Psst! Dave Barry has news about Hillary Clinton: She's really a woman!

Psst! Dave Barry has news about Hillary Clinton: She's really a woman!

"I just realized something. Follow me closely: Unless my research is incorrect — which is unlikely, since I didn’t do any — if Hillary Clinton wins the election, she will be the first woman U.S. president ever! (Unless the rumors about Rutherford B. Hayes are true.) So that would be pretty historic, right? Hillary Clinton possibly becoming the first woman president? It seems weird that you never hear anybody mention it."

Actually, I think Hayes was pretty safely male. Not sure about James Buchanan.

"The roll call is one of the more entertaining parts of the political conventions, because it’s when the various delegations get a chance to tell the world what makes their states special (“…proud home of the world’s largest free-standing fiberglass turnip…”). I thought the strongest showing at this convention came from the Delaware delegation, who proudly proclaimed (really) that they are “the state that brought you Kevlar, Nylon and Gore-Tex” as well as the home of “tax-free shopping” and “George ‘Bad to the Bone’ Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers.” They also mentioned Joe Biden."
