Welcome back to on the -- foxnews.com.
Live we were just talking about -- of state Clinton's testimony.
On Capitol Hill -- today it was can't let him at times she was emotional at times too and Cal Thomas.
In our daily -- -- -- things that that might sort of dominate the media coverage Cowell.
By the way as you probably have already noticed is app from the bunker and actually -- the book in our DC bureau I guess the the Defcon three is no longer in place.
-- well we we haven't seen yet we thank you very much got little snow here today but you know we have snow jobs in Washington all the time so it's nothing new job of the up.
I'm not I think I'm not even knowing athletes carry -- that well I think you know some of the coverage has been orgasm make in the sense of it defending.
Hillary Clinton has I kind of got us yet she takes responsibility but on the other hand she's not really responsible they've really done that's all happened several levels down I didn't know anything.
Look what this is from a media standpoint is to burnish her credentials to run for president.
The media was behind the first African American president.
They want to do it again for Hillary in 2016 with a first female president.
So she is a victim but she's not a victim she is -- little wave the suffering wife and yet she's one of the strongest women and most intelligent women we've ever now.
If you look in USA today today just above my column and Bob Beckel and common ground you'll see a very very well reasoned.
Opposing opinion to the main USA today.
Editorial by senator Johnson from Wisconsin it was really.
Honest and open about confronting her.
But of course you know the media play it both ways if you if you beat up on a woman if you.
If you hold her accountable.
And then somehow you're a misogynist and here you remind every woman -- her first husband.
But if it's a Republican woman and a conservative of course all of those rules change.
Often I do I really don't know what the sale to that -- of winning group cal the what women in combat ruling from the Pentagon what's your view on that.
Well look I I've -- a lot of women West Point graduates very confident.
Very accomplished very intelligent if they can do the job fine but look.
The military of the United States should not be a sociological experience.
The purpose of the military is to fight and win war it's it's not about equality and promotions.
And all of the rest.
I I think it you know combat is a very very unique kind of experience.
Men bond at a certain level with other man that is totally different from women.
And I think this is a very very serious issue that needs to be explored.
Beyond some kind of political act frankly to gain more female approval promote more votes for the Democrats.
If they can do the job if they don't have to lower.
The requirement -- frankly it's been done a lot of basic training we've seen over the years.
And the Marines and the army especially have cut back on the physical requirements for women just so they can pass the test.
I don't think that's good for the country it women can do as well as man.
Without these bonding issues -- I think fine but those are questions that remain to be answered.
All right Cal Thomas cal of course is one of those brilliant minds -- discussed there's all sorts of media issues on FOX News Watch every Saturday to -- and 1130.
Eastern hosted by -- -- dominated by the likes of Cal Thomas out wonderful to see my friend.
Thanks -- always a pleasure thank you cal.
