Like Rebecca Traister, the author of this Salon piece on Hillary v Chris Matthews, I too am not a Hillary supporter. But last night I was glad she proved the pundits wrong. I don’t have cable but, surprise surprise, I read the play-by-plays on what they were saying about her on Twitter.
As a woman wants to be taken seriously, I was annoyed at how the final word on Hillary the other night at the debate was about her wardrobe. But I also didn’t like her girly response to the likability question, “Well, that hurts my feelings…” I haven’t seen the video of her tearing up, but that’s no reason why people, even her fellow opponents, should gang up on her.
The Salon essay is great, so I won’t blather on anymore. Go read it and let me know what you think.
