希拉里的总统抱负: 美迟早会拥有女总统
[ 2006-09-01 14:53 ]

尽管希拉里·克林顿一再声明,她目前只把全部精力放在11月份的议员选举上,但种种迹象表明这位前第一夫人正朝着更高的目标奋进。本周四,在参观“美国女性名人堂”未来的新家之前,希拉里表示,她希望美国在未来能出现一位女总统,而这只是时间早晚问题。民意调查显示,希拉里虽然在民众中有着相当的号召力,但仍有部分支持者认为她竞选2008总统还为时过早。

 

 

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, standing outside an abandoned knitting mill that will become the new home of the National Women's Hall of Fame , said Thursday she hopes America is ready for its first woman president. 

"It just depends on when and if that happens," the former first lady told ABC's "Nightline." "Stay tuned."

Clinton continued to duck questions about whether she will run for the White House in 2008, saying yet again she is completely focused on her re-election this year.

But Clinton said that when it comes to a woman holding what she called "the toughest job in the world, some day it will happen."

Recent polls have shown Clinton far ahead of her rivals in the New York race, and with a distinct advantage among female voters.

A poll released last week by Quinnipiac University's Polling Institute found the job approval rating for the state's junior senator at 58 percent among male voters and 63 percent among women.

But even some women who support Clinton's re-election this year aren't certain she should run for the White House in 2008, in large part because she is a woman.

Valerie Brechko, an elementary school teacher from Penn Yan, said Wednesday during a Clinton campaign stop that while she is a strong Clinton supporter, she doesn't want her to run in 2008 because she can't win.

"I don't feel that our country is willing or ready to vote a woman into that office," Brechko said. "I hate to say it. I'm definitely a women's libber.But they're just not ready."

Clinton faces a Sept. 12 primary against anti- Iraq war activist Jonathan Tasini. Former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer and Reagan-era Pentagon official Kathleen Troia "KT" McFarland are vying for the Republican Senate nomination.
