|Okay remember, be subtle.|
In his speech Tuesday commemorating the designation of a new national monument honoring women's equality, President Barack Obama said he looked forward to the day when future visitors to the Washington, D.C., site would be "astonished" that at one point in time, a woman had never been president.
“I want young girls and boys to come here 10, 20, 100 years from now to know that women fought for equality, it was not just given to them. I want them to come here and be astonished there was ever a time when women could not vote," Obama said during his remarks at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument, which served as the headquarters of the National Woman's Party since 1929.
"I want them to be astonished that there was ever a time when women earned less than men for doing the same work." "I want them to be astonished that there was ever a time when women were vastly outnumbered in the boardroom or in Congress, that there was ever a time when a woman had never sat in the Oval Office," he remarked.
Hold on. The President wants young girls and boys who some to the monument in 10 or 20 years to be astonished that there was ever a time when a woman had never sat in the Oval Office?
Because the only way for that to seem unremarkable is if we were to actually elect a female president in the very near future, and the only woman poised to meet that criteria is Hillary Clinton.
And this follows closely on the heels of this comment from Joe Biden:
"This country’s ready for a woman," Biden said. "There’s no problem. We’re gonna be able to elect a woman in this country. I would like to see a woman elected.”
Now the Vice President also claimed that neither he nor the President were going to endorse any candidates, but I guess that doesn't mean they're not going to drop hints like crazy up until the nomination now does it?
