Why a woman President? Why a Black President? Why a Latino President? Or an Asian President? Maybe a Native American President?
It is surely not because we are trying to fill a quota or just because we can. It is because most of us want to bring a new and different perspective to the most powerful office on Earth and to the face we show the world.
Don’t vote for Hillary because she has female parts. Vote for Hillary because she has a woman’s touch. Vote for Hillary because she has a woman’s sensitivity. Vote for Hillary because she has a woman’s sensibility….not because she can do the job like a man. Sadly, most of the woman leaders of the world have all been measured by the standards of men. That is unfair and unrealistic. Maybe that is why things never change.
The majority of Americans want a woman for President, so………..let her be one. She doesn’t have to act like a man. She doesn’t have to think like a man. She doesn’t have to perform like a man. Don't pigeon hole her. She is a woman. Ego and bluster have been the order of the day for far too long and have very bad track records.
The male figures in all of our lives contribute very different things than our female figures. Our “Moms” hold a much different place in our hearts than our “Dads”. Their roles are distinctly unique and equally important, and necessary for the balance we need to move forward. So it is with a nation. We not only want a woman to lead our nation, we NEED a woman to lead our nation. We need a different perspective.
So…allow Hillary Clinton be a woman. Don’t expect her to be like a man. Let her show her soft, caring side. Her vulnerable side. Her sensitive side. Let her talk as if she were having a Mother-Daughter talk with Chelsea.
That is the true difference between a man and woman, whether they are parents or leaders.
