“Campaigning on an insistent call for change, Obama outlasted former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in a historic race that sparked record turnout in primary after primary, yet exposed deep racial divisions within the party.”

This from Talking Points Memo.

I find it interesting that we can talk about the “deep racial divisions” but can’t be bothered to even consider the gender divisions. Villifying a woman for having the gall – The Gall – to run for president. It’s deeply, deeply sad.
