Another slap in the face for Clinton

A former US Attorney under the Clintons and now prominent Governor, Janet Napolitano has decided to endorse Sen. Barack Obama.

What this means: Well a lot of things. First off, this is possible the most prominent female executive in the country, since she is the former Chair of the National Governor’s Association. Napolitano noted the changed and unification that Obama was capable of in her decision. This is also important because of a female executive not feeling beholden or trapped into endorsing Hillary Clinton. Napolitano was able to rationally say that the unification and new outlook that Barack Obama is what this country needs, not another year added onto the Dynasty decades of the Bush family and the Clinton family.

It’s also important because Napolitano could be a serious contender as a Vice-President should Barack Obama win the nomination. Napolitano would be able to deliver Arizona, a state often won by Republicans, and could give the appeal of a female executive breaking into the White House.

Apart from the slap in the face endorsement from Kerry, this is the most important endorsement in this election. Napolitano by endorsing him gave him serious credibility and allowed women to escape from the trap of having to vote for Clinton because she is the female candidate.

    I am very peased to hear this. Being a 58 year old woman, I am highly insulted and all other woman should be too, how the gender card is being played since things started going bad for Hillary pre the NH primaries. The feminists say we should vote for her because she is a woman and this all shows how we have been treated through out history. For those who voted for Hillary because they felt “sorry” for her also demeans the intelligence of woman. Do we vote on emotion or knowledge?

    Peace!

    This is the first time I’ve read anything about this endorsement, thanks!

    I agree that this is a huge move for all the issues you point out, as well as the fact that Napolitano is also the first governor to be elected on the ‘clean elections’ system uesd throughout Arizona and several other states. This is a great asset for Obama to hold against Clinton’s huge backing by corporate interests.

    I hope you are right. I’ve said all along that I have no problem with a woman being president. But I would have a problem with THIS woman being president.
