I’ve always thought way too many voters make their choices on team mentality.
When George W. Bush ran against John Kerry, many people cited the “beer test” for where their vote would go. Who would be more fun to have a beer with? That’s who you would vote for.
Almost as bad, is this weird “Hillary’s a woman, she knows what it’s like to be me!” thing for a lot of women, as Hillary has 2/3 of all democratic females polling her way. Yes, it would be great to have a woman president, but shouldn’t women weigh this fact a little differently? Shouldn’t you at least take into consideration how she would be as president? Because if she does a crappy job, men everywhere will unite to point out what’s between her legs.
