Can Anyone Blame Sen. Clinton?

The numbers don’t exactly appear to be in her favor, but Sen. Hillary Clinton is fighting tooth and nail to pursue her dream of being the first female to win the highest position in the country. After her win in the Pennsylvania primary last night by almost 10% over Sen. Barack Obama, she may well see this fight all the way through to the Democratic Convention in August.
Sure, she would have to have a landslide in every primary that is left, and she would have to get the support of every superdelegate to come close to beating Sen. Obama, and many pundits and voters are begging her to pull out of the race for the sake of the Democratic Party’s chance in November. But what’s wrong with letting her duke it out to the end? If she pulls out now, won’t people just call her a wimp and argue that a woman was never meant to win the presidency?
Do you think Sen. Clinton should bow out, or should she try everything she can to pursue and achieve her dream? [CNN.com]

I believe at this time, that she knows that she will not get the nomination. Hilary has always wanted this and this is and has been her main dream. Pulling out does not make her look like she is a wimp. It shows that caring side that real women possess that has kept this nation together and it shows that she cares about her party and not her own self interest. Her race has brought out the issue of prejudice in America but the good part is that it has shown that in America race is not becoming an issue anymore. Obama is black and white. Let us not forget that. Hilary is to aggressive and she really makes it bad for other women who are or could become the first woman president. I truly believe that Americans have no problem in electing a woman but not Hilary. There is to much baggage.


If you don't reach for the stars and follow your dreams then you will be dissapointed in yourself for not trying. Lets not judge, lets give a standing ovation for anyone who can pull off becoming our next President. If I had the money I would have ran myself.
