Hillary Needs a Superhero!

Thu, February 21, 2008


As I’ve been getting over my disappointment about John Edwards dropping out of the presidential race, I’ve been pondering the other candidates — what do they bring to the table?

One thing that can be telling about a candidate is identifying their other supporters — are those people I can connect with to help figure out who to vote for?

In deciding who to support, I’m not generally swayed by celebrity endorsements. They’re interesting and they sell newspapers, but they don’t influence my vote. But the candidates must think they do.

This year, there’s a whole crop of famous muscle-men, superhero types who are backing some of the candidates — but only the men.

Chuck Norris, of Walker, Texas Ranger fame, has a great ad backing Mike Huckabee. And of course the Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger is supporting John McCain. I found out recently that McCain also has Rambo on his side, and Barack Obama is getting some persuasive support from Hulk Hogan!

So where is Hillary’s bad-ass support? It must be out there somewhere!

In case Hillary Clinton’s people are scouting out a likely candidate, here are my nominations for Hillary’s Endorsement Superheroes:

Elektra, as played by Jennifer Garner. Do you really think someone will vote for one of the other candidates once they see that ninja bladework? I think not.

There are couple of choices from the X-Men movies — I think she could go either with Storm, as played by Halle Berry, or Dr. Jean Grey, as portrayed by Famke Janssen. Those are a couple of gals who can be pretty darn persuasive!

We could always call in Lara Croft, though I hear Angelina Jolie might be a tad busy these days.

Of course, we could always go with someone a bit more contemporary — Sarah Connor and the Terminator anyone? How could the Governator object to that mother/warrior??

There’s always Xena, Warrior Princess. I think Lucy Lawless has a little extra time on her hands since that show was cancelled.

Even a combination of these women could be persuasive, and I think Hillary could use a little extra help in Texas and Ohio between now and March 4.

Which superhero do you think would best serve our only woman presidential candidate?

Of course, there’s always the option of becoming one yourself!

    I like Dr. Jean Grey since she is a mind-reader she will be able to cut through all the BS everybody hands her!

    She thought Bill would ultimately be her superhero. Turns out he was her campaign’s worst enemy.

    I thought the Grim Reaper was already her superhero, since he’s come to her rescue in some many situations in the past.
