A more ominous quote has yet to be made concerning a possible woman in the White House. At a birthday party for Hillary Clinton last October, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) delivered a toast that included, “If Hillary couldn’t win the White House, I don’t know which woman can.”
Those words resonate throughout the Democratic Party, as they gear up to face their hated enemy, President Donald J. Trump, in 2020. Is there truly a viable female candidate to take on that task? For that matter, is there anyone presently on the Democratic bench that can defeat Trump in three years?
Some of the party’s strongest potential candidates are considered to be women. They include rookie California Sen. Kamala Harris, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
Should those names strike terror among Republicans? All three are considered to be part of the far-left movement of their party. That consists of approximately 20 percent of the American electorate. But, woman or no woman, that is not an overwhelming percentage for any opponent to face.
The liberal’s latest fashionable movement is now the #MeToo cause. Brought on mainly due to liberal men attacking and harassing women, like Hollywood liberal Harvey Weinstein, it is the in place to be these days for the far-left. Naming a white man as their party’s presidential nominee would be “hurtful” and simply not “inclusive.”
The far-left liberals believe Harvey Weinstein’s behavior could undermine Donald Trump’s campaign for a second presidential term. At least that is what their closest allies, the enabling media, make them believe. That means forget about aging Socialist Bernie Sanders, over-the-hill lapdog Joe Biden or never-met-a-camera-he-didn’t-adore Corey Booker.
Hopefully during these lib pow-wows they do not forget Trump’s own surprise run to the 2016 GOP presidential nomination shows the foolishness of political predictions. You never know, maybe 85-year-old Diane Feinstein or 77-year-old Nancy Pelosi will corner the blue hair vote and fool all the youngsters.
Some Democrats also say it makes little sense to nominate a woman as the party’s candidate simply based on gender. Those sane voices are far outnumbered by the George Soros-funded hordes dedicated to 24/7 news cycles.
One would think common sense would drive the Democrats to select a candidate who is tough, authentic and credible, regardless of gender. Nah, that won’t happen with this bunch.
Feinstein’s comment may be chiseled into Democratic lore before the extreme left destroys any semblance of a united party. They may find that Joy Behar’s hateful view that a woman has no chance of any good job is as ridiculous today as the buggy whip in 1900. But the fact that the Democrats in eight short years have lost the House, Senate and presidency does not weigh in, so why should anything else?
As the lynching party of the left, formed in states like far-left New York and California, a little bird needs to sit on their shoulder and whisper an important fact. But the far-left seldom listens to much anyway. Their former goddess, bitter and angry Hillary Clinton, may have hurt their “progressive” cause in “intolerable” states such as Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, which voted for a Republican in 2016 for the first time in decades.
Never mind, that is unimportant to the dim bulbs leading the latest 24/7 issue-driven assault. The trouble is, like General Custer found out, there is extreme opposition to their world in a bubble.
Feinstein says she is optimistic about a woman as president. Of course, this is the same longtime California Democrat who couldn’t even obtain the endorsement of her party for a fifth term as their party’s candidate. The California far, far left doesn’t think she’s easy enough on illegal aliens and higher taxes.
One thing is certain; the far-left is in another world other than this one. Their chosen candidate will fit their bill to a tee. That will include solid credentials with tolerance, inclusion, compassion and the ability to avoid hurtful comments to anyone and anywhere. Good luck, crusaders from political Disneyland.
