Briefly, this morning: it's patently stupid and short-sighted to cast Hillary Clinton as "every woman" and morn the state of feminism and the feminist ideal as this piece from the NYT. If Hillary had been more like Obama in the first place, she wouldn't be getting shuttled off the stage at this point.
That is to say, if she had a compelling vision, the appearance of integrity, and a disdain for business as usual in government -- or if she was perceived that way -- she'd have been the nominee months ago and she wouldn't be shilling for every vote and voter to count today. 6 months ago I promise you she didn't think she'd have to compete in Kentucky; today she's there as if it's a moral imperative.
