It’s sad to see some people’s disappointment.
Carol Palmore, 59, former Kentucky labor secretary, said she’ll support Obama in the fall, overcoming aching disappointment she and many other women feel. “Never in our lifetime will we have another chance to have a woman president,” she said.
But it ain’t necessarily true. There is a very good chance that John McCain or Barack Obama, or both, will pick a woman as a running mate. And, allowing for factors such as age, a sitting vice-president is very likely to become a candidate for the presidency down the road. I think one of the problems for some grieving Clinton supporters is that they don’t recognize that this isn’t a once in a lifetime event. One thing that Clinton accomplished was she got people used to the idea of a woman as president.
