Homework

Senator hillary Clinton on her victory night now in Ohio. The music players blares, the confetti falls with signs waving all around her. Best-Selling Author Deborah Tannen who has made a living and lives on how people talked calls it “ the Hillary Factor”. “ she’s Hillary and everybody else is…Senator ..that. Now, it’s true that her campaign does refer to her as Hillary, but part of that is because it’s going to happen anyway so you might as well adopt it, but it’s double bind it’s made so likeable. It makes people feel closed to her but it makes them see her less a commander in chief.

 

Tannen are George Town University linguistic professor whose best-selling books include You Just Don’t Understand. So the Hillary Factor is not just about Senator Clinton. “ Any women in the position of authority or leadership has to choose: if she’s a good woman, then 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 are good leader.’ But you don’t think of it that way. You just don’t like her.” This is not Senator Candidate. When a supporter recently asked her how to help her win under-sided voters, Clinton said:” just knock at her door and say:’ You know, she’s really nice and … Or you can say another way:  She’s not as bad as I think..’” Tannen says when a female politician chose a softer side, whether Clinton’s at the New Hampshire Coffee Shop where her eyes tear up or thanking Senator Barack Obama at the February You Tube Debate, they do so at their own peril. “ 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 to say that I am honored to be here with him means he’s higher than me and I am lower than he is.”

Tannen says this is part of the reasons Clinton can not say it was a mistake when she voted to authorize the Iraq War. “ I think for her to apologize will be far more face-threatening, riskier than for a man to because he starts with the assumption that he is strong. It was more than 20 years ago when a Congress woman Patt Schroeder launched a presidential bid that ended in tears. “ I could not figure out how to run, and not be separated from those I serve. There must be a way but I haven’t figure it out yet.

Tannen says the Clinton Run shows the Americans are still trying to figure things out. “She is really  the first woman who’s been a viable candidate. I think that’s something that's goanna to leave its impression on young women. Regardless of whether she wins with it, and she’s making it easier for the next woman who comes around. That’s part of being a pioneer.” On Tuesday, voters’ going to polls at Pennsylvania where Clinton has a lead although she trails over Obama nationally both in the numbers of Delegates won and the popular vote.
