NO Comparison

HILL: I’M THE JFK OF 2008

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton invoked the campaign of the nation’s lone Catholic president, John Kennedy, last night as she talked about her challenge in becoming the first female commander-in-chief.

“He was smart, he was dynamic, he was inspiring and he was Catholic. A lot of people back then [1960] said, ‘America will never elect a Catholic as president,’ ” the White House hopeful told the New Hampshire Democrats’ 100 Club fund-raiser here.

“But those who gathered here almost a half century ago knew better,” she said. “They believed America was bigger than that and Americans would give Sen. John F. Kennedy a fair shake, and the rest, as they say, is history.”

Noting women are “the majority” of voters and are in the workforce in “record numbers,” she added, “So when people tell me ‘a woman can never be president,’ I say, we’ll never know unless we try.”

Comparing herself to JFK? Is she planning on being assassinated if elected? Because heaven knows, there’s nothing else I can think of that could possibly be a comparison.

“We no longer have a president who puts people first,” she said, citing veterans waiting for treatment, first responders, single moms needing child care, the middle class and the working poor. “You are invisible to this administration.”

Mrs. Clinton, IMO, sees nothing but her own blind ambition. I have no problem with a woman being POTUS, but not THAT woman.

  1. In today’s political world the sad thing is Kennedy probably wouldn’t get the Democratic nod. And I don’t think she will either..maybe that is the comparisson

  4. If you have to be the one comparing yourself to a great person, the comparison is probably not accurate. If you are the next JFK, others will notice, you don’t have to mention it. Face it, the woman will say anything to get elected.
