    If you want a corporate moderate, the front-runner is more experienced. Gillbrand has been right on the money on this however, this whole time and deserves enormous credit and about 5 more votes for it.  Talk to Clair.

      but she was for more Iran sanctions, which to my mind is being for war.   I heart Hillary and she'll make a fine president, but my only concern with her is that she's perhaps a little trigger happy talky.  Nowhere near neo-con and probably is factually what makes a woman electable, but Kristan is worse on that one, without all the great administrative experience.

      What if she promised the Senate that men would still be in charge of these trials, just not the men in the chain of command of the accused?  Maybe they think there would be women involved in determining guilt or innocence and object to that? I'm sure Rand Paul and Inhofe and a few others simply don't believe in rape.  Where is Todd Akin when we need his vote. You can't make this stuff up.

        The legal standard in the courts is no longer "would a reasonable person (man) consider this harrassment", but rather "woiuld a reasonable WOMAN consider it harrassment".

        (That sound you are hearing is a paradigm being shifted at Warp Factor Infinity using no clutch.)
