Christine Stansell et al, writes, in the Puffington Post:

We are women who support Hillary Clinton for the presidency of the United States. We do so because we believe that she will be the best president for the entire country. And as feminists, we also believe that Clinton is the best choice for attending to issues of special importance to women.

No comments from the legions of women, Juanitta Broaddrick Hickey, Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers etc who the Clintons debased and abused.

Else where the Puffington Post does provide a commenet by Margaret Carlson:

I covered the Clinton White House for 8 years. and I don’t think it would be good for the country to go back there.

I can not see how woman can benefit for the Clintons’ particular version of feminism.

Addendum: (Bit)

From what I see on the leftie blogs just now… Talk Left, for example..(We read ’em so you don’t have to) what this is going to come down to is a contest to see which is going to win over the Democrat party; The Gender Feminist or the race baiter.

But I find even there, bits of light streaking through… As an example from the above link:

I’m a woman and I have worked in a male-dominated work place.  My field is hugely male-dominant.  Indeed, for many years I was the only woman in my department.And yet.  I’ve deleted the long comment about how counterproductive the notion that women’s styles are underappreciated in comparison with men’s was in my life.  Let’s just say that not only do I not buy it, but that one of my big life-lessons was to learn that shrugging off those sorts of concerns led to a massive reduction in the sorts of slights that used to prompt those concerns in the first place.  You don’t win respect by expecting to be disrespected and whining about it when you are.  You win respect by expecting to be respected.

So please stop speaking about women as though we were some sort of monolithic group.  I tend to find it disrespectful of those of us who actually do have different opinions or experiences.

I suspect and suppose that in the long run, this contest among the Democrats will have¬† people lunging toward the Republicans. It’s what usually happens when Demorcrats force themselves into real examination of their supposed core beliefs. Such self- examination¬† occurred following four years of Jimmy Carter, for example. It’ll be interesting to see how many, like this one, begin to understand that what the Democrat party has been centered on all this time, isn’t where THEY are.
