Hillary Will Use Laws To Make You Reject Your Faith
Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will.
Dr. Rosen: Does the speech that Mrs. Clinton gave to the Women’s World Summit disturb any of you?
Dr. Ruth: It certainly disturbs me. I find it hard to believe that she said this, and to a women’s group.
Dr. Michelle: I was beginning to warm up to her. I thought many of the things that were being said about her were sexists or prejudicial. I thought she might make a good first woman president. Things like these, if she actually would try to implement them, would turn women against her. Also her legacy in history would not be very positive.
Dr. Edwards: I think our country would accept a woman president. But it would have to be on the order of Margaret Thatcher in the UK or Angela Merkel in Germany.
Dr. Milton: Those two were indeed very powerful women. They were admired not only in the US but throughout the world. I’ve never understood why Margaret Thatcher always had an all- male cabinet.
Dr. Ruth: Don’t you think that was a power move? She certainly lasted a long time. I would agree that we don’t have a woman of that caliber on the American horizon at this time. I’m thoroughly disillusioned by Mrs. Clinton. Of course, as a physician my disillusionment began with Hillary Care under husband Bill.
Dr. Michelle: I also think such statements about forcing people to change their religious belief would offend not only women, but also men.
Dr. Edwards: German Chancellor Angela Merkel is also a powerful woman. To be the first Chancellor of the European Union and to be so respected throughout the world is truly a remarkable accomplishment. I understand that she made the Time Magazine Cover as Person of the year.
Dr. Patricia: Mrs. Clinton would never achieve such respect. As her term would unfold we would be ashamed to have such a leader. And to be the first woman president with such disrespect would disenfranchise women for a long time. What other women are out there?
Dr. Rosen: I’ve always admired Carly Fiorina. She was named the most powerful woman in American business by Fortune magazine and in 1999 was named president/CEO of one of the world’s most important technology companies, Hewlett-Packard. Although her acquisitions were criticized, she did double the size of HP during her term. Interviews with some of the Board members after she was forced out, stated that they regretted their decisions as being inappropriately swayed by former owners. She has worked in Defense and sat at a table with Putin once. She made some of the best proposals during the debates for restoring America’s Sixth fleet to it former eminence. I think she made a mistake by shooting too high politically for her first elected jobs. I would think she’d make a good Secretary of Defense. She has an MBA as well as a MS in management from MIT.
Dr. Ruth: I like that. I think I’ll pay more attention to her in the future.
Dr. Michelle: So will I. Thanks for her resume, Rosen.
