Palin on Hillary: I’d like to see more women run for higher office

posted at 6:41 pm on March 24, 2014 by Allahpundit

Via Breitbart, which occupies the top spot on Drudge as I write this. Reminds me a bit of 2008, when Palin was complimentary of Hillary on more than one occasion. The most famous was the day she was named as McCain’s VP and made her debut in Dayton:

I think as well today of two other women who came before me in national elections. I can’t begin this great effort without honoring the achievements of Geraldine Ferraro in 1984, and, of course, Sen. Hillary Clinton, who showed such determination and grace in her presidential campaign.

It was rightly noted in Denver this week that Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America. But it turns out the women of America aren’t finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all.

You can, if you like, dismiss that as a bid to draw Hillary voters who were disgruntled by the loss to Obama in the primaries, but Palin said something similar after the election when she had nothing to gain from it. She also defended Hillary’s toughness at a forum in March of that year, months before she landed on the ticket. Nothing unusual about the first true woman contender for the presidency getting respect from other national pols, especially female ones. What makes the clip below a little surprising — assuming “Extra” didn’t bowdlerize what she said for its teaser — is that Palin’s take on Hillary naturally soured after Benghazi. Six months ago:

In an interview with Fox News anchor Shannon Bream, Palin was asked by a Twitter user named “Michael” what she thought of “Hillary Clinton, and Hillary’s role in Benghazi.” Bream then asked Palin if she believed if it would have an impact in 2016 should Clinton pursue the presidency.

Palin said “if it doesn’t have an impact on the 2016 presidential election if she is a candidate,” then she would have “disappointment” in the country’s electorate.

Palin said that Clinton should “never be considered as Commander-in-Chief ” because she helped “throw away 200 years of military ethos” and left “our men behind to be murdered in Benghazi.” Clinton had initially claimed last year that the four Americans who were killed by terrorists died because of a YouTube parody video of Muhammad.

Maybe she mentioned that and “Extra” snipped it or maybe this is a matter of strategic self-interest: If you’re a woman whose own supporters want you to run for president, touting the need for more women candidates at the upper echelon is exactly what you should say. There’ll be plenty of time to tear Hillary down later.

Sarah Palin, gender warrior.

America’s conservative women are sure a long way from the conservatism of Maggie Thatcher, who would’ve considered it an insult to be questioned about whether she cared for a candidate’s gender.

Hey, Sarah, real feminists don’t need to be so self-consciously pro-woman.

Pincher Martin on March 24, 2014 at 6:48 PM

If Palin should decide that she’d like to be one of those women running for higher office again, I would certainly vote for her. She would be a gigantic improvement over the people in DC now. But then again, a pack of dogs would be a gigantic improvement over the people in DC now.

Also, I didn’t hear the name “Hillary” come from Palin’s mouth in this clip, just a general “more women should run” for high offices.

Just my take.

Israel To Shutter ALL Embassies And Consulate Offices Worldwide

“Unprecedented! According to the Jerusalem Post ALL Israeli Embassies and consulate offices will be shuttered for the first time in the state’s history!

Foreign Ministry goes on strike, all Israel’s embassies and consulates abroad to close

The workers are striking for better pay, as well as compensation for spouses of diplomats forced to forfeit careers in order to join their husbands or wives during their stints abroad.

The Finance Ministry lashed out against the Foreign Ministry workers union, accusing it of “holding the citizens of Israel hostage and harming the vital interests of the state.”

Were public sector unions invented to destroy governments?”

Sarah Palin is barely competent enough to offer her unscripted political opinions on camera, as she struggles to speak in proper, complete sentences. And people think she is competent enough to run a presidential campaign? What a joke.

We conservatives can and should do much better than her. I would take Cruz any day over Palin. At least he doesn’t run from challenging, live tv interview situations.

Palin often hurts conservatives more than she helps, and her “cutesy” routine grates on the nerves.

First Palin endorses McCain for reelection, and now she is encouraging Hillary to run, because of “girl power” or something? Thanks for nothing, Palin. And I enthusiastically supporter her in 2008. Now I wish she would stay off camera, but apparently she loves the attention too much.

Many of you make excuses for Palin no matter what stupid thing she does. Is that helpful?

You hate hearing any criticism of her.

No, we think it’s absurd to fly off the handle over something like this, and we get annoyed at seeing people like you take opportunities as petty as this to start trashing Palin all over again.

Palin said she’d like to see more women run for higher office. No one who’s been following Palin should be shocked by this. She did not endorse Hillary Clinton for President.

Please, don’t just attack someone because they are critical of Palin, especially when Palin is encouraging Hillary to run and citing her gender as an asset. If Romney had said this, many here would be apoplectic.

Friends, help me out- do bluegills have extraordinary hearing, or are they clairvoyant?

I watched the clip, & didn’t even hear Hillary’s name from Palin. Bluegill heard Palin “encouraging her to run.”

(or,perhaps fishy is just deranged?)

Hehe.

Almost two hours and this thread hasn’t broken 100…I would have taken the over on that bet.
