    So insulting to Secretary Clinton, to be accused of using the ‘woman’s card”, when she is by far the most qualified. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Ironically, men use the “men’s card” every day. If Mrs. Clinton, won the Presidency, it would be huge for women around the world, and long overdue.

      QUALIFIED? While I would love to see a woman president in the US, I want a
      President with integrity and solid gender justice record, not one that
      has supported a coup in Honduras leading to numerous assassinations of
      women’s rights defenders, supported the Iraq war, promoted and pushed
      environmental policies that are destroying our environment (ex.
      Fracking), has a militaristic and hawkish approach inspired by
      Kissinger, has implemented and/or promoted racist policies leaving
      thousands of people of color in jail, criminalized or killed, has made
      numerous racist comments (superpredators, “off the reservation”, etc),
      uses the feminist agenda to push her neoliberal policies, accepts
      corruption and donations that inevitably affect public policies, changes
      her positions according to convenience including her previous positions
      on reproductive health and abortion itself and LGBTQI rights. The
      co-optation of the feminst agenda is harming our movement and continues
      to disrespect feminists of color like me that don’t buy the neoliberal
      feminism promoted by Hillary, essentially privileging white rich women.
      Economic Justice (a huge goal/ideal for women of color) is a key agenda
      of true feminism. Economic justice is crucial for populations that are
      living in poverty, mostly women of color! I understand how many older
      women want very much to see in their life time a woman as president, BUT
      AT WHAT COST?

    While I would love to see a woman president in the US, I want a President with integrity and solid gender justice record, not one that has supported a coup in Honduras and that has a militaristic approach, one that doesn’t even admit her comments are racist ( and policies), one that really cares about women of color like me… The co-optation of the feminst agenda is harming our movement.

      Correction: “…approach….One that doesn’t even admit (I meant to say Hillary doesn’t even admit or apologize for her racist comments)…

    I won’t forget Benghazi; Hillary only cares about herself; she is so out of touch with the American citizens….claiming she and bill were “broke”?! What an insult. She is arrogant, eletist and sneaky. I wouldn’t vote for her to do anything. She (and other politicians) forget that they are here to serve US….”We the people”—-NOT their own self-serving agendas—money, power. It scares me that some people will vote for someone because of their gender or ethnicity.

    O.K. vote for Trump then, and see what you get.

    A lot of Democrats don’t like Hillary, and it has nothing to do with gender. They will vote for her since the alternative is far worse, but will do so while holding their noses
