Hillary for President in 2016?

April 8, 2013 - Andrea Johnson
So it's looking like Hillary Rodham Clinton may make another run for the Presidency in 2016.

No such announcement has been made but Hillary sure is looking and acting like a Presidential candidate. She issued a statement this spring expressing her support for gay marriage, which I don't think was in much doubt, but it will win her support from key Democratic groups. She's writing a book about her time as Secretary of State that is expected to come out next year and will help remind potential voters of her various accomplishments. I remember writing about the first attempt at a health care system overhaul back in the 1990s. Hillary, as First Lady, was one of its major architects. She is also a former Senator from New York. It's been 15 years or more since you could refer to her as just the former First Lady or wife of Bill Clinton.

Her various supporters seem to already be organizing the campaign behind the scenes. People on the Sunday news shows yesterday were all buzzing about a run they seem to think is nearly certain.

As a woman and as a feminist, I know I ought to be thrilled by the prospect of a woman in the White House. On paper, she is probably the most qualified woman of all the potential Presidential candidates in the Democratic party.

But, for whatever reason, there is something about Hillary Rodham Clinton that I have found difficult to warm to and I suspect that feeling is shared by a fair number of potential voters.

What do you think of Hillary Clinton's prospects for a Presidential run?

I was not impressed by the "stand by her man" thing, in spite of the stories told by the involved women themselves. In her own words: what difference does it (or do they) make?

She looks fine to me.
