I really like the woman, because she has the potential to make men quiver in their boots. If you don't believe me watch when the Republicans grilled her on Benghazi. She is a tough lady and a good role model for women.

After reading that a lot of people on the left don't like her I decided to do research on her stance on the issues:
http://www.ontheissues.org/...

Some of the things I agree with and others I don't.

She is really quite a bit of a hawk. Probably more so than Obama. :( Her vote for the Iraq war truly bothered me, but I guess I could say the same about a lot of other Democrats.

She is pro death penalty, which I don't like.

Some of the stuff she's done on education really isn't bad at all, but then some of the other stuff isn't.

She is actually in support of making the war on drugs less harsh.

Lastly her stance on woman's issues. Any candidate I vote for has to support that.

This is not everything but just a quick rundown. I welcome a discussion on her stance on the issues as I am not as knowledgable about certain things, like free trade and immigration for instance. I am on daily kos to educate myself because I understand the politics of a lot of things which is why I'm a pragmatist. (My uncle works for Nancy Pelosi). But I don't understand the issues as much and my emotions can sometimes get in the way of me understanding them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
