Never Underestimate How Much America Hates Women

quote [ Many of these men (and women, too) would never admit that their hatred of Clinton was linked to her gender. She’s untrustworthy, they said—more so than a candidate who openly, compulsively lies more than any other candidate in recent memory. She’s corrupt, she has baggage, she’s shrill, she’s cold. Clinton was far from a perfect candidate, and there were lots of level-headed reasons to disagree with her. But it’s hard to look at the surplus of pure contempt lobbed at her over the years and not attribute it at least partly to the fact that she’s a woman. ]

If you still don't see it, if you still think that gender was not a major factor, I'm afraid you're unable to see it, and that is genuinely frightening.

I've said this before, must be your Alzheimer's: progressive policies actually poll very well with voters. The problem isn't the policies, it's the politics.

And she wasn't the most progressive candidate at all - she's to the right of Obama (who's borderline at best) on multiple key issues. She had the most progressive platform, because she needed to throw a bone to the Sanders voters (and even then her representatives fought the Sanders reps the whole way). That's down to the traction he got in the primaries and had nothing to do with Clinton.
