You want a woman president because it would be symbolic? A woman president would REPRESENT A CHANGE in our current political system but will Hillary actually change anything?

IF you or someone you care about is going to vote for Hillary Clinton feel free to ask them why. Ask them if they would be satisfied with a symbol instead of the real deal:

Hillary Clinton is a powerful, wise, beautiful woman but she is party to beliefs and actions that do not coincide with my values and NEEDS.

Edwards: Give The Power Back To The People

I do not view John Edwards' response as a "personal attack" on Hillary Clinton. Why are the people in the audience booing?

Without attacking the audience I can only assume that they are Hillary Clinton supporters who veiw anything in the way of a clear DISTINCTION between her and the other candidates as an attack.

Please discuss!
