...almost had me

When a woman does ascend through the glass ceiling into the White House, it will be, in part, because of the race of 2008, when Hillary Clinton broke through the glass floor and got down with the boys.
~Bob Ostertag/Huffington Post

Hillary is not Her; that Archetype,

whose time should have come; whom sets us apart,

as The girl among boys—Balls and a heart

and first with both parts, unsuitable stripe.

Hillary has neither, (worse attire),

which bares her bottomless will to succeed

to satisfy such ego-centered need

as eats her own, and sobs as she fires.

Hillary is a Harridan. That man

as running mate is more the Prototype—

from whose mouth the Goddess’ word—comes the seed

to save the future of the panhuman

and the precepts and deeds true to The Type.

Woman! More machismo’s the last thing we need.

Woman! More machismo's the last thing we need. yes we sure gots enough of that! Bless You! Jasmin Horst
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
I'm not sure of your position, but it is clear that while she may be bright and dedicated, experienced and committed, Hillary lacks the humor and charisma to lead the people through the trials to come. I won't mind a woman president when one comes along. Women can lead, too. Hillary just comes from the wrong side of the dynasty. We've had that. The only time it worked was with the Roosevelts.

Reviewed by David Young
Hillary is a strong talented woman. Had she stood proud at the beginning and muzzled Bill and reigned in the Kitchen Sink negativity, she would be leading the Democratic Party. At first she refused to debate among US as this Royal apparent, now we cannot have her shut up dividing US more in mostly racial and gender lines. I am sorry, this is not what a true leader does.

Hillary, as a Presidential candidate you are not a woman, white, or any other factor, but a Democrat, who must have unbiased views in unity. Yes, Hillary, you may be a future President, but "We the people" must hug you without negativity first.

Very good piece! Sorry about the rant. It is good to write things that others can open up with. Bless you with a fine day of singing verse.
