Nothing she says really matters. She is just saying it because focus groups tell her that it will increase her margins by some small %.
Today we see this:
But she has already been in positions of power and didn’t use her power to be anyone’s champion but her own. The term “self-serving” comes to mind.
1. She was a Senator. As Senator, she never once was a champion for everyday Americans. Ever. She sponsored no legislation. She led the charge on no legislative agendas. There are no “Clinton Bills” for anything.
2. She was Secretary of State. She could have used that position to Champion for Americans. But she didn’t. She championed for Palestinians.
3. She owns a private foundation with $2 billion of assets that she can direct go anywhere she pleases. She can really make a difference for millions of Americans with that money. She instead spends it on “global initiatives”. Here’s an idea: Give all that money to children’s hospitals in America to pay for the medical bills of US citizens. THAT would make a difference in the lives of everyday Americans.
Once again, the words coming out of her mouth do not match the reality. With her, they never have.
But then, Obama stole her other campaign slogan, “change”. And since her party is in power, she can’t run on that again.
I have always thought that America is ready for its first black president. I just didn’t want THIS guy to be it because he was hopelessly unqualified for the job and he would predictably appoint petty tyrants throughout the government. Similarly, there is no question that America could easily elect a first female president. Just not THIS one. If that was so important, where were all those feminist groups jumping on the Palin bandwagon?
