I think that Hillary thinks that she does not need a rationale, that she thinks that it is preordained that the liberal agenda will progress, having a woman in the POTUS chair is part of the agenda and that now is the time, and that nothing else matters.
Hillary Clinton has worked damn hard to get to where she is today. She does not take it for granted the crown will be hers after all, look at what happened in '08 re African American Barack Obama, a little unknown US senator from Chicago...this was a long shot for an African American to even think he could capture the White House....but he did, TWICE! "Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it? Clintons understands, possibly far better than you, that she has to work doubly hard in the African-American community to get the black vote simply because she is not another Barack Obama. She realizes if Jeb Bush or a Marco Rubio gets the nomination, the Latino vote is not exactly hers either because any ethnic group would welcome the chance to put forward their own for the very first time, despite their ethnic hopeful's obvious faults. (Marco Rubio is currently being investigated by the Justice Dept for financial fraud.)
But it does. The vast majority of people don't give a tinkers damn what color skin the president has or what sexual organs they have, they want a president who will lead the NATION as opposed to their party forwards. Hillary needs to come up with the goods like everyone else, she is not going to be our affirmative action president, awarded the job by quota.
To intelligent Americans, the only thing they want is a decent president who will be fair towards ordinary folks; however, you seem to be deliberately ignoring the huge white elephant in the room....America is riddled with racism, especially so in the south where they are still fighting the Civil war. We have a congress who on Day One of Obama's Inauguration made a pledge to oppose this black president no matter what it was or how badly Americans were hurt in the process. Still our economy improved, and the ACA was passed so millions of uninsured, including more whites, could have health insurance with a minimum amount of funds. Obama's had to work very hard trying to clean up the MESS Dick Cheney, GWB, Condoleezza Rice made. The origin of ISI can be found in the dismissing of Saddam Hussein army, cutting them loose without pay forcing these generals, captains, etc to form their own to fight the American/British coalition by any means necessary.
As for the unasked for words regarding male sexual organs' sizes, my, one has to pause, to reflect on your words, hawkeye. Do you feel inadequate because you believe Mother Nature denied you your "natural" due? Do you feel inferior to African American men? The African American is no threat to you in a world of white supremacy. So why the continued anger? Oh, yeah, right, Obama is black and is considered the most powerful man in the world! Geez! That's enough to make a red neck foam at the mouth. Shh! Calm down...grab a paper napkin and wipe the froth off your chin. The only answer one can think of for you, Hawkeye, is that you seem to feel so small and insignificant, that you keep harping on "affirmative action....." Cheer up! Life, for what's its worth is simply not fair to all people, neither is Mother Nature. Look at the struggling African American whose plight even during a time of plenty seems to get worse.
