    If her being attractive hurt her, then why didn't fug Hilary win the nomination to begin with?

    Great points.

    I remember years ago reading a feminist essay about how women aren't taken seriously intellectually until they are no longer of a 'fuckable' age. I don't know if it applies here, but I've always felt it has validity in theory.

    Sarkozy has a female cabinet member, in a very important position, who is very good-looking, and when she came up in a discussion on another MB, all people could talk about is that she must have slept her way into her position. That mindset just sucks, but it seems to be a hard perception to combat.

    By the way, I thought Bertie Ahern, the Irish Prime Minister, was a woman until I looked it up. My bad, Bertie!

    No her idiotic responses, weird views, and snarky behavior hurt her.

    I'd still pay to see a Quayle/ Palin debate.

    I do think she's attractive but I also think she's dumb as a plank and sly like a fox.

    Yes, she is attractive, but her lack of knowledge is what did her in. She didn't even know that Africa is a continent. She does not need to be in office imo.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    ITA, her eyes always look like they're about to pop out of her head.

    It's the crazy that makes her eyes bug out. You can't keep the crazy in.

    Hillary was close to being the democratic nominee (by far, if Obama hadn't run) so I don't think that's a valid question.

    God that outfit...anyone ever see the movie Overboard with Kurt Russell & Goldie Hawn????? That was my first thought.

    She is, in abstract, a very pretty woman, but as Judge Judy says, beauty fades, stupid is forever. And there's another saying about ugly on the inside, but I can't recall it now.

    She's not really omg hawt. She's somewhat attractive, I don't hold it against her, I hold her being a moron against her.

    Where was THIS photo when the McCain campaign was in need of great campaign pictures? Can she see Russia if those folks bounce her high enough?
