As Kate Zernike pointed out recently in the New York Times, there are more women in the pipeline than the last-chancers fear: in the Senate, in the House, in governors offices. Three years ago, who knew the name Obama? One of them might, in fact, find their way onto the ticket. I hope so.
I really do believe that America is ready – more than ready after eight years in hell – to elect a woman. But we can’t simply pick the one who happens to be available, especially when she is so divisive and brings along a time bomb of a husband. Instead of moving us forward, it could set us back decades.
Our women president is out there. And I believe we’ll find her sooner than we think.
Let’s wait and get it right.
The whole thing is worth reading, a vital antidote to the toxic madness that has been Hillary’s last stand. Will it end tonight?
