I'm really appalled by the animosity towards Hillary Clinton. It seems that people in this country are so hypocritical, saying that we are ready for a woman to be president, but not that woman. What other kind of woman do people expect to run for President of the United States? People who rise to political power are people who like power and know how to become more powerful. So in the face of a powerful woman, people in this country whose opinions I would otherwise respect become suddenly very sexist and prejudiced. I'm not the biggest Hillary fan, but I do respect what she has accomplished in her life and find her to be a fine role model for young women and young people in general. She has had to compete in a man's world and seems to be doing very well in Washington. This article echoes my current opinion about the negative attitudes toward a powerful woman campaigning for a position of power.
"It has become increasing clear in this presidential campaign that it is harder to run as a woman than as an African American male."
