NEWSFLASH: HILLARY CLINTON HAS A HUSBAND! WHO USED TO BE PRESIDENT! AND IS CAMPAIGNING FOR HER!
So I'm reading the 89,000th article about the Clinton-Obama feud, this one at the Politico, on the specific subject of the Obama campaign's decision to talk about "the Clintons" rather than "Hillary Clinton," and I read this:
In fact, Obama and Clinton are both in uncharted waters, particularly when it comes to how the dynamic will affect the female voters on whom Clinton depends. Will they be jarred away from Hillary by Bill's emergence as an equal partner?
Or will they be offended by Obama's statement of that fact?
May I offer a third choice? Neither? How about neither?
Bill may be more visible now, and he may be upsetting quite a few people these day who were disposed to like him, but for the love of God, insider reporters, please get this through your heads: Ordinary Americans knew he was married to Hillary -- a long time ago! Ordinary Americans fully expected that he would be deeply involved in her campaign, and, if it happened, her presidency -- and anyone who's expressed support for her has done so knowing full well that this would be the case. And that includes feminists -- no one supported Hillary Clinton and then suddenly thought, "Hey, I wanted a woman to be president and now I see she's married to this guy who's really involved in everything she does politically! What's up with that? Why didn't somebody tell me about him?"
Mainstream media types, stop saying stupid things like this.
