'08 Presidential Race

  1. It seems like I'm hearing a lot of speculation that Hillary Clinton will be running for President in 2008. I know that it is extremely early to be forming an opinion, but would you vote for H. Clinton?

    My answer is no, but I am quite interested in seeing what her chances would be in an "allnurses" election.

    Rest assured that the climate of the "Allnurses.com" bulletin board is politically conservative.

    The "No" option will most probably be sky high in the polls here!

    that would be a "hell no" for me. I actually listened (i was at work) to her interview last night and one word can sum it up. SMUG! well and rehearsed, her answers were just to smooth and slick, IMO, wouldn't be surprised if Babwa Wawas gave her the questions beforehand. (i know, she probably didn't, but it really seemed that way!)

    LOL! I was thinking the SAME thing after I voted and was scrolling down to read everyone's responses! For me, it has nothing to do with her being democrat or republican. I just don't like (and don't trust) HER.

    Me too . ."hell no" . . . and I agree that it isn't a Democrat or Republican thing . . . I do not trust her and think she let all women down (including her daughter) when she stayed with such a low-life who would make such selfish choices and hurt his family.

    There was a discussion on a local radio station about this just this morning. Many ppl did want a woman in office someday, but not particularly Hillary.

    I usually vote Republican unless there is a Democrat who really stands out.

    Glad you were able to watch TV while working. Last time I did that was the wedding of Charles & Diana (night shift with a patient).
    Seriously, she didn't succeed with healthcare reform did she?

    actually, I was listening on my walkman that picks up tv signals, so I was listening while I worked. (not at a hospital, for the USPS)

    I didn't vote for her for senator and won't for President.
    As a few others have said, it has nothing to do with her being a Democrat. I vote for the best candidate, in my own opinion, not party line.
    I don't trust her.

    Personally I think she would make a great president. But there is too much passionate dislike for her to ever make it. So it's a mute point. Whenever the topic comes up in conversation I'm usually the only fan of Hilliary's. But then again, she is wildly popular in the Gay/Lesbian community.

    I hate that she didn't dump that two timing husband of hers. But I also respect her stance on health care and human rights. It's a bit soon of course since we don't know the other candidates, but I would definately vote for her.

    She is doing a fine job as NY State senator. She works hard to represent our state's interests. Hope she stays here and not seek bid for the presidency.
