Peggy, I don't think you should make assumptions about what different age groups of women will do politically.

how 'fortunate'?

As a man, I read this article with interest. I went to an all-boys school, but knew a lot of girls who attended - surprise - all girls schools. I think that the categories mentioned make sense, at least in my experience. I am a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton, and always have been. I see her as the kind of person who would make a very strong, wise and I hope successful president. Her gender should have nothing really to do with that (although it does, sadly). As far as being a 'Gamma' yes, I see that too. I would say I was a 'Gamma' guy - moving between the various groups easily for subtle reasons. It is a real variant, and although nobody is universally liked, gamma makes sense in Hillary's case. I hope she does run for president, and I hope the party does not get into a big argument because of it. Would the vice-president step aside gracefully? He has a right to run as well. We shall see.

I never heard the term "gamma girl" before, but now that I have a definition, I can see why you would be a gamma guy. A man with your attitude would be coming from a position of self-confidence to be highly appealing to women and appropriately masculine to men, and you clearly are an intelligent, thoughtful man, open to others and new ideas, and therefore likely to have great social skills.

Bet you are very successful in life in many ways. Wish there were more single gamma guys in my area.

What a sad comment on your sexist view of the world. Are you so threatened by an accomplished woman that you must refer to her by her husband's name? Regardless of your opinion of the Libyan embassy, your need to disempower her by “fitting her” into a smaller category as the wife of some man really only reveals your own issues.

Right on, reading2009. But what would you expect from someone with Emperor Reagan as their avatar? That likeness of him reminds me of those portraits of dictators that they carry in other countries.

funny, you'd be one of the boys in high school trying to take down the smart girls who actually achieve things. Scrawling nasty things on their locker, knocking their books out of their hands, and calling them names as they walked by.

how do i know that?

by the way you try to demean her by calling her "Mrs Bill Clinton."

she has her own name and title, you know - it's "Madame Secretary."

It's not just women who admire her....I'm a guy and I am certain Hillary Clinton would have mopped the floor with the post Bush Republicans in 2008. It's a tragedy we wound up with Obama.

The woman possesses the inside knowledge of life as president and knows where the bodies are buried.
It was a missed opportunity bar none.

Maybe the loss will add another layer to her savvy. She more than likely learned not to run again!

I've always liked Hillary. I think she was probably a nerd in High School--and that's okay.

If honest with yourself, Dr. Drexler, you might detect noticeable differences here in the peripheral vision of those in apparent agreement with your gamma-women concept, and the thoughtfulness of those instead concerned with 'logical' reasons to choose OUR country's leaders.

My "noticeable differences" and your "mutually exclusive" is a false equivalency, and a weak stretch at best to put words in another's mouth.
But since you for some reason chose that label "mutually exclusive" yourself, I'm guessing the part of my comment distressing you is because it's something you also noticed. Even now, I find I'm a bit pressed to find any 'pro-gamma comments' that don't also ONLY discuss Hillary in terms of attributes (strong, confident, intelligent, etc.) instead of discussing her voting record as a Senator, her personal opinions concerning national policies while First Lady - or things she said and ran on as a candidate in 2008. Democrats believing time will make everyone just forget her years of status quo neoCONservatism, anymore than GWB's, will be as mistaken as republicans promoting Jeb Bush in 2016.

I say that Hillary has been an excellent secretary of state and she served at the pleasure of the President. Could we all let her have a couple of years off and then let her know the PEOPLE would like her to serve as Commander in Chief, President and leader of the executive branch? We need her, we deserve someone like her and I hope we have her as the next president elect come November 2016.
There are many other excellent women that could do the job as well but to find one with 8 years as wife to President Clinton, as a veteran campaigner and steeped in the ways of the congress as well as having been a secretary of state- where do you go to find a woman like that?

I agree Hillary Clinton had huge advantages as a presidential candidate in 2008, more than any candidate in history,

1. Universal name recognition after nearly two decades in the national spotlight

2. large tax-supported staffs to support/promote her and her work for over 16 years


3. well-established, powerful Clinton political machine reaching every state and precinct nationwide

4. hand-picked, experienced "dream team" of campaign staff and advisors, with large numbers of women,

5. huge war chest of support, including unspent millions from her last Senate campaign not counted against contribution limitations for 2008

6. early media drumbeat of inevitability

7. huge personal fortune to fuel the campaign, including funds raised by Bill Clinton in "speaking fees" from corporations and international interests prohibited from direct campaign contributions http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2008/05/08/36441/clintons-campaign-loans-raise.html

8. huge past experience in national presidential campaigning

9. unprecedented resource of popular former president campaigning for her full-time in a primary

With all of these advantages, Hillary could not LEAD a successful campaign against a virtually unknown candidate new to national presidential politics. It ended with internecene warfare among staff and advisors, deeep debt, and defeat.

Democratic progressive donors have spent hundreds of milions supporting Hillary Clinton;s campaigns. Will billion be sufficent to elect a candidate who cannot lead? Would that be wise?

Mittsey had billions behind him and none of the experience cited in 1-9. And yet 47% of the voters voted for him. Hillary is much better qualified to lead.

Hillary Clinton is an exceptionally fine Secretary of State.

She is not, however, the "cool kid."

Her recent comment about legalization of marijuana being about reducing drug cartel issues is a case in point.

She is so astonishingly out of touch, so long a wife of a Governor, President, Senator and SecState, that she has no concept of the abuses of power by a tyrannical police state and its affects on Americans.

Distinctly not the "cool kid."
08:23 PM on 12/01/2012
As anyone who has known her for a considerable amount of time would tell you, Hillary hasn't changed. It's people's perception of Hillary that have changed.

I think that Hillary is a level headed, super smart and hard working woman. She has a strong sense of duty and a need to serve. Hillary is who the country needs and I hope that come 2016 she's our next president.

I went to my precinct caucus and could have supported Hillary, or President Obama, or Bill Richardson. Yes, I did end up going with President Obama and I don't regret it. Having just watched the Republican Party go at each others' throats during the 2012 primary season should remind you that the political arena in the USA isn't for sissies. And Hillary is certainly not a sisssy. Please remember that the original oppo research that considered whether Barack Obama was vulnerable on the place of birth issue was developed by the Clinton campaign.

We are lucky to have Hillary as a possible candidate in 2016. I know I am looking forward to supporting her, should she choose to run. I hope 2008 Clinton supporters can get over any residual bitterness so that no potential supporters are inadvertent driven away by it..

Who's bitter. I said I find it amusing that the Clintons got portrayed as every kind of bad back then and now a lot of those same people sing a different tune.
12:16 AM on 12/03/2012
It's not bitterness. It's disappointment in seeing the better qualified and more experienced candidate been shoved aside for a neophyte.
07:39 PM on 12/01/2012
I still don't understand what you believe she has done that was good
Her big policy innitiative in the 90's failed, and was not even considered when the democratic party took up healthcare again, instead they literally went with the opposition's Bob Dole plan

Her term as secratary of state consisted of getting caught in the wikileaks scandals and having half of her corrupt puppet dictators in the muslim world being overthrown in the "arab spring"
No major peace deals were brokered in Hillary's state department, no climate change agreements, no nothing. Just damage control from the blowback she goes around creating
