It’s been a good night in America with Dems both mainstream and progressive winning lots of seats at the state level. But there’s also a lot of talk as to how badly Hillary “under-performed” in 2016.
Obviously, her campaign was far from perfect. But also, it’s a really long-winded way of saying that way too many Americans (including, unfortunately, many women) will vote for shitty men before they’ll ever vote for qualifed women.
Which is to say, getting a black person elected president was doing the impossible. But finally getting a woman elected might be an even bigger hill to climb.
