Hillary Clinton wants female US president, but insists it will not be her
NY Post ^ | 7 May 12 | Newscore

Posted on 05/07/2012 10:16:24 AM PDT by seanmerc

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday she wanted to see a female US president during her lifetime -- but insisted she was ready to "get off the high wire" of top-level politics.

"I hope so. I really want to see that in my lifetime," Clinton said during a town hall meeting at a girls school in India's Kolkata, when asked about the prospects of a woman taking America's top job for the first time.

Clinton praised India's "great display of women empowerment" due to the prominent role played by female politicians over the years but said that in the US "we still have a pretty hard glass ceiling that has not been broken at the presidential level."

The former First Lady and New York senator, who was beaten by President Barack Obama for the 2008 Democratic nomination, reiterated that she was not interested in another shot in 2016.

"I have been active in high-level politics for last 20 years. I feel it's time for me to get off the high wire," she said. "I would like to come to India and wander without streets being closed and a lot of security."

Well, if my vote has anything to do with it, she won’t ever be president.

When Obama becomes Radioactive, he will be blamed and Hillary will step in to “fix things” but will just continue things as usual...

I am so tired of identity politics.

We need to divide the world up into sections, one for each hyphenated-class of people we can think of, and herd everyone into their section and lock them in.

Then the white female lesbian whatevers have have their own President, as can everyone else.

If she can get the natural born requirement dropped, I think Hillary would go all out for Huma.

Considering how she’s let herself go, I just might believe her. Poor old Bill can’t be happy that she’s heading home.

Same here. What a coincidence, Hillary—we don’t want you to be President either.

Of course not, she wants a female president, not whatever she is. Since we don't know what Hitlery is, I'm glad she's sitting this one out.

Doncha' just love libtards? "wants female president" . . . not "the best qualified president" . . . male or female.

Would this unprosecuted felon want Michelle Bachmann or Congoleesa Rice to be president? Huh? They're "females", aren't they?

Of course not. She's a hypocrite! But you're right . . . you can't make this stuff up!

Did you see the caption Drudge originally put on that picture? “Hillary Au Naturale.” I had a few immediate responses to that: (1) RRRRRAAAAALLLLLPPPPPHHHHH!; (2) Those words must never be used in the same phrase or sentence EVER AGAIN; (3) I don’t have enough mental bleach to erase that image from my mind; and (4) RRRRRAAAAALLLLLPPPPPHHHHH!

In lieu of a female candidate Hillary would be willing step in.

Her statement kind of exposes the left’s racist policies. We should vote for a candidate based on qualifications, not on male/female persuasion.

Which leads me to believe the same sentiment would be “I hope I see a...African...Chinese...Indian...Malaysian...

and so we see the left’s voting requirements.

She will jump at the chance to be the zer0’s VP with hopes of being elected/appointed in 2016.

She would probably not have any problem with Condi.

They are both worthless incompetents who owe their success to affirmative action and pandering.

Although we’ll see monstrous political bandwagons in favor of a false conservative, stealth socialist female candidate planning to further “empower” public education, anti-marriage efforts (”domestic violence” advocacy) and “get tough on crime laws” and policies (police state), it won’t happen.

The debt regime will go last long enough to support more political correctness. Forget it, social lefties/goddess worshipers. Or continue wasting your time and incomes derived from debt on it. That would be alright, come to think of it.

Have fun. Enjoy the slide. “Back to the future.”

Why is she so insistent on having a President with a vagina?

Frankly, I don’t care what the President has between their legs...I want them to be CONSERVATIVE.

Maggie Thatcher. Ronald Reagan.

Both of those leaders were awesome.

That’s not it, The countries she flies into refuse to bring out the boarding ladder so she gets thrown off the plane and she always lands head first, something to do with the left always doing things backwards, as a result the accumulated damage is somewhat overwhelming.

Hillary Clinton wants female US president, but insists it will not be her

Meet the Press, July 17, 2001

Tim Russert: In July you went before the National Press Club and made a comment, and I've been saving this tape, and I want to roll it right now

(Videotape, July 17):

Hillary: No, I have said that I'm not running and I'm having a great time being pre--being a first-term--being a first-term senator.

(End videotape)

Russert: A little Freudian slip there?

Hillary: Well, no. I don't know what that was.

Russert: That was "president."

Hillary: Well, you could have been--there are a lot of words that begin with `P.'

Russert: R-E-S.

Hillary: Prescient. No, I'm having a great time being a senator.

Russert: Do you ever want to be president?

Hillary: No. You know, I...

Russert: Ever?

Hillary: No, I really.

Russert: Never? You'll never run?

Hillary: You know, Tim, I have no intention of running for president.

Russert: Oh, but that's a--no intention. Either "I will never run" or "I might run."

Hillary: You know, your good friend and mine, James Carville, told me, "Tim will ask you this 900 different ways," but the answer is the same. You know, I do not intend to do that. But what I do intend to do is, you know, to be the best senator I can be, which is what I'm trying to do to the best of my ability every single day.
