#115039 by Margaret from Portland, Or. on 11/21: “...I am still with Hillary but she willl have a hard time getting elected, some people still remember her comment about staying home and baking cookies….”

Ha ha, Margaret, I couldn’t help but remember this old song from Charley Pride which is not only about “mama in the kitchen” but whether Hillary (or Bill?) “could live there anymore” in that white house…....


Something bout the smell of cornbread cooking on a wood stove

Seems to bring a picture to my mind

Of a little three room house with mama in the kitchen

But she can’t stop to talk ain’t got the time

She’s a fixing dad his supper he’s a working over time

Tryin’ to pay our bill at the grocery store

It’s nice to think about it maybe even visit but I wonder could I live there anymore

To Douglas Chalmers, I put the bait out there to see who would comment on Condi Rice running for president, it was a bad dream, I would not vote for her because she is a deceiver and cannot even tell a lie that is beleabable.

I am still with Hillary but she willl have a hard time getting elected, some people still remember her comment about staying home and baking cookies.

And Barack will get a lot of bad press about his name, the muslim thing will pop up again and again and he knows it.

And another point is that if the elections were stolen once it can happen again.

Oh, I agree, ha ha, Margaret. Condi at least speaks Russian - I doubt if Obama speaks Bahasa (Indonesian), though. Will that do? She would really appeal to all those voters who think that the USA has a right to blow up the planet…....

“if Condi Rice runs, I probably will vote for her even though I am a Democrat because I want a woman in the WH.”

Well, it’s official; as the Onion News Network has said, bullshit really is the most important issue to voters in 2008.
I mean, seriously, you’re involved in two wars that are not going in the right direction, a by-product of which is rising anti-Americanism and an increased threat from terrorism, we’ve seen the land of the free engage in wiretapping, rendition and torture, we’ve seen the errosion of the constitution, the expanding of executive power by an incompetent and dangerous President, the dollar is sliding down in value, the housing market is sufferring serious problems and we’re seeing an economic slowdown. And the most important thing for you is not policy or promises, but that a woman is in the White House. Do breasts and a vagina automatically solve the problems faced by America today?

On comment from Douglas Chalmers, if Condi Rice runs, I probably will vote for her even though I am a Democrat because I want a woman in the WH, of course I would prefer Ms. Clinton, but then again going over would be hard if Obama makes it to the primary I will vote for him but if there is not him or Hillary and Rice runs I would be tempted you know the men have had their chance now it is time for the ladies, but Obama would make a good president, he has a world view being born in Hawaii and living in Indonesia.

The voting is a whole year off and who knows what might happen, even Joe Biden might become president(thsi is far out in left field).

Her detractors certainly don’t seem to think so - and there are a lot of them, Margaret. Still, if my original suggestion that the Republicans allow Condi Rice to run goes ahead…..... at least both major parties would have “the most experienced and most qualified person” as candidates!!!!!

Mr. Fish, there must be a carton code if ethics you have neglected
Exposing a helpless animal to what goes on in average American voters head is uncalled for!

I think Hillary would be a good president, for one thing she would do a better job than George, but I for one would like to see the Democrats win and the chance of that would be dicy, I think that it would be great if she would also consider being a vice president then all the people who worry about Bill would not have to worry.

I wonder if this country is ready for a woman president or a woman vice president.
