Hillary and the Other 1%

Basically, your argument is that Hillary’s gender is enough of a reason for progressives to vote for her. Despite her active involvement in her husband’s policy decisions with respect to crime bills, welfare reform, and trade agreements. Despite her service on the Walmart board, where she did little if anything to curb that company’s anti-labor and anti-small business policies. Despite her support for the war in Iraq. Despite her involvement in selling American company’s fracking contracts to countries around the world. Despite the fact that she was up to her knees in Canada’s tar sands development and quietly championed the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Despite her support for regime change in Libya. Despite her support for the TPP. I can’t get on board — I’m voting for an intellect, not a lady part.
