The view from here

What happened in New Hampshire?

Re: “Hillary’s Free Pass” by Gail Collins (and other recent pieces expressing surprise and puzzlement at Clinton’s support from women voters in New Hampshire)– I find that I have a strong and visceral reaction to the scenario in which a woman has been working very long and hard– and effectively– and suddenly a less-examined, but nevertheless wonderfully self-assured man appears on the scene with a message that goes something like, “thanks so much for all your hard work, you’ve been great (and likable enough) and you deserve a break– I’ll just take it from here.” After seeing the results of the New Hampshire primary, I’m guessing that I’m not alone.
