Kate Michelman: John Edwards, Not Hillary, Would Be First Female President

Okay...

Toni Morrison famously dubbed President Clinton America's "first black president." With that barrier broken, the comments of a prominent feminist are provoking debate about who may lay a similar claim to the title of America's first woman president.

The candidate being touted as a torchbearer for women is not Senator Clinton, but one of her former colleagues, John Edwards....

"I've gotten to know a lot of political leaders over the years that I've been an advocate for women's rights. I know the difference between those who advocate as a political position and those who understand the reality of women's lives."

Compared to Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Edwards is short an X' chromosome, but listening to Ms. Michelman, that is easy to forget.

Hell, listening to John Edwards, that's easy to forget.

Do I have to go to rehab now?

"As a lawyer, as a senator, as a husband, as a father of two daughters, he understands the reality of women's lives. He understands the centrality of women's lives and experience to the health and well-being of society as a whole. He understands that on an extremely personal level," she said.

In related news, Ann Coulter just wrote to say, "Hey, I was just trying to help John Edwards firm up his base."

Okay, one can understand the fix Edwards is in: Let's see, first woman president, first black president, or... first Shaun Cassidy President.

I mean, I liked his work in the Hardy Boys, and sure, he's gone on to be a producer of well-liked if ratings-poor female-skewing TV science-fiction shows, but is that enough to recommend him as commander in chief?

Apparently it's not. So his supporters think it's best to emasculate him to make him more appealling to women voters.

Bill Clinton: I feel your pain.

John Edwards: I feel your menstrual pain.

Hillary! thought she had to vote for the war to prove she could match her possible rivals in terms of balls.

If only she had known.
