Why My Daughter Isnít Excited About Hillary
Politico ^ | 08/02/2016 | Joanna Weiss

Posted on 08/05/2016 8:39:24 AM PDT by DFG

The night Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination, as TV anchors gushed about the penultimate crack in the highest glass ceiling, I tried to lure my 12-year-old daughter into the living room. I wanted her to witness history. She wanted to play a quiz on her phone. So when I put her to bed, I gave her a personal history lesson. Yes, I’d had plenty of career opportunities, and she would, too. But her grandmother, born in Hillary’s generation, had to fight to go to college, and her options afterward were limited to jobs considered suitable for a woman. Even for those of us who grew up with wider horizons, a female president often seemed like a fantasy, reserved for TV characters and aspirational Barbie dolls. And now, here on TV was an actual, live woman on the brink.

Her grandmother had to “fight” to go to college?

Nonsense.

Maggie Thatcher did the same thing over 30 years ago. But then you didn’t hear all that stuff about “breaking the glass ceiling”, did you?

No, because only liberal women matter.

A few weeks ago, I crashed a lunch of summer interns at a Boston tech firm and asked them what they thought about Hillary Clinton. They were undecided and unenthusiastic, which wasn’t a deep surprise. But what was striking was their reluctance to see gender as even a fact worth noting, a factor to put on the balance sheet.

LOL Stupid, liberal, self hating Jew. Can't understand why, for so many years they've pushed the "everybody's the same" meme, these people don't see Hillary as anything special because she's a female.

The stupid liberal cow...

Of all the great women in America, Crooked Hillary could be the first to become president. She’s a threat to America and a stain on women.

Wellesley College was Bernie territory this election season: http://patch.com/massachusetts/beaconhill/2016-election-draws-media-frenzy-hillary-clintons-alma-mater

The Philadelphia Wellesley Club could only find a dozen Hillary supporters: http://www.wbur.org/hereandnow/2016/07/27/wellesley-college-clinton-nomination (They show a photo of a table strewn with name tags to make you think that there were more members than that, but the table just represents the women who didn’t show up.)

We all know about the not-so-quiet anymore whispers about Hillary Clinton’s health. It appears that all those public appearances recently are making a lot of people on the Left nervous about whether she is hale enough for the rigors of the real electioneering season. It’s time for acting DNC Chairperson Donna Brazile to get a third-party medical diagnosis of Hillary herself to reassure everyone, because if Hillary becomes incapacitated for any medical reason from September 1, 2016 on, trying to get a replacement name on the ballot—even if it’s Tim Kaine—could become a very messy situation.

My mother was born in 1924 and graduated college in 1946. And she didn’t have to fight for it.

C’mon, LAWS don’t apply to the Democrats! Just look up Robert Torricelli and Frank Lautenberg in New Jersey. If Hillary’s health does interfere, no matter what the date, Obama will declare that Americans should still have a ‘choice’ in the Presidential election. AND that all early votes for Hillary will be awarded to whatever Dem candidate they are able to slip in at the last minute. I am clairvoyant (not really, but I have seen the Dems in action for decades and their playbook doesn’t change).

This article is total BS

Women have not had to fight to go to college since well before “Hillary's generation”

Heck, they had colleges dedicated only to women such as Vasser and Hillary's alma matter Wellesley

My mother went to University in the 1950s and the ratio of men to women was about 55 percent men and 45 percent women

She went on to law school

This feminist story telling of fake oppressive history against women is a lie

There was male dominance in big corporations for sure but women could succeed if they were serious

My grandmother was a highly respected founding member in the 1960s of what has become one the nations most well known real estate firms . I was going through her things a while back and found her old business cards.

Her job position on the card was listed as “President”

***But after talking to her students, she realized that most couldn’t relate to Clinton’s persona: the driven crusader, calling out enemies, clawing her way to the top.***

People can’t relate to Hillary because she can’t relate to them. It’s that simple.

Robert Torricelli and Frank Lautenberg in New Jersey

The most egregious example of high court malfeasance until Roberts okayed Obamacare.

Yeah, in 1966 it was impossible for a woman to go to college. LOL,,,

A stain on this country.
A vote for her is explicit acceptance of two rules of law.
