    judging women by their husband's accomplishments.  That's like some nightmare right out of the 50s.

      and it's amazingly dense of you to think otherwise. Hillary Clinton is a remarkably accomplished woman in her own right. May I remind you that she was a well-regarded senator from NY and served as perhaps one of the most highly regarded secretaries of state in recent years. The point I was making is that she and Bill are a political team and have always been so. The fact that Bill came through for Obama created a debt that will be paid along with the debt Obama owes Hillary quite independently of her husband. You're getting all this, right? Do I need to go on?

      Voting is the means by which the public is distracted from the realities of power and its exercise.

        but in listing HRC's qualities in your earlier post, you included Bill Clinton's great speeches.  

        HRC is an average public speaker, while her husband is one of the greatest public speakers in the nation.  You listed his speeches as one of her achievments.  It's demeaning to women to judge one by her husband's accomplishments.  

        Understand?
