In a Facebook post the highly estimable columnist Caroline Glick responded to those who have been asking her whether she is happy that a woman is running for president of the United States.
Here is what Glick said:
For what it's worth, I am sick and tired of being asked if I am excited as a woman that Hillary Clinton is running for president.
The short answer is no.
In a bit more detail, I think that anyone who views Clinton as a feminine or feminist role model has no idea what it means to be a working woman.
Here are the facts: Hillary married her way into her career, just like Evita Peron. Her career is entirely a product of her marriage.
And it isn't like her meal ticket husband is a pioneer of women's rights. He's a sexual predator.
Hillary Clinton was never in the dark about Bill's character. She's been a full partner in his escapades in the sense that she has enabled his obscene behavior, loudly, unapologetically, without hesitation or an ounce of shame, from the very beginning.
As a woman, I am embarrassed and insulted that the first woman the Democrats ever chose to nominate for president is Hillary Clinton. The fact that they couldn't get behind a self-made woman like Carly Fiorina shows that their supposed concern for women is complete nonsense.
She doesn't represent women anymore than Donald Trump does.
This is fair and balanced and reasoned.
I will note that many women are far more hostile to Hillary Clinton than even I am. They believe that she represents their gender badly… if at all. As one young woman explained to me the other day: If women know anything, they know other women. When women look at Hillary Clinton they are horrified that she represents them.
