In 1920, women finally gained the right to vote (144 years after the nation was formed). In the last 88 years, you would think that men would’ve learned something about women — anything. Yet, in a US News & World article I was reading this morning, a male writer (and I would tell you which one, but I left the magazine at home) wrote something to the effect that disillusioned women Hillary voters will now back McCain because of Palin.
I hate to burst his bubble, but Hillary supporters aren’t going to vote for McCain because of Palin. That would be tantamount to slitting their own throats. Women who supported Hillary believe what Hillary believes — they’re pro-choice, against the war in Iraq and for public healthcare coverage. This is everything Palin isn’t.
The battle between the two would be interesting.
The lawyer who stood by her philandering husband versus the sports reporter who is forcing her 17 year old daughter to marry to save face.
The Senator from the 3rd largest state versus the Governor from the 3rd smallest state (by population, not land area).
Except this race isn’t about Hillary and it isn’t about Sarah; it is about Barack Obama and John McCain and which MAN we think will lead our country into a bright future.
It’s really too bad the election isn’t between Hillary and Sarah. It would make for a more interesting race. And, since it isn’t about the two of them, let me just shout this out to the men, WOMEN ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE!!!!!!
