Rosie O'Donnell's Would-Be Makeover For Price Is Right? "Gay It Up" | Main | Jon Lovitz Beats Crap Out Of Andy Dick Over Phil Hartmann Crack

Elizabeth Edwards On Hillary! Clinton: "She's a *Man,* Baby!"

This is the woman who was terribly concerned about Coulter's crack about her husband being gay, remember.

When I was a lawyer, I was the first female lawyer many people had ever seen. I had an obligation to my client to do the work right, but I thought constantly about my obligation to the women who came after me. If I didn't do a good job, they wouldn't get a chance to sit where I'm sitting. I think one of the things that make me so completely comfortable with this is that keeping that door open to women is actually more a policy of John's than Hillary's.

On the issues that are important to women, she has not ... well, healthcare, that's enormously important to women, all the polls say, and what she says now is, we're going to have a national conversation about healthcare. And then she describes some cost-saving things, which John also supports, but she acts like that's going to make healthcare affordable to everyone. And she knows it won't. She's not really talking about poverty, when the face of poverty is a woman's face, often a single mother. She gave that speech on abortion a few years ago [saying abortion should be "safe, legal and rare"].

Look, I'm sympathetic, because when I worked as a lawyer, I was the only woman in these rooms, too, and you want to reassure them you're as good as a man. And sometimes you feel you have to behave as a man and not talk about women's issues. I'm sympathetic -- she wants to be commander in chief. But she's just not as vocal a women's advocate as I want to see. John is.

...

The question is not so much how she campaigns -- that's theater. The question is, what does her campaign tell you about how she'll govern? And I'm not convinced she'd be as good an advocate for women. She needs a rationale greater for her campaign than I've heard. When she announced her candidacy she said, "I'm in it to win it." What is that? That's not a rationale. Same with Senator Obama -- I've yet to hear a rationale. John is extremely clear about what he can accomplish and why he's the one to do it.

Incidentally, this deranged hag admits to sockpuppeting on various blogs.

[Q.] ...people always said you were a Daily Kos diarist under another name.

I wasn't. But I have blogged using other screen names before. Before the Whole Foods guy got in trouble [the Wall Street Journal revealed last week that CEO John Mackey used pseudonyms to deride competitors online] I decided that that wasn't such a good idea.

Speaking of sockpuppets: Glenn Greenwald has been shrieking for months about claims that this or that Democrat isn't acting like a man, and this or that Republican is manly. (Classical Values recently mocked and baited him for this idee fixe.)

What will Greenwald have to say about Elizabeth Edwards implication that Hillary! isn't behaving as a woman?
