I support the presidential canadiate, but I would like to see what someone else view her running our country. Would she be effective?

While I would be more than happy to have a woman president, as it would show the rest of the world how awesomely tolerant we are (heh), and we may actually have one in our lifetime, Clinton as president would probably be one of the worst things to happen to America in recent years, and I can say with all honesty that she is worse than all other Democratic candidates (yes, even Gravel), and worse than at least half of the Republicans, for a number of reasons.

First, she is completely alienating, and in a time when we need the most charismatic leader represeting representing in volatile diplomatic talks with nations all over the world, this is unacceptable. Tying into this, the sole fact that she is a woman would discourage a great deal of religiously conservative Arab nations (such as Iran or Saudi Arabia) with cooperating with us diplomatically, and would only lead us closer to war.

Secondly, her foreign policies are idiotic. She has said time and time again that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard is a terrorist organization. In addition, she has said that she wishes to "invade Iran if they refuse to cooperate", which would, at the best, turn into another Iraq War, and worst case scenario will turn into WWIII (now with new and improved NUKES! YAY!). She has also had an authoritarian stance on a number of issues abroad, which goes against the Constitution and our forefathers' wishes, which would set us back in foreign opinion of America.

Thirdly and lastly, her domestic policies are shot. She has stated that she wants to make illegal immigrants legal and give them citizenship. What she fails to realize is that this will cost us around 40 billion a year, at least, and will only set us back on our now 9 TRILLION dollar deficit. What we need right now is a candidate who will reduce our spending, as opposed to increase, which she will do with this, as well as her health care plan, which she managed to not only make worse than Obama's, but probably cost more.

So in answer to your question, no, I hardly think she will be effective.

Hillary Clinton has no real experience, and the last thing that she did on her own was get into law school. Keep in mind that she still failed her bar test, multiple times.

Everything since then she has gotten for being Mrs. BIll Clinton. She has no real qualifications. She has never succeeded at doing anything in the foreign or domestic spectrums. She is a sick commie, and an elitist that would be fine with exterminating people if it got her ahead.

She also has no respect for other people. While first lady, she demanded that the military guards wear civilian clothes to look less hostile. Taking away a soldiers uniform is one of the most demaning things that one can do to a soldier. Also, all of the pages, clerks, and workers in Washington that have ever had to deal with her say that she treated them like dirt, but her like-minded fellow senators were treated like Gods.

She also is a hypocrit. She claims to be a strong-willed feminest, yet she stayed with a man who cheated on her. Why? they arent a married couple, they are a partnership of politicians using each other.

That and she is one of the most corrupt politicians in the US. If you want me to start listing, email me.

She is so secretive that she makes the Bush adminstration look like they gave over every document that they have ever possessed.

I will do everything within my power to prevent her from becoming president. The Women of this country deserve a better representative then her.
