Rep. Michele Bachmann does not think much of a possible Hillary Clinton run for president, because Benghazi! And Obamacare! But Bachmann also has some thoughts
about the demand for a female president, and it seems to boil down to some version of "if they didn't want me, they probably don't want any woman." (Although it's perhaps relevant that Clinton would not be seeking the votes of Republican primary voters.)
Bachmann says a lot of people “aren’t ready” for a female president. “I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt.” (Presumably she means because of slavery and the lengthy denial of civil rights to blacks.) “People don’t hold guilt for a woman,” she says, adding that while people vote for women for virtually every other office “I don’t think there is a pent-up desire” for a woman president.
She says while Obama was “new and different,” Hillary Clinton has been around a long time and is less likely to stir the juices as Obama did.
So when Michele Bachmann ran for president, it was because she thought there was demand for her as an individual (except not that much demand, as it turned out), but the only reason for Hillary Clinton to run or have success would be that she's a woman? And if all Clinton has in her favor is being a woman and that
didn't work for Bachmann, then Benghazi, which no one cares about, and Obamacare, which she was not directly involved with and which by 2016 will be providing affordable health care for an awful lot of people, mean Clinton has no hope whatsoever? Despite the strong poll numbers? But by contrast, of course, Barack Obama was only elected president because of the great cachet of being a black man in our society.
All you can really say is, this is how Michele Bachmann thinks. And no, it usually doesn't make much sense.
