What gets me is ...

What gets me is that when Hillary Clinton says she is ‘ready on day one’, she actually means that her husband is ‘ready on day one’. I mean, surely this is what she means, because there is nothing to back up the claim otherwise, and she surely is counting her time as First Lady, a traditional ceremonial post as consort of the head of the state, and not as any kind of head of government. Her husband headed the government, not she; it is he who would be ready. The picture I get is Hillary Clinton constantly turning to Bill for his experience; by that I mean this is my picture of her own picture of herself as President.

I think it would be a lot better to have a woman as candidate whose husband was not former President of the United States, and who had confidence in herself, rather than confidence in her husband. Carol Mosely Braun, for example, who ran on her own (though I guess she didn’t get very far :) but not for lack of appeal to me).
