Senator Hillary Clinton on her victory night in Ohio, the music blares, the /// falls with signs waving all around her, best-selling author Deborah Tannen who has made an living analyzing how people talk, calls it "the Hillary Factor".

 

She`s Hillary, everybody else is senator this or governer that. Now, it`s true that her campaign does refer to her salary, but part of that is because it`s gonna happen anyway so you might as well adopt it. But it`s this double bind, it`s makes her likable, makes people feel close to her, but it makes them see her less as a commander in chief.

 

Tennen, a George Town University linguistic professor, whose best selling books include "You Just Don`t Understand", says "the Hillary Factor" is not just about senator Clinton.

 

Any woman in a position of authority or leadship has to choose, if she`s a good woman, than she`s not a good leader; if she`s a good leader, she`s not a good woman. And it`s not that people look at her and say, you know, you`re a prerry good leader, but you are not, you don`t think about it that way, you just don`t like her.

 

This is not last on the Canada, when the supporter recently asked her how to help her win undecided voters, Clinton said "just knock at the door and say, you know she`s really nice, or you can say in another way, she`s not as bad as you think." Tennen says that when a female politician chose a softer side whether it`s Clinton at a New Hampshire coffee shop where her eyes teared up, or thinking senator Barack Obama at the February youtube debate, they do so at their own ///.

 

"No matter what happens in this contest, and I am honored, I am honored to be here with Barack Obama, I am absolutely honored."

 

Most of the women that I talked to reacted as I did, this was very gracious, it was so universally in the press interpreted as she`s surrendering, she`s waving the white flag, just say that 'I`m honored to be here with him' means he`s higher than me, and I`m lower than he is.

 

Tennan says this is part of the reason Clinton can not say with a mistake when she voted to authorize the Iraq war.

 

I think for her to apologize would be far more face threating risky than for a man to because he starts with the assumption that he`s strong.

 

It was more than 20 years ago, when Congress woman Patt Schroeder launched in presidential beat that ended in tears.

 

"I could not figure out how to run, and not be separated for ///, it must be a way but I haven`t figured it out yet."

Tennen says the Clinton Run shows the americans are still trying to figure things out.

 

"She is really the first woman who has been a viable candidate, I think that`s someting that`s gonna leave some impression on young women, regardless of whether she wins or loses this, and she`s making it easier for the next woman who comes around, that`s, that`s part of being a pioneer."

 

On Tuesday, voters go to the polls in Pennsylvania where Clinton has a lead although she twills Obama nationally, and both in number of delegates won and the popular vote.
