Sexism works for Hillary

Even the casual observer knows that, in the halls of power, sexism is alive and well in America. This will ultimately end up working for Hillary Clinton in her quest for the presidency.

I realize that many women are just as sexist as the most neanderthal man among us. However, when a man in politics, the media, or business is confronted by a powerful women we can use the interaction as a window into their sexist/non-sexist souls. Should these men or women mistreat the powerful woman (Hillary), it has the potential to alienate 51% of the electorate.

It will be interesting to watch a bunch of angry white men take lessons in how to be non-sexist in a confrontation with a powerful woman. Those who can't master the art of being non-sexist under pressure, will find themselves jeopardizing their careers.

Here is an example of how not to do it.
