As far as women in high government positions are concerned, America is a 4th World country. While Chile inaugurated its first woman president, the Democrats meet to find some way to avoid nominating one.
Using the time tested gender demeaning language and flexing the muscles that determine power and courage as masculine prerogatives, the DNC vultures flock together with the woman haters in blogs and lists [under the direction of Karl Rove] to defeat Senator Clinton if she runs in 2008.
Our male dominated society has not changed its attitude toward women, albeit subtly masked in many respects, from what it was in Roman time.
"If we could survive without a wife, citizens of Rome, all of us would
do without that nuisance." So proclaimed the Roman general, statesman,
and censor Quintus Caecilius Metellus Macedonicus, in 131 B.C. Still,
he went on to plead, falling birthrates required that Roman men
fulfill their duty to reproduce, no matter how irritating Roman women
might have become. "Since nature has so decreed that we cannot manage
comfortably with them, nor live in any way without them, we must plan
for our lasting preservation rather than for our temporary pleasure."
-The Return of Patriarchy by Phillip Longman
But there is a bright spot in South America where recently elected President
Michalle Bacholet has formed a cabinet of 10 women and 10 men. Imagine that kind of gender parity in this country!?! Especially with the Dem jocks lining up with the Repub jocks to defeat Senator Clinton.
Difficult isn’t it when we read the lists and blogs, where determined grass roots denizens flit from one Dem possible candidate for president to another, depending on how much they agreed with them on any particular day or hour.
There one really sees the anti-woman candidate as comment after comment declares that they have nothing against a woman president, but… and then they proceed to proclaim that Senator Clinton cannot possibly win. AND THE REASONS THEY GIVE COME FROM THE FRANTIC PEN OF KARL ROVE.
No agenda, no plan, no candidate follows the Republican Party line better than those on various Dem- advocate lists unless it is the nameless DC politicos who meet secretly in groups and plot to run someone who can beat Hillary.
We find it deplorable that no one seems to note how well prepared for the job Senator Clinton is. They just see the absence of pelvic brains. If they could just lift their heads above the gender thing, they would see as we do that they have already a ticket that the Repugs cannot beat--
Presidential Candidate, Senator Clinton and VP Candidate, Senator Barack Obama. These two are a veritable brain trust, a treasure trove of experience and Liberalism and between them they represent the majority of Democratic base and a giant step out of the 17th Century.
It’s time America entered the 21st Century and utilized the vast abilities of women who can not only govern but can anticipate the consequences of their actions - Women who do not have to wage war to counteract their impotence.
