I freely admit to being a bit obsessed with the Guardian. I am far more familiar with the British media than the US.
"Those out to demonise Hillary Clinton should be careful what they wish for”
The Agenda is Set: Elect the War-Hawk for the Sake of “Progress”
Hillary Clinton is the most qualified person to “rule the world”, if she can get around the “insane” US Constitution
Those out to demonise Hillary Clinton should be careful what they wish for”
The choice of the next US president is now so stark that it’s time the left put aside its sneers and pray that this strong woman will get to rule the world”
This is a time to celebrate. At last, a woman leads a major US party to fight for the presidency.
…as the first woman to enter the White House, she will also step through the door as by far the most qualified and experienced arrival there for generations…”
…a searing firestorm of abuse…Why so fierce, so unreasonable, so vitriolic?”
If you are naturally left of centre, especially if you are a woman, yet you find you instinctively dislike her, ask yourself why. There may be some good reasons…
…she’s not as radical as Sanders; she is not a natural rabble-rouser at rallies; she is the wife of a past president; she’s called “robotic” in her careful choice of words; and as a flesh-presser she warms the cockles of few hearts.
If women of the left do break into the bastions of power, the sisters often view them as sell-outs to the establishment, as if permanent outsiderdom and victimhood is the only true mark of feminism.
Unlike most, she knows how to wield the power levers, insofar as the insane US constitution allows any president to carry out their manifesto.
Outside, the world looks on aghast at any possibility America could choose a racist, sexist brute over a feminist with a long track record of standing up for the right causes.”
Rarely has any candidate so deserved their place.
And if you want a reminder of what women like her are up against, just read the comments that will no doubt follow this.
