"But frankly, [Obama] should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people."
- Former Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA), July 2014
Nancy Pelosi is reaching out to a higher power to get Hillary Clinton to run in 2016.
“I pray that Hillary Clinton decides to run for president of the United States,” Pelosi (D-Calif.), the House Minority leader, said during a public appearance in Little Rock, Ark., according to The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
“Nobody has been first lady and senator and now secretary of state,” she added. “Putting everything aside that she is a woman, she’d be the best qualified person that we’ve seen [in recent years].”
Think of the message it sends to women in the world — the most powerful figure in the world is a woman, and she also happens to be the most qualified for the job,” Pelosi said, according to The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
“Most qualified” in what way? The “most qualfied” Democrat? Why is it important for the most “powerful figure in the world” to be a woman? Would she feel the same way if that “most powerful figure in the world” was Sarah Palin? Of course not.
I hate identity politics.
Neither of these women make my ”A” list of ”most qualified” for President. Not even close. (Photo via CNN)
