Life After Hillary

I've definitely been having a hard time understanding the poll earlier this week that showed 25 percent of Hillary's supporters voicing their disappointment by voting for John McCain. I mean, I'm hardly the first to say it, but excuse me, just what kind of feminist protest is that? (See previous post if remotely unconvinced.)

In her Aug. 25 op-ed in the NYTimes ("Second-Place Citizens"), Susan Faludi attempts to explain not this insanity but merely these Hillary supporters' disappointment by offering a suggestive comparative analysis to an earlier moment in time--the 1920s, after women won the vote. Check it out, if you haven't. She raises some excellent points.
