Is anyone voting for Hillary Clinton simply because she is a women?
Should the fact that Clinton is a women be a factor in our reasoning for giving her a vote? I hear a lot of women say that this is our time to show everyone that women can accomplish the role of president. I truthfully don't see how women are saying this. There are many great women leaders from the past, present and will be in the future. Me being a women, I will not vote for Hillary Clinton simply because of gender. I feel its offensive to women to give her a vote off of gender. She has given me no good reason to vote for her. I am just curious on others opinions on this matter.
Your summary in the ? speaks to the fact there is no real reason to vote for Hillary Clinton for the presidency, so the only conclusion is that the votes for her are mostly based on her gender.
If that is not the case, then what are her presidential qualifications. I watch Julia Child cook, does that make me a world famous chef?
For me to become that chef, I would have to accomplish cooking a dish that would be judged by other famous chefs that think I have attained the performance of that kind of chef.
She was the Secretary of State, a US Senator, on the impeachment inquiry staff for Watergate, a criminal law teacher, an attorney, and Yale grad; not to mention her board positions and non-profit work. That is not to say she is not without faults and issues; which are numerous as well. I am just emphasizing that voting for her primarily because she is a woman merely scratches the surface. I think it is a disservice to Hillary and the feminist movement to condense her value and appeal as the female candidate.
That is not to say I don't see appeal in the US reaching that landmark. It is crazy that out of the 43 presidents, none have been women in a country that self prescribes itself as the "leader of the free world" but to vote to check a box is lunacy as well. If she wins or loses I would like to believe that it is based on items broader than her gender.
You quoted what she did, but you didn't give any accomplishments. Accomplishments are not mere actions, they resolve the issues, and create a solution that actually works. She bailed on her second term as NY senator spent her last 2yrs campaigning
The question wasn't whether or not she's accomplished. It's whether you'd vote for her simply b/c she's a woman. She's had an extensive career which is far more prudent basis for voting (or not) than gender regardless of whether you favor her or not
That is because there is no accomplishments to list. Haha. Hillary Clinton has no business running for office. She is under a Federal investigation.

Good luck with getting anyone to actually admit they are voting for Hillary simply because she is a woman (they may not admit it but in the voting booth that will be the only thing that is going through their minds).
For those who are voting for Hillary simply because she is a woman, and I know there are millions, watch this brief video:
The truth is that no one should be voting for any woman candidate simply because she is a woman. What they should be doing in voting for a woman is to vote for the kind of woman a woman should be and that isn't Hillary Clinton by any measure.
She is not the kind of woman anyone should vote for to lead this country as evidenced by the kind of woman she is, untrustable, conniving, a two faced and hypocritical revolting example of womanhood. To think she is any kind of acceptable example of womanhood in America, if you think women are to strive to be like her, I can't imagine what your idea of the perfect example of manhood is, Bill Clinton? Good luck with that.

How can Hillary be "for" women when her husband is a womanizer who's lied throughout their marriage?I find it odd, that so many women are for Hillary Clinton, when her husband is accused of being a rapist and of having numerous affairs.Hillary always says the accuser is lying, though...

Hillary has hinted and has been fundraising in the last month, which some say indicates she is preparing for another run at President Trump. Others say she's just trying to make it look like she's a candidate to keep the law off of her tail.Thoughts?

So it's the final day. Let's be clear about the choice;Hillary Clinton is deeply unpopular. She may not be a nice person. There are so many negative reports about her, it is difficult to believe there is 'no smoke without fire.' However, some allegations are disproven, and most others are unproven...

There are people who strongly contend that the witch hunt against Hillary Clinton regarding past scandals & e-mail escapades are because she is a woman. They maintain that Hillary Clinton is more than qualified to be President of the United States. They maintain that Hillary Clinton...
