I'm not big into national politics - I believe that most politics should be personal. By that I mean that how you live your life and raise your children should be your most important political acts, and that the process of voting and speaking out is merely a manifestation of your everyday political self.
All that said, I can't wait for Hillary to finally run for President in 2008. I'm not at all sure that she would win, though. I'm convinced that the fundamental problem that she has is the difficulty that men have in supporting a strong, assertive leadership role for a female in our society. If anything, she might be too right-wing for me, with her support of the Iraq war, although I think that is just to appeal to undecided voters in the center and to mollify the concerns that men might have in voting for her.
Every attack on Hillary is personal, and most of them are simply misogyny dressed up as a political argument. Even her personal life has been exemplary. She raised a wonderful, intelligent, beautiful, and outspoken child. When her husband (sort of) cheated on her - in what must have been the worst kind of humiliation a wife and mother could have been subjected to - she stayed with her husband and tried to work it out. This is the sort of thing conservatives
She is, simply stated, a survivor. Can there be anything more noble than her continued public service in the face of all the adversity she's had to endure? Hillary serves as a great role model for our young women, and I wish I lived in New York so I could vote for her in the Senate and when she runs for President in '08.
