Gail Schoettler, in her Denver Post column, makes her case as to why Hillary Clinton could become President of the United States.
Gail is right. Hillary could become the next President of the United States. She probably will not, but she certainly could.
Gail, however, gets confused. As part of her pro-Hillary argument, she writes "if a woman can't win in modern America, shame on us."
Gail has confused Hillary with every woman in the country. If Hillary loses, it does not follow that "a woman can't win in modern America." If it means Hillary can't win in modern America.
Hillary is not "Every Woman." She is just Hillary.
And, of course, anyone with any sense knows that Chaka Khan is "Every Woman." Not Hillary.
Come to think of it, I would vote for Chaka Khan before I voted for Hillary. Hell, I would vote for Elizabeth Dole and Condi Rice long before I voted for Hillary. I would vote for the next lady that walked into my neighborhood grocery store before I would vote for Hillary.
So would many people.
The sex of the candidate is irrelevant, but if the field were actually limited to females, Hillary is way down my list. If the eligible candidates had to be named Hillary, I would vote for Hilary Swank before I voted for Hillary Clinton. I would even strongly consider voting for Sir Edmund Hillary before Hillary Clinton, and he is a really old guy from New Zealand.
