Ray McGovern on "Hillary Clinton and the Gender Card."

Ray McGovern weighs in on one of the prominent subjects under discussion in this primary season (originally published by Consortium News):

"Hillary Clinton is clearly expecting the votes of many women who believe she is entitled to become President because “it is time.” While I agree that it is well past time for a woman to be President, I disagree that it should be Hillary Clinton. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., reminded us that people should not be judged by external factors (whether the color of their skin or, in this case, their gender) “but by the content of their character.”

Hillary Clinton’s record as Secretary of State makes it unmistakably clear that – like her hawkish predecessor Albright – she lacks the level-headedness, vision, and, yes, compassion without which the country’s top diplomat or (even more importantly) the commander in chief can be outright dangerous."

1. Unfortunately

The wise words of Dr. King have long since fallen by the wayside in this primary.
