Hillary Clinton as a Settler Woman

When Lynn and I first came to Texas as pastors, I heard a lot about the difference between pioneer women and settler women.  Pioneer women were the first in their fields and settler women were people who followed others in their fields.

While it is true Hillary Clinton would have been the first woman to serve as President of the United States, it is highly unlikely she would have been known if her husband Bill had not been a previous president.  In some ways she was following his path.  The following of her husband may be one reason a good number of women did not campaign for her enthusiastically.  These women wanted a true pioneer woman to be first and not a settler woman.

With this kind of thinking, I would count as a settler man.  Lynn became a pastor a week before I did.
