  • It was an amazing year. Hillary is truly a trailblazer. The next time a woman gets as far as she did (or farther!) it will not be a gender issue because Hillary cleared the way.
    Sarah Palin's failures made it clear that women do not vote simply based on gender or any other issue; we are informed voters.
