For those of you who said "no"
What are your reasons (besides maybe being a republican)?

Just curious.

If she were a man, I'd think people would have a totally different opinion of her. Why won't people just come out and say they aren't comfortable with a woman being President?

I'm strongly considering voting for her. I'm still looking into her politics and learning what she's all about. What I know so far, I like. Her humanitarian and environmental work is very admirable. I'm in a crazy liberal blue state, though. We only care about stuff like environmental issues and animal rights. If only we could latch onto Canada and become part of it. Hillary can be our Pres! I'm doubtful that much of the U.S. will accept Hillary, for reasons that they don't want to disclose.

Ok, you don't have to get all defensive...
Gekko....you are entitled to like and dislike whomever you want but there has to be a reason other than you just don't like her.
Is it her personality? her politics? what is it?

I like her a lot, I live in NY and support her political positions. I think she is a very intelligent woman and could make a strong leader for this country. Just trying to understand the "I just don't like her" people.

OK gekko, ususally when i don't like someone it's for a specific reason....you are entitled to your own opinion. I was just curious.
you are entitled to your own opinion.

Having met her, I can't stand her. It was more than the strong opinionated thing. I can handle that. She was just a snobby b***h.

That being said, I'd vote for her if I had to - if the Republicans put up another neo-con. I'd rather not though.

I would hate for her to win the primary, but if she does, I'd have to vote for her.

I would suggest that you all read Rewriting History by Dick Morris. He was a Clinton insider/aide during Bill's WhiteHouse stint. It was veeeery enlightening. It's amazing the sh*t she gets away with and the media seems to have no memory with her. With anybody else, they would tear them apart for remaking the past. Just my 2cents. My DH has the book and I pick it up from time to time when I'm in the "throne room."

Also, I have no problem with women in power...I just don't want HER in that much power!
No. Make that Oh Hell No!!

No I won't vote for her, I'm dreading this upcoming political season. Thank god I have the doorbell disabled so I won't be pestered during the Iowa Caucus.

I hear a lot of people say that they don't like her because she's strong willed and opinionated.
Really? People actually say they don't like her because she's "strong willed and opinionate"? Or is that what you hear because it's easy to argue against?

I don't like her because I think she's obnoxious. Am I the only one who remembers her rolling her eyes and acting like a snotty teenager through so so so many speeches right after 9.11? She's just rude.

No one would be saying these things about a man. And I'm 100% sure that if it was a completely different woman running, people would be pulling excuses out their asses not to vote for her just like they are now. I feel that as a woman, it's my job be supportive of women in power. Even if was someone like Condi running, whose stances I don't agree with, I'd at least give her a chance. Think about the doors it could open for us, having a woman in the White House. I don't think Hillary Clinton's personality is the most pleasing, but I'm willing to put those feelings aside for a moment to listen to what she has to say.
I don't like her for these reasons.....She comes across as holier then thou, she is out for her name not the little people like us, she was already president once even if it was officially, she completely comes across as a snobby witch...and not anything to do with strong willed an opinionated becasue I am the same. Boils down to this.....I was put more trust in my fat weiner dog to rescue me in a snow storm before I would Hilary. I just don't trust her

I vote for the candiate because I agree with they're view on the issues. Sex, religion, or race have nothing to do with my vote.
