I had the thought today that, if Hillary Clinton is elected president, as a woman I will probably be expected to be happy that we have reached a historical milestone. Instead I will feel zero percent joy. I don't care if we ever have a woman president; I only want a good president. I don't care if it's a woman, man, Rhodesian Ridgeback, whatever, as long as they approach the job from my value system. Otherwise, I will be bummed.

(Also, do go and read that link of Rachel Lucas' dog's platform, if only for the little quotes under the issues. See here and here. It is teh funny.)

There won't be any happiness in this household that is 60% female if she is elected. Ugh...

Sadly Sarah, I think some woman will be voting for Hillary JUST because of her gender.(I hope coming from a guy that doesn't sound too sexist). I'd love to be wrong about this but I happen to live in NY, so I know a little about Monica Lewinski's Boyfriend's Wife, who supports her & why.

Tim, I know some will vote for her just because she's a woman, just like some will vote for Obama just because he's black. It's just as bad as NOT voting for them for those reasons.
