WASHINGTON (CNN) - Famed entertainer Dolly Parton said Tuesday she thinks a woman would make a good president — but she wouldn’t.
"Somebody said to me, 'Well, you know what - you've got such a big mouth and you know how to talk to people, did you ever think about running for president?'” the country singer told an audience at the National Press Club. I said, 'I think we've had enough boobs in the White House, but hopefully [President] Obama ain't gonna be one of them.'"
Parton, who is in Washington to promote the 75th anniversary of Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park, also joked a woman may be especially suited to show wrath against terrorist threats.
"Every 28 days, those terrorists better run deeper into them woods," she said, to laughter. "That's all I can say if we get a woman in there."
Boy, does she look a mess.
HERE'S A TIP FOR YOU DOLLY, HE IS A BOOB. YOU ARE RIGHT!
Hey Debi your:
"Democrats will not vote for a woman".
Excuse me, but wasn't Hillary on the Democrat ticket?" QUOTE!!!
GUESS what?? They didn't vote for her. She got pummeled in the primarys
While I hold Parton in higher esteem than I do Palin (Parton is a very shrewd business person, Palin is merely a "celebrity" with virtually no accomplishments), I think what we really need is a constitutional convention to re-write our constitution.
There is something really wrong when one party wins overwhelming majorities in both houses of Congress and its candidate wins the presidency by an overwhelming margin, yet the ruling party cannot actually govern effectively due to the opposition's road blocks.
At the least we need to amend the constitution to change the 60-vote cloture rule since most of the time a minority party can block legislation from coming to a vote.
Much love to Dolly Parton! Being able to laugh at oneself and not take life so serious is her gift.
Dolly would have my vote
if it wasnt for her breast we would not know her.
lol...a woman could much easily lure a terrorist into a trap too...
Whoa, calm down, blue. She's just making jokes. Don't be so testy.
Cute! I have always said we need a surge of men and women in their menopause to catch Al Qaida!
"Obama ain't gonna be one of them." Look up the word ain't in the dictionary, it is in there, but is looked down at as someone who is less educated.
No matter what her political persuasions, it's impossible to dislike or disrespect Dolly Parton. And, let it be acknowledged that she has a right to her opinions!
Another dimming star trying to recover light by using the name "Obama".
He's not but she certainly is. This coming from someone who should probably be using hubcaps for a bra.
Dolly! My Lady... "I will always love You." Isn't she Fantastic...
I see the self righteous internet tough guys/gals are out in full force today.
Wayne, Greenville TX Dolly parton is not an american treasure may be cow boy from TX ,bigot treasure. No more KKK and right wing republicans pease . Christine Williamson you better go back to school before you can comment on anybody.
Dolly must be having a blonde moment....There is a North Carolina side to the Smokies too (though TN folk don't think so...they are a little geography challenged)
Too late Dolly... It's official... He's a Boob
She entertains, she lightens the mood with a laugh and she makes us all think. Never mind her business acumen (which frankly is astounding) but she makes you think. Her perspective ir refreshing. Kudos to Dolly!
Dolly better watch out for good old J.B to be the boob here i don't think Obama can really be that dumb he'll surround himself with people he thinks are smart and they might prove that thought true but in the long run no one will listen to him in congress and the partisan lines will still remain and perhaps after 2 years Mr. Obama's dreams of hope and change will be crushed enough for him to start phoning it in.

In a since Obama is a boop, because he is giving life back to the world. Which is the sole purpose of a mammory….
OMG, put the alcohol away and step away from the keyboard.....
She should work for Faux News,we could call her Faux Parton and not be lying.
Sorry Dolly. I think the jury is already in on this one.
