New Hampshire Primaries

I haven't delved into politics on this site at all because, quite frankly, I've felt a bit burned by the state of everything in this realm. That being said, I don't understand why people would want to vote for Hillary Clinton. Now let me preface what I'm going to say, by stating that I loved Bill Clinton. I still do. Hillary is no Bill, though. For starters, she lacks his warmth and charisma. Too many swing voters' minds are made up on her, too. She also seems much more disingenuous than some of her opponents.

Yet, the AP and MSNBC are projecting her to be the winner at 10:35 ET with 66 percent of precincts reporting. The statistic the news organizations seem to be referencing the most is that women voters turned out in droves (57% to 43% men), and they voted overwhelmingly for Hillary. I don't understand this. Because they share similar genitalia, they're supposed to vote for her? That just seems short-sighted. I'm all for there being diverse candidates in Presidential politics, but I just fail to see how she's the best candidate.

Barack Obama is so inspiring and impressive. He evokes such confidence. His stances on the issues should appeal to men and women alike.

CNN just called it for Hillary, as well.
