Hillary Clinton says U.S. needs woman in charge like Germany has Merkel

BERLIN Mon Jun 16, 2014 8:38am EDT

(Reuters) - Hillary Clinton has told a German magazine the United States should follow Germany, where Angela Merkel is chancellor, and have a woman in charge.

She stopped short of saying, however, that it should be her.

"We are way behind you in Germany on this," the former secretary of state told stern magazine in an interview to be published in its next edition on Wednesday.

"Of course I want the U.S.A. to have a woman leader soon as well and I will do all I can for that to happen, though I don't know yet if it will be me," she said.

Clinton, a former senator and the wife of the former U.S. President Bill Clinton, is widely expected to run for the White House in 2016.

Clinton, meanwhile, said she understood Germany's anger at revelations that the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) had listened into Merkel's mobile phone as part of its large scale surveillance of electronic communications in Germany, America's close ally.

"I would be as furious as the Germans are. I would demand that my friend and ally stop eavesdropping immediately," Clinton said, adding however that a "no spy agreement" as demanded by some German politicians was not a practical option.

"It wouldn't be flexible enough," she told stern. "I don't think a written treaty is the right way to do it - and it shouldn't be necessary in the first place."

I don't know if I am offended more by her picking Merkel, or relieved she didn't pick Thatcher.

If Hillary were any more transparent, she'd be invisible. Not that that would be a bad thing.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

If Hillary looked like that, she'd be on Bill's arm 24/7 and Monica Lewinsky would working a register at the Alexandria Target store.

The mere fact that this monster is even considered to be relevant and potentially viable as a world leader is a sure sign that western civilization is headed for collapse.

If she looked like that - she'd lose the election, badly.

Sure, pretty much every male would vote for her. Women out number men.  :tongue2:

Though have you noticed the pattern in voting? Take two guys - the taller candidate gets more votes. The one with better hair gets more votes (why Trump will never be a contender). The one with the more resonant voice gets more votes. Voters are fairly superficial.

...because it is all about identity politics.  Next will be the first openly gay (after the first woman).  Because, of course, there's nothing real or serious happening in the world, so might as well indulge all our fetishes.

We could always put this woman in charge:


At least for the entertainment value of seeing heads explode.
