A woman told me that she is voting for Clinton because she is a woman. My comment was 'shame on you'.

I know there are those that are not fans of HC, but I think we should recognize this for what it is, a special and important moment, in the history of the Country we all love and cherish.

I might be a little ahead of myself but I am confident it will all come to pass tomorrow evening and I can't wait!
Only liberals care about "making history" instead of voting for a candidate based on their views.

What makes it about quota? People saying they want to vote for Hillary because she is a woman.
I'll quote a few posters.
They don't want to wait for a better woman than Hillary. Basically acknowledging that Hillary is a bad choice, but at least she is a woman.
Because if Hillary is elected it will make history. As if that is all that matters.
I would have voted for Nikki Haley in a second.

I would have voted for Jim Webb
Both are better choices than we now face.

People do that, I am sure you could also find people who are voting for Trump for superficial reasons as well. There are always gonna be people on both sides that vote for these superficial reasons.

Well said! Trump supporters will have no one to blame for this impending defeat but themselves. You guys nominated a reckless loser whereby giving sane America no other alternative.

1. I thought gender was a social construct. And that genders were fluid. And that she could wake up tomorrow and decide that she feels like a man and could therefore self-identify as a man. Do you see the ridiculousness of what we create in this country to justify the BS that SJWs throw in our direction, and that we are all supposed to follow and endorse. "Cause if we don't we're haters. Or something.

2. Think about the Supreme Court. The 2A. Illegal immigration and border security. Refugee intake. Support for law enforcement. Terrorism. Job creation. Safe spaces and micro aggressions and BLM and gender neutral bathrooms and SJWs pushing their SJW agendas. Media corruption. Political corruption. Think about those things in the context of Trump. And then in the context of Clinton. And then vote for whoever you choose. But don't dismiss your fellow Americans who will make a different choice from your own. I hope that I get to see a female president in my life time. I hope that Clinton loses tomorrow.

Keep in mind that nobody attended Hillary's rallies and book-signings while Trump sold out every place he entered, and often with very little notice beforehand.

First female president? Maybe down the line when a good conservative candidate will hit the trail at some point, but not Hillary. If you truly love this country, then you sure as hell won't vote for Hillary, who is more likely to be further investigated for these recent e-mail scandals. It's not over yet.
It's not over...but the fat lady is getting dressed.

Also, rally attendance has absolutely nothing to do with voter turn out, the fact that Trump supporters keep correlating the two makes me sad. Donald is a spectacle, and a fairly new one at that, people are going to watch...but large crowds do not equal votes. It just equals a lot of people who didn't have anything to do and who apparently didn't want to avoid traffic and just catch it on TV.

Math and logic have left the building apparently.

Women have always been qualified to be POTUS, Hillary Clinton specifically isn't fit to be POTUS. There are tons of women in history who have been qualified to be POTUS, they've never made it to the election though. Gender shouldn't matter at all, therefore we shouldn't be trying to make history with our vote just to say that we elected a woman. I certainly won't, there will be other women who are actually qualified and fit to be POTUS, I'll vote for them.

Just Not this globalist open border lying scum
Agreed.

If talking a female Dem for POTUS: def Tammy Duckworth over Hillary.

Hopefully the GOP can learn from this, regroup and present a electable candidate in 4 years.
At all costs? I think we've all seen enough of the Clinton machine doing things "at all costs" to know that we need to keep them out of the White House.
