• Hillary: I’m an ‘Outsider Candidate’ Because I’m a Woman

    Hillary Clinton said she should is an “outsider” presidential candidate because of her gender, despite her tenure as secretary of state, First Lady and New York senator.

    “In politics this year, it looks like everyone wants an outsider,” host John Dickerson noted on CBS’ Face the Nation Sunday morning. “Now that puts you in a fix.”

    Clinton disagreed.

    “I could not imagine anyone being more of an outsider than the first woman president. Really, let’s think about that.” Clinton said.

    “All these mothers and fathers bring me the place mats with all the presidents and they bring their daughters, and they say, ‘My daughter has a question for you.’ And the daughter says, ‘How come there are no girls on this place mat?’ I agree that is — that’s a pretty big unconventional choice.”

    Dickerson pressed her on the question — as the top three Republican presidential candidates have not served in a political office.

    “But you know what I’m asking,” he said.

    “I know you’re asking do we want people who have never been elected to anything, who have no political experience, who never made any hard choices in the public arena,” Clinton replied. “Well, voters are going to have to decide that,”

    Dickerson also asked Clinton to use three words to describe herself during the segment.

    “Just three? I can’t possibly do that,” Clinton said laughing. “I mean look, I am a real person.”

    Clinton, who hasn’t driven a car since 1996, has been running in Beltway circles for 30 years and according to voters is out of touch and dishonest.

    Over half of Americans think the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lacks honesty and trustworthiness, according to a recent poll says Quinnipiac University sampling.  Sixty-one percent of all voters believe Clinton has neither of those attributes. Her honesty numbers are under water with voters because of her deletion of more than 30,000 emails from the server and suspicious donations to the Clinton Foundation.

    She’s also rapidly losing female voters on her side of the aisle.
