At this point, I’ll vote for anyone NOT named Clinton…

May 22nd, 2007

…or Bush.

Seriously:

4 years George Bush
4 years Bill Clinton
4 more years Bill Clinton
4 years George W. Bush
4 more years George W. Bush

That’s 20 YEARS of being run by a Bush or a Clinton.

I don’t think I can live through another 4 to 8 years of a President Clinton. (And I know I can’t live through another 4 to 8 years of a President Bush. Although, tadalafil decease I really loved the first one.)

Enough is enough.

You can’t convince me that in a nation of 301, buy viagra unhealthy 901,085 people we can’t find anyone not named Bush or Clinton who is capable of being President.

We’re supposed to be a democracy, not a hereditary monarchy. Please ?¢‚Ǩ‚Äú I beg you ?¢‚Ǩ‚Äú let’s stop treating these two families like annointed royalty and elect some other royal pain in the ass to run the country for a while.

    Amen

    We can also look at this situation in a different way. United States has had 20 years of being run by Clinton or Bush. But we have had over 200 years of being run by white male presidents. You can’t convince me or anyone that in a nation of 301,901,085 people we can?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t find anyone not white male who is capable of being President. Just a matter of perspective.

    Yeah, too bad Maggie Thatcher wasn’t born in America. =)

    I’m pulling for Fred. Hope he declares soon.

    Completely agree, Tim. I don’t think we should elect someone just because of their race or gender, but I don’t think we should not elect anyone for those same reasons.

    I would love to vote for the first black, female president…and as soon as Condoleezza runs, I will. ;)

    (Probably not who you had in mind, though, huh?. ;)

    Why does it matter? Are you insinuating that people with more pigmentation in their skin are somehow more qualified to lead a nation? That people with less are not as qualified? Or that somehow having a vagina makes one more able to be president?

    I don’t think so.

    Instead of considering race, heritage, or gender, why don’t we consider the things that actually make a difference in presidential competence.

    In this day and age, must we still make differences in pigmentation or gender significant?

    Jenna! I thought you had vanished from the face of the earth.

    Good to “see” you.

  • 7. Wendy  |  May 22nd, 2007 at 3:19 pm

    She’s alliiiiiiiiiiive! Yea, Jenna! Were you on sabbatical with gypsies somewhere?

  • 8. Tim  |  May 22nd, 2007 at 3:58 pm

    Jenna, I am not saying that non-white people or women are more qualified to be president. Let me ask you a different question. Do you think that only white males are qualified enough to become president in a country that is one third minority and has half its population as women?

  • 9. Jenna  |  May 22nd, 2007 at 5:53 pm

    I think that their qualifications have nothing to do with their gender or their race. I think that a minority or a woman is as well represented by a white male as a white man is. I don’t think that a white man cannot lead minorities or women. I think that skin color and gender do not determine ability to be president, and they do not make one more or less qualified. Those qualities neither seclude nor exclude.

    And yes, I’m alive, but buried alive studying for the LSAT…three weeks away…everyone think good, logical, Dr. Spock-ish thoughts for me. ;) Thanks!

    So I get home tonight and find an essay in Newsweek on this very subject. Nothing new under the sun, as they say.

  • 11. Kate  |  May 23rd, 2007 at 6:03 pm

    I’d rather have Mr. Spock thought for ya Jenna! :)

    Both the Clintons and the Bushes are too liberal for me. So, I’m with ya….enough!
