OK, I’ve Had Enough of the Palin Gender Politics Game. Now I’m Really Pissed. September 12, 2008

I am a white woman headed toward 54 years of age. I have been an Obama supporter since the 2004 convention. I was a Title 9 athlete. I was the second class of women to graduate from a previously all male college. I entered a scientific field at the time dominated by men (genetics—Rosalind Franklin—who really discovered DNA—was my heroine. She didn’t win the Nobel Prize, the men did). I am a mother and a wife, a daughter, a sister, and an aunt. I am an immigrant and I fiercely love this country.

I always hoped that Hillary wouldn’t enter the race because I felt that she was so divisive at a time when we didn’t need divisiveness any more and because— sorry to say this HC supporters—I always was uneasy about the fact that she got where she was because of her husband. She carpet bagged into New York and won a seat many native New Yorkers craved and deserved and she ran her Senate race and her presidential campaign on the back of her husband’s campaign machine. The whole thing always made me uncomfortable, very uncomfortable. She was cashing in on paybacks of the worst kind. Her husband strayed, she stood by him, she was owed and she should be rewarded. It never felt right. That’s too bad for her, really it is, but when it comes to the future, I’m thinking about me, and my family, and my stepson in Kabul, not Hillary’s career. Source Article
