Says headline on MSNBC.com:
If not now, when can a woman be president?
Women face letdown of seeing Clinton’s shot at presidency fall short…
For clarification, see headline from alternative universe where Clinton won the primary:
If not now, when can an African-American become president?
Blacks face letdown of seeing Obama’s shot at presidency fall short…
It’s very simple…it’s too bad that race and gender got pitted against each other, but it was incredible progress that a woman and a black man were the top contenders for the Democratic presidential nominee. Somebody had to lose, but that didn’t have to mean one was more or less important than the other. And hey, I still see no reason Hillary can’t run in 2016. Or any other woman, perhaps in 2012 if the Republicans dare to enter the 20th century sometime before the 22nd rolls around. The mold has already been broken, and despite Hillary coasting by on being Bill Clinton’s wife, she deserves the credit.
