Even After Election It Will Keep Churning
I think it is safe to say that we all want this election to be over. It’s way too long and it seems to get more nasty on a daily basis. We Americans were birthed in volatile campaigns so this is not a new phenomena. It is only new for a generation. If you study the Jefferson campaign, this looks tame. Besides, we would miss the real meaning of this campaign. We have two candidates who are representatives of our transitional period. During this transition, we must make changes to the status quo and this is what it looks like.
Trump was really not about becoming a President as he was to change the face of the Republican Party. He is doing that and so I would say that he is doing his job. Sometimes it has to get so outrageous to finally make a change. It took sound bite after sound bite to finally get to the worst sound bite to activate the grenade. If you hear the news today, he is talking about going it alone without the Republican backing. Fabulous stuff to watch and the Republican Party is changed forever.
Hillary’s job was to be the transition person from the male dominated leadership into the beginning of influential female leadership. As I have said before, she represents a strong female/male quality. I would call her more conservative than most democrats and certainly more hawkish than Obama. She can be socially progressive but underneath will be the conservative. She is a lightening rod for opinions but she can stand the heat. She has been trained to do this.
I have often thought what would happen if the roles were reversed and we had a Donna Trump who was married 3 times, hit on all the males she could and used vulgar language and a Harry Clinton, hard working, tenacious and secretive. Let’s pretend they are reading the same script but in different genders. Would we blow Donna Trump out of the water and support Harry Clinton, especially if he had experienced a wayward wife who chased pants when she was in the presidential office? What a skit this would make on SNL. Would this qualify as a double standard?
