Belatedly continuing my ongoing series detailing the three potential candidates for the next US presidency, it is the turn of Hillary ‘Insert stereotypically tenacious creature here” Clinton – aka The First Female President, Question Mark – to receive my disinterested appraisal.
Despite repeatedly being victim to resounding losses, Mrs. Clinton has continued to campaign with all the vigour of someone who clearly doesn’t give a fuck about public opinion – exactly the type of person America is used to voting into office. Despite this apparent advantage, the senate’s most fistable lady of a certain age still seems to be struggling to be heard. Maybe it’s because her accusations that the media ‘has it in for her’ are true, or maybe it’s because she’s a woman? But maybe it’s simply down to the fact that she’s a bit of a twat whose website is littered with pictures like the one below.
On a side note, I always found it interesting how famous American women are praised when they stand by their spouses after they’ve been found to be cheating bastards. I’m sure it’ll be the same in the UK, but I can’t help but think that, in a perfect world, they’d be encouraged to beat the sleazy fuckwits in the groin with a weight that corresponds with their own ego. Oh, Dante how much I could teach you about sweet irony…
Regardless, Clinton is the woman I would vote for if I could. I can’t help but feel that the inevitable lack of any meaningful change after her victory would be far less disappointing than if her fresher-faced competitor should win. It’s a moot point, however, as the entire buzz around this Obama/Clinton face-off is largely driven by the excitement felt by the Democrats for a contest they can’t help but win. At the end of the day, if the average American is faced with a choice between a black man and a strong woman, they’ll chose a gun.
