Hillary Girl-Talks With Amber and America

Actresses Amber Tamblyn and America Ferrera sat down to interview Hillary Clinton. I have to say, for all of Hillary's efforts at "humanizing" herself, this really made me like her. Amber asks Hillary about how she deals with personal criticism on the campaign trail. Check it out to see who she tells to "jump in the lake."

My vote is otherwise engaged, but I have to say, she seems like a perfect role model in this video. Even if you're not a Hillary fan, do you think she seems lovely and real in this conversation?

How about Castro? I hear he is pretty far to the Left.

I'm more in tune with Kucinch, actually. He's who I would vote for if he weren't too liberal for the Democrats. Clinton and Obama are both moderate conservatives on the world political spectrum. But maybe America is just too conservative for me altogether. You should find out where all the candidates stand. See who's standing next to where you stand. And vote for them.

Listen, I don't think I would ever have an abortion personally, but that isn't the point. The point I'm trying to make is, pro-choice isn't pro-abortion. It's pro- HAVING A CHOICE. The idea is that people will have morals and a conscience and make the right CHOICE. But when you take choices away from people you create panic, harsh circumstances, and back-alley abortions which not only result in dead "children" but dead mothers as well. You can hate abortion. That's fine. Don't have one. But don't you ever try to impose your beliefs on others and take away their options.

Though I feel I have arrived too late to this post for anyone to actually read this........... "I'm not saying I would vote for Hillary (I won't be voting for Obama, either. I'm much farther left than either of them.) " Who are you voting for, Stalin?

I have to interject one thing. Foster care and adoption are two totally different things. If the mother gave the child up after birth then they would NOT GO INTO FOSTER CARE!!! Foster care is for babies of mothers who did not give up their rights and are held there until the family can take them back, or the mother and families rights are either taken away or voluntarily given up. They are put in foster care for a variety of different reasons, from being homeless to being abused. Sorry but there is a HUGE difference between the two and I am so tired of that being an excuse for having abortions.

Cadet, I'm appalled at your opinion.It's obvious to me that there is a lot of hurt within yourself that you need to work out, and I feel sorry for you. It doesn't matter on which bias the site is, but that the listed methods of abortion are practiced, and apparently upheld by people who think much like you. True, not every foster child has a Disney story ending, and I know personally as well, how horrible the state can be concerning foster homes. I would be ecstatic if every child in a home to be given to a loving family, but even if it doesn't happen, at least they have a fighting chance to experience life. What you're talking about when you say "Maybe that guy who stole your car and killed your daughter should have been aborted" is such a ridiculous theory, I hardly know what to say. Should we all look at childrens'(or, as you like, a "fetus") faces and say, "I don't quite like the way he looks. Maybe he'll wind up as a bad person. Better abort him before he does something horrible"? You're right Cadet, you have made quite a solid point. Bravo. Think what you like on abortion, but no matter if you say "Fetus" or "Child", it's still a person (because when sperm hits the egg, it's DNA, and DNA constitutes a person)that dies helplessly, and it's that person who will never even experience having rights, or ever have a choice of what happens to their body. They'll never have the priviledges you had. It's ironic that you would say "it's MY body", and "So you're going to take away my rights because of what someone else did against my wishes and without my control or consent?", as that's what happens to the child, born or unborn, because of the person who chooses to abort. Anyway, I'm just going to leave it at that and not argue about it anymore. These debates rarely go anywhere, and people get very riled up about it.

I love your completely one-sided propaganda site, JovianSkies! Personally, I think abortion is fantastic! Babies don't always go to loving homes. The foster care system creates new maladjusted delinquents every day. (Not to say that every foster child is a problem-child, just to say that the system is unbalanced and I've seen first hand what a horrible foster-care situation can create on multiple separate occasions.) Maybe that guy who stole your car and killed your daughter should've been aborted. And if I'm raped who are you to make me have the baby? What if I don't want to be pregnant. It isn't MY fault. This is MY body we're talking about. My weight. My health. My ripped vaginal tissue, thank you very much. So you're going to take away my rights because of what someone else did against my wishes and without my control or consent? But I could talk about this issue for hours. Please understand that pro-choice politicians are not exactly supporting the idea of killing a "child" but of giving people, living, breathing, educated people who have established friends and family members on this earth, the ability to choose what they wish to do in their situation and NOT be told what they can and cannot do. (Fascists...) You wouldn't want someone to tell you that you had to do something with your body because of their governmental laws, would you? I don't tell you what God to worship, what to eat, where to work, what to wear. So don't tell me what my options are. That's all that I ask. But I would like you to find loving adoptive homes for ever aborted fetus. That would prove rather interesting.

Hillary DID steal my sweater, and gossiped about me when I told other people about it! On a more serious note, I could not, in any way, support anyone who approves of abortion, no matter what their reasoning may be. Anyone who condones, or approbates abortion surely doesn't know the entirety of the gruesome methods required to end an innocent child's life (at any time of the pregnancy). If that's so, they should go to the link below, and see how they feel about it afterwords. There's no reason why a mother who doesn't want her baby can't give him/her to adoption. Disgusting.

It's got to be hard for her to be a woman in the boys club of the presidential political spectrum. Especially the first woman to come this far and be taken seriously! I couldn't imagine what that must be like for her. If she acts even the slightest bit emotional, her hormones are infringing upon her ability to lead the people of this country. By that standard, everyone's mother must have been unable to raise them because their hormones got in the way! I'm not saying I would vote for Hillary (I won't be voting for Obama, either. I'm much farther left than either of them.) But I will acknowledge how hard this must be for her. I'd also like to point out that she is a great role model for young women. She's able to stand on her own and has made her own accomplishments. She was never the typical first lady with an uber-conservative wardrobe and a tiny cause to chit chat over (Nancy Reagan and her war on drugs, Laura Bush and her war on literacy, etc.) Hillary wants to tackle the big issues. She's not that mousy woman. And what a great message it is for women who want to be heard, and women with big voices and big ideas, that they can express that and still be women. And maybe grow up to be president someday, too. Regardless of her politics, I respect her for that.

Jillness, I tried that tactic the other day, and she told me to grow some chops and broaden my shoulders or something assinine like that. I don't think kaysnowboarder can get through a comment without adding polarizing and insulting sentiment to it. Although now that I think about it, it would be a great campaign strategy to have really annoying and patronizing people go around stumping for your opposition.

"How a candidate deals with those that disagree with him/her tells a lot to me about how they are going to deal with the allies and enemies of our nation." I AGREE 100%!!! So do I. In this case I think either Hillary or Obama will be a change. I hope it is Hillary but I am cool with Obama. It's time for change!
Jillness Jillness 9 years Here is a link that compares the economic stimulus packages of the candidates (all of them). I think that this matters more than what reproduction equipment the candidates are working with.

You forgot to add that we are all sexist. Because that is a popular one for Hilary lovers to call people who dislike her and/or her policies. I mean it could not be at all that we are educated on the woman and don't agree with her and her policies. Nope, that is not it at all.
Jillness Jillness 9 years
Kays, I would respect your opinion so much more if you didn't insult other board members. Saying things like "Obama Kool-Aid" and suggesting that we don't have good relationships with our mothers is so out of line. Insulting other users isn't a good way to make a case for your candidate, either. When you start making a point by insulting our relationships with our mothers or suggesting that we have never been in a position of power, well it only discredits yourself. The "Obama Kool-Aid" line that you use suggests that you are afraid of the idea that people actually have real and substantial reasons for chosing another candidate. Just because you don't agree, it doesn't mean the rest of the world is high. Very disrespectful.
Kaysnowboarder Kaysnowboarder 9 years
Geez, it is amazing how many on this site are really high on Obama Kool-aid so much so that you can not think pragmatically - so enjoy the high until super-Tuesday. It is amazing how angry you are at Hillary - what has she done to deserve it? I hope you all have good relationships with your moms. You should try and read Gloria Steinem's peice in the New York Times. Maybe, many of you young women have not been in a position of power with only men sitting at the table with you. Well - it does take some toughness. Here is the link to the piece in the New York Times.

"How a candidate deals with those that disagree with him/her tells a lot to me about how they are going to deal with the allies and enemies of our nation." I AGREE 100%!!! I have thought a long time about Iran, and I could really see Obama as someone who could meet with our "problem leaders" and convince them to work with the US and UN. I think a respectable and intellegent leader could really help the US.

I think that in comfortable environments Hillary can come off as approachable and thoughtful, maybe even likeable. But when she gets in the hot seat, she takes on this arrogant, bossy, and repulsive tone. When you go to her website and look up her stance on the issues, even in the phrasing and tone of the writing there is a kind of cockiness. I think it is very similar to GWB's tone. I think that for the future of this country, we need to elect someone that is going to be diplomatic and that can start to undo the damage that GWB did with his arrogant cowboy attitude. People see us as the bully of the world, and someone that knows how to be humble might help to change those views. How a candidate deals with those that disagree with him/her tells a lot to me about how they are going to deal with the allies and enemies of our nation. If you can disagree with someone and at the same time show respect, you are more likely to get them to agree with you.

Hillary supporters: are you not at all worried about the fact that she's been(and her husband, they are running as a 2 for the price of 1, so it's impossible to not include him) lying in this campaign? Really? I would prefer a sweater stealing president to someone who sees the truth as a relative according to gain. Also, you must have no opinion of Bush then, unless you've met him personally.

Jillness, you can add me to your quote list... Now that Giuliani is out, I will vote for any candidate, Republican or Dem, other than Hilary Clinton. I have voted Dem in all prior elections.

"It's really frustrating to me when people say they "can't stand" Hilary. Why? Do you know her personally? Did she gossip about you behind your back? Did she borrow your sweater and never return it? WHY? Why can't you stand her?" Do you really need to know someone on a personal basis to know you can't stand them? I would say that seeing someone in a public arena over and over is enough for people to base an opinion on. Not being able to stand someone is kind of a gut level reaction that doesn't really require them personally doing something to you (like stealing your favorite sweater)! I know plenty of people who can't stand Bill O'Reilly (myself included), and I've never met him. Many people don't like her. I'm sure there are plenty of people on this site (and in the general public) who would be more than willing to expound on the reasons.

You know Jillness I used to think that Clinton had a better chance of beating a Republican Candidate, but I am starting to think otherwise. Heck even me, a pretty die hard conservative has a soft spot for Obama.
Jillness Jillness 9 years
There is a article about Obama raising 32 Million dollars in January on CNN. Some comments that other left on there reflect my thought that Obama can unite a MAJORITY where the Clinton legacy can't : "I have nevr given to a political campaign, but agreed not to spend any money on entertainment and dinners to donate to Obama. If the Clinton(s) are the nominee, I will have to go with McCain." "Never have contributed $ before but this is the year. The risks of Clinton in the White House are just too much" "I'm a registered Republican. And I'm sending money to Obama's campaign AND plan on voting for him." "I am ready to donate because I do not want to take the risk again by putting Clinton's back in office." "I for one have not met a person in Dallas where I live that is NOT supporting Obama. I think this means a lot knowing that Texas is generall a "red state"."
