her demeanor may be closer in character to Close than Davis.

That's ridiculous. The Glenn Close role they're talking about was in Air Force One, and she played the Veep -- who was effectively acting as President -- as cool, competent, loyal and principled. Nothing like Hillary.

I flipped through the boob tube and caught that guy Carlos Mencia on Comedy Central doing his “Man In The Street” thing, where he asks people questions.

He must have asked 10 or 12 women if they’d vote for a woman for POTUS and he was astonished that they all said NO! He couldn’t find any women to answer the way he thought they should. He made a sexist joke about it and moved on.

The results undermine calculations by ABC and CBS that placing accomplished women in roles traditionally owned by men would be a ratings hit because of the number of female viewers drawn to one of their own.

You mean this hasn't been their plan since "Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman" and "Murder, She Wrote"?
