No this is not another I won't vote for her in a general election diary. The reason why most of us who say we won't vote for her under any circumstances will probably end up pulling the level for her will be the fact that we can't stand her Republican opponent. As a nominee she really would be the ultimate lessor of two evils. Hillary has now backed away from her charge that her poor performance at the debate was a result of being ganged up on by men. She now states it was because she's winning in the polls.
Then why do surragates of hers continue making the case that she's the agrieved woman? Gerry Ferraro;
They say we’re playing the gender card. We are not. We are not. We have got to stand up. It’s discrimination against her as a candidate because she is a woman.
The reason is because Hillary knows that the potential for backlash is MUCH greater if she keeps up with the woe is me card. For Hillary to continue to play into that line of thinking is demeaning to one of the few virtues of her candidacy, a strong woman who could lead the country. What Hillary is doing again is trying to have it both ways like she does on everything,send a "feminist hero" out there as a proxy to make the case that Hillary is the victim of angry men while publicly stating that she should be considered on her merits. It embarassing for our party and while a Republican president may be even worse, I dont' want to see Hillary as our president. It would mean she is rewarded for always taking the most tactical and cynical angle on everything include who she is as a person. Hopefully there's still time for an alternative. Michelle Obama and Elizabeth Edwards should get out in front of this in the early states because I believe when women find out the specifics of the game Hillary is trying to play here it won't go over to well.
