There. That needed saying.
And she's not just any married woman, she is a scorned married woman.
If she had dropped Bill eight years ago-- and not held onto him for political expediency like Obama held onto his church-- those sorts of women who would have liked to see her in the White House would have never gone swooning after Obama. But she kept him around and he kept humiliating her.
If this was sexism politics, it was particularly awful to watch. You kind of lose any respect for a woman who puts up with that sort of political undermining from her husband, or you outright admire her breathtaking ability to take a punch. But it doesn't make you think she's very smart. If she suffered from sexism, it was mostly coming from the other side of her bed. (Assuming normal conjugal conventions, of course.)
No. Her weakness is her own, and her strength is Bill. She can't Kill Bill without bankrupting herself. Maybe, by having forged her own political identity in this campaign, she'll find the support she needs to Do the Deed.
Plus, being a divorcee would endear her to quite a large constituency of feminists and their emasculated lapdogs in higher education. Alas, she would have had a lot more street cred if she had kicked her horndog to the curb during his presidency.
But she couldn't then and can't now. Politically, socially, emotionally, she has tied her dim star to his wagging finger.
She's a lightweight, even for a girl.
What Guy said. We can survive a mediocre man, but we can't survive a woman who is less than amazing.
From the comments, the irrepressible GuyK writes: Would I vote for a woman for president? Damn right..the right one I would. I have found that when it comes to raw courage and strength of convictions no man could ever out do a woman...but that is also the reason it would have to be the right woman..some woman who as Ronnie said about Thatcher..more balls than any man he had ever seen.
