Running for a Better Job

Maureen Dowd highlights the main problem for women, or those who would like to see a woman as president, Hillary Clinton isn't the person for the job. She has Bill baggage. So much that it's awfully hard for people to forget: I didn't inhale, Gennifer Flowers, health care, Whitewater, Travelgate, Vince Foster, and the abhorrent punchline that she insists on repeating - the Republican Attack Machine.

Let's hope Hillary can shake this in the years to come, provided she's not the next president. Maybe she can adopt health care as her issue and travel the world promoting it. Grow a beard. Win an Oscar. Get the Noble Prize. She can be the great liberal knight, off the stage, 'replenishing the ole coffers', and be an endearing image for generations to come. It sounds better than being president.
