Why, when referring to presidential candidates do you get the following:
Now, would someone correct me in my belief that as someone who the state of New York twice elected as their representative in the United States Senate, Hillary Clinton is entitled to be referred to as Senator Clinton?
I know it’s a small thing, but we don’t call him Mr Obama, do we? We don’t refer to others as Mitt or Mike like we’re at a barbecue?
If I believed it was through affection, I might understand the thing about calling her Hillary – she’s been at the forefront of American political culture since at least 1992 after all. I don’t think it is affection because Hillary Rodham Clinton is not someone who engenders affection on a wide scale.
I don’t give a shit what your politics or your opinions of her are, even if you don’t respect her you should respect the office she’s held.
That, or ignore the office for everyone. Calling her Mrs Clinton doesn’t make her look weak and feeble and female, it makes you look like an anachronistic fool.
