For the past few months, Hillary Clinton’s name has been vetted for the 2016 Presidential nomination and as I sip my coke, munch my chips, and then think: who in the hell said she would get the nomination?
White folks are so scared and fed up with Obama’s Black ass; they are traveling to the future–at least to appease their fear a bit, just literally giving the Presidency to this woman and I’m like WAIT JUST ONE DAMN MINUTE!
Just because she’s a woman doesn’t mean that WE are going to vote for her. And what has she done for Black women anyway?
She’s a very ambitious woman and has proven that she has very strong administrative skills; that alone is not enough.
Many Black people, particularly Black women, have not how she ran her Presidential campaign in 2008. She purposely appealed to white voters–and hinted that she was not above “dirty” politics, at the other candidates expense…if necessary. She is from Chicago originally.
So…the prevailing question remains: Why Should African American Women Support Hillary Clinton?
It’s true that before Barack Obama won the Iowa caucus, Hillary was “their girl”. And let us not forget the emotional high some Black people had because of her last name; for those who were tired of the Bush years, somehow, a win would actually bring back the “good ole days” of the Clinton’s.
I’m not sure about who is going to win the 2016 Presidential bid, but I’m stating bluntly that there are many more powerful names that are going to be in that race, Republican (Chris Christie); and Democrat(Corey Booker, Deval Patrick) just to name a few.
And I’ll tell you the truth, I might actually vote across party lines if I like the other candidate.
It’s not a cut deal yet.
My advice to Hillary Clinton is not to get comfortable yet.
Some people are tired of the Clinton’s…and won’t hesitate to remind her of that.
