"What worries me is that some women, perhaps especially younger ones, hope to deny or escape the sexual caste system; thus Iowa women over 50 and 60, who disproportionately supported Senator Clinton, proved once again that women are the one group that grows more radical with age."
That older women are more radical argument--I just don't want to believe it! And today, this young(ish) woman is coming out with an announcement: I'm supporting Hillary. I join Veronica--see comments in post below. Yesterday's "iron my shirt" assholes being one--but just one--of the things that pushed me over the edge. (Addendum: And if you think those hecklers were isolates, see comments, below.)
Gloria is supporting Hillary too. Says she:
"I’m supporting Senator Clinton because like Senator Obama she has community organizing experience, but she also has more years in the Senate, an unprecedented eight years of on-the-job training in the White House, no masculinity to prove, the potential to tap a huge reservoir of this country’s talent by her example, and now even the courage to break the no-tears rule. I’m not opposing Mr. Obama; if he’s the nominee, I’ll volunteer. Indeed, if you look at votes during their two-year overlap in the Senate, they were the same more than 90 percent of the time. Besides, to clean up the mess left by President Bush, we may need two terms of President Clinton and two of President Obama."
Here's to two terms for Hillary, two for Obama. And hell, if Edwards is man enough to take back his real-politicians-don't-cry comment, two for him then too.
