Open Thread

For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: the smartest woman in the world complains about sexism in the campaign (paragraph breaks removed):

In an interview with ABC News' Cynthia McFadden to air on this evening's "Nightline," Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., says it's tougher for her to run as a woman than it is for her male opponent. Asked why she thinks so many women may be feeling sorry for her, Clinton said, "I think a lot of women project their own feelings and their lives onto me, and they see how hard this is. It's hard. It's hard being a woman out there. It is obviously challenging with some of the things that are said that are not even personal to me so much as they are about women."..."Every so often I just wish that it were a little more of an even playing field," she said, "but, you know, I play on whatever field is out there."...But apparently Clinton thinks -- based on this comment -- that the "playing field" is easier for a black man than a white woman.

Can you believe this nonsense? And this from the supposedly smartest woman in the world? Is this modern-day feminism: "Woe is Me" rather than "I am Woman, Watch me Grow!"?
