Hillary won't be the first Woman Head of State, for one, we had Prime Minister Indira Ghandi in India. By Geniusofdespair

People tend to forget their duties but remember their rights. - Indira Gandhi

It was a beautiful day in New York City, I was leaving the Palace Hotel, after having married the day before, when there stepping out of a limo was Indira Gandhi. I waved to her. She looked at me and waved back and smiled. She was gunned down soon after in 1984.

I was watching fathers and sons bonding on Father's Day yesterday - BUYING GUNS - at Bass Pro shop and it reminded me of Indira Gandhi's quote.

Thanks for reminding us about her. It is an enduring quote. In terms of Sec. Clinton's election to the Presidency, there are two observations that are independent of her that will help her.

Trump seems to have some early signs of dementia. In looking at his actions, the things he says, the immaturity - - - something is wrong. Only the people really close to him will know, his wife, children, and very close staff members. He is 70, so people who work with seniors need to begin to take a closer look at his past actions, and what he says and does, and see if any dots need connecting. If he is already showing signs, he will be 74 when his term is over, if elected.

The second observation is that the voters in the Republican party have left their leaders, who are now holding a bag filled with their old failed ideologies. They are leaders with NO people. Leaders who are pushing ideas and principles no one wants. The people in their party have left them and have embraced a completely different way thinking about ther future. A future that has jobs in it for them. Even if it is led by a crazy person. That is how desperate they are for change.

I think you are right about this job situation, Bank of America says it is laying off 8,000 people because people are using online banking and they don't need tellers and office people any more. Walmart is laying off 1,500 people, the State of Connecticut laying off 951 people, and even HSN is laying off 350 people. Trump tapped into a big hole.

Margaret Thatcher and Golda Meir also come to mind. Not sure how you missed them. They were strong leaders.
