    One of the smartest things she ever did.... icon_smile.gif

    From the AP:

    Last week, during a promotional press conference for The History Channel’s upcoming series “First Ladies in Their Own Words,” series’ host Ron Reagan shared clips of his interviews with all living former First Ladies of the United States. In a brief video clip with his mother Nancy Reagan, she offered her endorsement of Hillary Clinton as President saying, “The time for a woman to serve as our President has come – really, now is the time – and I think the idea of having a former First Lady as the leader of the free world is really quite a marvelous notion. I want Hillary to win. Even though I admire two of the current potential Republican nominees, I have no interest in seeing either of them lead this country.”

    “First Ladies in Their Own Words” is the brainchild of Presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and Ron Reagan, son of President Ronald Reagan. Broadcast in chronological order of their husbands’ terms in office, Goodwin and Reagan hope the series will show the importance of our First Ladies as a reflection of the culture of the nation during their years in the White House.

    Besides interviews about family life in the White House and the First Lady’s social importance in the nation, “First Ladies in Their Own Words” will focus on four particular issues and how each has evolved over the last 40 years. Those issues – Women’s Rights, Healthcare, Education and LGBT Rights – reveal a dynamic shift in what Americans think about what means to be “American.” As Pulitzer Prize-winner Doris Kearns Goodwin notes in the first episode, “The Founding Mothers of this country knew that women in Colonial America would never get to shape the politics of the country at that time, but they did know that had the more important job of shaping the men who shaped the country.”

    Ron Reagan was in his twenties when his father sat in the Oval Office and was clearly aware of what his mother’s job was as First Lady. “Hopefully, this program can show that no matter how divisive the nation was during the Presidency, the First Ladies of this nation knew their job was to soften the rhetoric by loving all Americans equally – just like a mother would.”

    Asked about his mother’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Reagan thought it showed how little America actually knew about the woman behind the Republican icon. “She wants people to know that the First Ladies are tight. They get together once a year to support each other. In fact, Hillary had no interest in running until both Laura and Barbara Bush cornered her at their get-together in May 2013 and talked her into at least thinking about it! So, in a sense, if Mrs. Clinton does run and win, you can blame the Bush family.”

    “First Ladies in Their Own Words” is not yet scheduled on The History Channel, but is expected to begin during the fall television season. Check local listings for dates and times

    Hmm, this is unexpected. I had always taken Nancy Reagan as being very right leaning. I'm not really sure how to interpret this interesting turn.

    Hillary and her husband are scum bags. Everyone knows that and the Dems are praying for another Obama to come along so they won't be obliged to support her.

    Really? Were she and her husband, St. Ronnie, senile wack jobs when they were in the White House? We now know he, at least, was already suffering from Alzheimer's, and it was covered up.

    I'm keeping an open mind when it comes to Hillary. I think she has the potential to be a really great president, and maybe even help unite the country a little bit. There is never going to be a perfect candidate or a perfect president. I like the historic element -- former First Lady, senator, Secretary of State. Her resume is unique to say the least

    Well, certainly a better resume than anyone else vying for the Presidency at the moment. And it would be great to finally have a female President.

    But just like with President Obama, it would enrage Republicans. Who would attempt to sabotage her, just as they have Obama.

    A President should only be a White male, in the Republican view. So even if Hillary gets elected, she'll face the same fierce Republican Congressional opposition that Obama has, just because of who she is.

    Maybe it would be better if Democrats nominated a White male this time, who could avoid this Republican Congressional enmity. Because Republicans will not allow any other kind of person to govern.

    Hillary, Bill and Chelsea's foundation has accepted large sums of money from the Sultan Of Brunei.

    Here's Hillary at a dinner thrown for her by the
    Sultan of Brunei who passed a law to execute gays by stoning:

    Here's Hillary with her senate campaign manager now Mayor of NY Deblasio and his wife Chirlane MacCray.

    Deblasio converted his wife from Lesbian to Hetereosexual:

    So exactly what gay rights does Hillary support?

    Maybe the Sultan knows;

    If that were the case republicans wouldn't support Palin who has actually gotten a lot of support.

    The proof is in who gets the Republican nomination for President. It won't be a Black, and it won't be a woman. In fact, no person of that description is currently considered a leading contender among Republicans.

    Here's the reality, which none of you will like much.
    Democratic votes are concentrated in cities in large states. This is why (other than gerrymandering) that we have a consistent disadvantage in the House. But it's the same reason we have an enormous advantage in the Electoral College. Because big states = lots of electors.

    For a Republican to win in 2016, he is going to need to sweep nearly all of the swing states. Now I know that the thought of President Cruz or President Walker gets your willies all hard and all, but the truth is that these are both deeply unlikeable characters. You can claim that Hillary is too, but even if I agreed (and I don't), all that would do is level the unlikability playing field. And then the two biggest issues will be: the economy (if it's seen to be improving) and the Electoral College.

    Immigration? Gay marriage/ These won't even be a blip on the screen in terms of what makes people vote.

    I'm glad. It seems to me many Republicans would scoff at a woman being a US president, and so unfortunately so would a fair number of democrats etc. Boring old Canada has only had a woman Prime Minister by default. icon_wink.gif The first thing I thought was that these Republican ladies thought that, too, and decided to get Hillary to go for it to deliberately sink the Democratic ship. However, this may also backfire, if that was the case. Which it isn't as it's hoax. icon_lol.gif

    Well it's about time for a woman to be president.

    I don't know why some of you guys are so obsessed with politics. They are all lawyers with a hidden agenda anyway. I don't think any of them really care or mean what they say. I think the people should have more power and influence. It's like once you place your vote you are unimportant again. As people we just don't have much influence on them once they are elected.
    It would be nice to finally have a woman as president but it's not exactly exciting to have Hillary as the main candidate.
    She's been around for so many years.

    Mrs. Reagan is 93 and very frail. Her son has always been a manipulative little closeted cunt. You can put two and two together and easily come up with 4.

    Mrs. Reagan has always been pretty moderate. They had gay friends long before any other first couple. I'd dare say that they have far more gay friends than the Obamas who I suspect don't have any.

    Nancy Reagan also regularly consulted astrologers. Maybe one of them tipped her off on Hillary. As for the show itself, add it to "Madam Secretary" as part of the subliminal ad campaign for HRC that has yet to be investigated by the FEC.

    Hopefully, some day, it will not be in context of the men whose coattails they rode in on...
