    Aging feminist and non-breeder Gloria Steinem recently suggested that "young women support Bernie Sanders only to chase boys." Yes, folks. That is an actual quote from a preeminent feminist who was possibly relevant and influential thirty years ago.

    Finally, former secretary of state and senility-signaling Madeleine Albright declared that women who don't vote for Hillary will spend an eternity of torture burning in the pit of fire.

    And come November, all of those women are going to cast their votes for Donald Trump or Ted Cruz?

    Bernie Sanders is not going to be the Democratic nominee for President. Hillary Clinton is. At which point all of those people who don't think she is liberal enough; or has too many ties to Wall Street; or whatever else are going to have to make a choice.

    A choice between voting for the first woman President. The President who will protect a woman's right to choose; to get access to family-planning and other health services. Or voting for one of the extremists who are currently seeking the Republican nomination.

    Don't fall into the trap of confusing your personal dislike of Hillary Clinton with reality. And I think you'll find four of six months from now, things will look very different.

    Lol, all those women will be voting for Hillary in November! Jesus, I don't understand why these Bernie supporters think he has a chance...look at a freaking MAP! It is NOT happening. Women will realize they are one step closer to having a woman President and will flock to Hillary in the general election.

    Yeah. Because a skirt on the POTUS is all that matters.

    I doubt its all that matters, but I'd rather us make history (yet again). This country needs to move forward. It is about time we had a woman President. Hillary is the most qualified for this position out of the Dem/Rep, no matter how many mistakes she has. Her resume is impressive!

    I'd say about half will vote Democrat and half will vote for Marco Rubio.

    In all probability, she will be the nominee - no problem. Let's see who gets it first.

    Also, people have choice as individuals - to vote for whom, they wish, without needing to be encouraged for sake of emotionally-induced populism.... or else we're far more socialist than we'd ever consciously ever admit to. ;) Especially the Republicans, heavy irony alert. ;) ;) :D

    What major accomplishments did she have as Secretary of State or during her time in the Senate? She does have more qualifications than a lot of the Republican field, but she's not necessarily that much more qualified than Sanders, or any of the governors running on the Republican side.

    Well, that assumes Rubio will be the Republican nominee. Not outside the realm of possibilities, to be sure.

    But if that happens, how will Rubio fare on the general election campaign trail? How is he going to square the circle of Republican opposition to things like birth control, abortion, Planned Parenthood, and immigration - with the fact that most women have very different views.

    Rubio could be an appealing candidate (fashionable boots notwithstanding). But when wrapped up in prevailing Republican dogma - not so much.

    If Hillary gets the nomination, it will end up shaking out just like the last Governor's race did in MA.

    The Dems forced Martha Coakley down everyone's throat for the nominee just because they wanted to put another woman in office. It failed because she is a loser and the Republican won. Expect the same thing to happen in November if Hillary is the nominee. Hillary is a loser and a liar and even many democratic supporters hate her.

    I'll vote for the Republican extremist over Hillary all day. At least the Republican extremists don't try to hide the fact that they are Republicans like Hillary does.

    So is her unpublished rap sheet.

    So lethal, she puts career felons to shame.

    Yet fortunately for Hillary, her power, influence and money have bought her immunity and freedom.

    When Hilary wins, I'm turning straight to FOX so I can see the same somber and pitiful reaction they had when Obama won his first term. It's going to be GREAT!!! :D

    He's not winning. Not that I would mind if he does, but he's not.

    You better hope he does because if not you're looking at President Rubio.

    I think comparisons between Hillary Clinton and Martha Coakley are slender, at best.

    Hillary Clinton won election as Senator in New York. Despite having limited public-service experience outside her time as First Lady. And I'd argue that New York is a moderately less liberal/Democratic stronghold than Massachusetts.

    Since that time she has immensely added to her resume. Her first campaign for the Democratic nomination, while it ended up unsuccessful - added greatly to her credibility. She managed to concede the nomination to Obama in a graceful, but pointed fashion. Her term as Secretary of State was overall highly effective; polishing her international relations qualifications in a way few Republicans can come close to matching. Hillary is probably on a first-name basis with more world leaders than anybody alive right now. Merkel; Cameron; Putin - she's met them all. (Could Martha Coakley say the same? Could Martha Coakley come close?)

    Saying that Hillary Clinton's reluctance to smash up Citigroup and Goldman Sachs makes her a closet Republican is just nonsense. I'd far rather live in a country where abortion, birth control, and big financial institutions all exist than the Republican alternative. Which is one where only one of them still rules.

    Hillary will not win the general election. She has too much baggage and too much hate from the key groups she would need in order to win (real progressives, young people, and independents).

    Sorry, but you can't win an election when you only have support from women over age 50.
