Hillary Clinton and the gender card

Hillary supporters are now playing the gender card.

“Women will indeed be upset if it appears people are trying to push Hillary Clinton out of the way,” said Carol Fowler, the South Carolina Democratic chair who is backing Obama. “If you are going to ask her to withdraw, you’d better be making a strong case.”

I see. Obama is where he is because he’s black, right Geraldine? And Hillary is being held back because she’s a woman, or she’s going to win because she’s a woman.

Why do Hillary and her supporters keep bringing up the features that neither she nor Obama can control? (Issues of determinism aside….)

Remember what they said in late 2007: http://www.boston.com…. 0/15/clintons_team_says_women_will_carry_win/

Why can’t we focus on policy? This bullshit about Hillary’s gender needs to be called exactly what it is: a talking point for the single-issue voter–the worst kind of voter available.

I don’t care if she’s a neon-green hermaphrodite. The bottom line is that her arguments suck, as I’ve already made abundantly clear.
