  •  My Mother loves her and I think that her (5+ / 0-)

    adoration is more about style than exclusively politics.  My Mom is more liberal, but from what I can tell there is a perceived bond that really is centered around the fact that Clinton doesn't let the old guard (or new guard) boys push her around - or also as important she doesn't let the boys use her.

    It is interesting that the fact that Palin was being used by McCain and those boys was so quickly spotted by so many women in America.

    Anyway, I think Clinton is "ok".  Not great, but ok.  But I know what my Mom sees in her and I sort of think that I should be as enchanted because the trail blazing that Clinton and people like my Mother did in their careers left doors open for me that I didn't have to work as hard to go through - and to stand their ground once inside - as they did.

    Women half my age haven't clue what these women did for them.  They might have watched and though "belligerent" was a good adjective, but they haven't a clue what the reality of that old/new boys club really is.
