Whom do you prefer, Hilary R. or Hillary C.?

But even if she remains secretary of State, Clinton continues to bask in America's good graces. A Gallup poll last year voted her the most admired woman in the world for the ninth straight year. Palin--one of Clinton's possible 2016 GOP opponents--was second. Both beat out Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama.
Of Clinton, ex-Vice President Dick Cheney said: "Perhaps she might have been easier for some of us who are critics of the president to work with. I have a sense that she is one of the more competent members of the current administration, and it would be interesting to speculate about how she might perform were she to be president."
If Clinton does make the run in four years and wins, it would be history in the making on two counts. The "glass ceiling" for American women would be shattered once and for all, and it would be the first time a husband and wife have been elected to the highest office in the land. Wouldn't that be a trip? Whoa!
So whom do you prefer, Rosen or Clinton? As an independent who votes carefully, my clear choice is Clinton--despite my disdain for her husband. I simply can't abide the disgraced Bill Clinton's extramarital sex in the White House, which led to his righteous impeachment. Too bad he wasn't convicted. Regardless, his wife is a gem.
As the new, old saying goes, "You go, girl." And that's the name of that tune.
