Hill Fire and Damnation - WSJ

Hill Fire and Damnation - WSJ: "Lessin is paraphrasing; Mrs. Clinton has not, as far as we know, used the word “uterus” on the campaign trail. But her appeals to female solidarity have left little else to the imagination. In last week’s debate, she interrupted her opponent to say: “Honestly, Sen. Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment.”

We thought that was ridiculous. Later we wondered why she didn’t go all in and describe her Goldman Sachs speaking fees as “675,000 cracks in the glass ceiling.” But then, we would scoff—we’re male, and men constitute less than half the voting-age population. If Mrs. Clinton can lock down the female vote, she can’t possibly lose.

Yet Mrs. Clinton’s I-am-woman message is getting a poor reception from women, at least from young ones. An MSNBC report from New Hampshire, noted by the Washington Free Beacon, features a couple of 20-something female Democrats who took offense at the debate declaration."
