Everybody is against something. If I don’t win the Democratic presidential nomination, despite carrying all the important states, and biting into Republican strongholds like Kentucky and West Virginia, my supporters will cry foul.
Sure. It’s purely sexism that is keeping me from winning the nomination. It’s a man’s world and the last thing they want is for a strong woman to become Commander-in-Chief. Look what happened to Gena Davis? Men pulled her TV show off the air.
The West Wing? Dominated by men and it lasted for years.
It’s not race. It can’t be. Look at Barack Obama. He’s black. Or white. But mostly black. And he’s managed to do very well, far beyond expectations. No, it’s not racism that is influencing this election for Democrats. It’s good old sexism.
The glass ceiling seems to stop at the Senate.
