We have Hillary all wrong: Americans hate a politician of the press’ imagination. To her detractors, she’s either a bloodless automaton or the devil incarnate. Is it any wonder that she’s guarded? – Salon
This article posted at Salon suggests that much of the criticism aimed at Hillary occurs because she is not a man.
As best we can tell, if we are properly following the article, Hillary’s problems begin with her womanhood.
As Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado, a Hillary supporter, put it on CBS’s Face the Nation, “If she was a man, all this stuff wouldn’t be at the same level.” Of course, Trump fired back that she plays the “woman card,” and the media didn’t dare rebut it for fear, I suppose, of seeming to lend Trump proof.
This in turn generates a certain level of defensiveness.
