With so many of my friends and the media talking about how transformational an Obama presidency would be, I keep thinking, what could be more transformational for our culture than 50% of the population, for the first time, being able to look at the President and think, "that could be me"?
I don’t agree with everything Robin Morgan says in this piece, but I love this: "Me, I’m voting for Hillary not because she’s a woman—but because I am."
Gender aside, I am very swayed by this dissection of one of their few significant policy differences, health care. One of the great benefits of experience – and failure – is that you get to learn from it. She learned a lot from her first pass at getting us all universal health care. She is not going to make the same mistakes again. Her plan would cover vastly more people at a fractionally higher cost.
And in the end, while I concede he is a better public speaker when he has a script, I think she kicked his ass in the debates.
I want a President who can think on her feet.
