As a woman, I have to say I like the confidence that Hillary has been putting forward on the campaign and in the debates. I’m one who feels that this country is long overdue for a woman president and although I don’t agree with Hillary on some of the issues and would like to see her stronger or take a different stance on various issues, when I watched this brief video clip from the debate last night, it stirred a sense of woman’s pride:
“For 15 years I have stood up against the right-wing machine, and I’ve come out stronger,” she said. “So if you want a winner who knows how to take them on, I’m your girl.”
Dan Balz reported in the WaPo that both Obama and Clinton “took the gloves off” at last night’s debate. We’re finally starting to see the candidates willing to start challenging each other, and that’s a good thing. This race isn’t decided yet. Whether or not Hillary is our “girl” remains to be seen, but as I reported here last night, she’s sounding “reasonable” and gaining the interest of folks who call themselves “normal” Americans.
Finally… To clarify once again… I’m still undecided and plan to remain that way for some time to come.
