Looking forward to 2012 – Pantsuits vs. Cool Glasses

We love you too, Hillary!

We love you too, Hillary!

I found this little gem today:

Women Voters Prefer Hillary Clinton to Sarah Palin in 2012 By a 2-to-1 Margin

National Poll Finds Broad Support for Hillary On Politics, ‘Trust,’ ‘Role Model’ and Other Values

NEW YORK, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ — Hillary Clinton would beat Sarah Palin head-to-head by a 2-to-1 margin if the 2012 presidential election were held today, according to women voters.


A national telephone survey of 600 registered women voters was conducted by Blum & Weprin from September 25 through October 3, 2008. The poll, commissioned by SheZoom.com, a new women’s internet media company, is titled ‘Palin vs. Clinton – You Decide.’ The survey (with a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points) queried women in all 50 states on their personal and political preferences pertaining to the two female party leaders.

 The poll asks questions relating to presidential responsibilities, as well as personality and “values” questions important to female voters. For all areas, the survey shows Clinton with broad-based support, including the “values” questions, such as “Whom do you trust?”; “Who’s a better role model?”; and “Who’s been a better mother?” On all these issues, Clinton wins by at least 10 points. [NB: The poll’s results did not shift in any significant way following Thursday’s vice presidential debate.]

The poll’s other findings include:

— The preference for Clinton is widest in handling the responsibilities of a President. Clinton is seen as doing a better job dealing with the economy by a 40 percent margin and as more effective in dealing with foreign leaders by 48 percent.

— Clinton also holds a substantial edge in character and personal issues.

— American women voters not only admire Hillary Clinton more, they also relate to her more than to Sarah Palin. While the margin is not as wide as in the presidential job responsibilities, women see Clinton’s values as closer to their own and would rather have Hillary Clinton as a friend.

— While Clinton comes out on top again in her role as a mother, this is an area where many women felt they could not or would not judge or compare these women.

— A third of the women polled say their views of Clinton have become more positive. Only a tiny minority has a more negative view than a year ago. Fifty-six percent of women said their views are unchanged.

— On the 2008 vote, registered women voters favor Obama/Biden over McCain/Palin by a significant margin (51 percent to 35 percent).

“In short, Hillary wins on all counts,” said pollster Mickey Blum, of Blum & Weprin. “When analyzing the data, we looked to see if there were areas in which Palin came out on top. But, on virtually every level, Hillary takes it. I think this primary season, this entire campaign, humanized her. In a lot of ways, she took a beating and kept her grace. And Americans, especially American women, like fighters. This poll shows just how much women identify with Hillary. Obviously, that’s what the McCain campaign was looking to tap into with Sarah Palin. This polls shows that it hasn’t worked, at least not yet.”

“This is an unprecedented time for women in politics, “said Stacey Artandi, founder and CEO of SheZoom.com. “This election season has put two unique women in the spotlight in Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. On many measures, they couldn’t be more different — in their ideologies, their styles, and their experiences. Regardless of what happens in the November election, Senator Clinton and Governor Palin have changed the face of the political landscape for women. And they will remain forces in the future. American women’s answers to our questions give a sense of how we perceive Palin and Clinton, how well we relate to them, and perhaps a hint of what’s to come.”


WELL NO SH*T, SHERLOCK!!!   This is the kind of crap that sets me off.  Hillary by far is the more experienced, more representative candidate of the MAP and not the confabulated delegate math OF ALL THE 2008 candidates and has more solutions to the problems Americans (and the world) face, regardless of shape, gender, religion, ethnicity, wallet-size, etc.  

WHY didn’t more women support her during the primary if this is how they truly felt?   Oh yeah, the DNC cheated to push the penised-one.   I can wait for 2012.  For now, I’m leaving Sarah Palin alone.  But come 2012, Sarah Palin will have this PUMA in her face supporting Hillary all the way.  Regardless of what happens this ’08 election, I’m voting for the WOMAN, yes, no matter what party she belongs to.  And in 2012, I’m voting for HILLARY.

This poll clearly demonstrates two major questions that need to be resolved if women are to be considered more than just chattel to Democrats and to the country itself: A) Why did the female leaders of the DNC sell out the more experienced candidate who WON the electoral map against John McCain for an inexperienced man and B) Are we going to let this happen again?  

I, for one, cannot.   We MUST keep pressing onward in our battle to defeat the 2008 DNC at all costs.  If we do not, our liberal principles and “one person/one vote” will be sold to the next charlatan that talks about “hope and change.” 

¡Que viva los PUMAs!
