Phyllis Schlafly

This silly report came from feminists who believe there are no differences between males and females, and that anyone who suggests otherwise should be cast into exterior darkness. Remember Harvard's former president, Larry Summers.

Another reason Clinton lost was that people resented her sense of entitlement. She believed that the presidency was hers, and that all the people whom the Clintons had appointed or helped, like New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, should fall in line.

Clinton kept repeating that she was the candidate most ready (on Day 1) to be America's CEO and commander-in-chief. That's hard to believe when she couldn't run her own campaign staff.

The New York Times reported that her employees, working with a "war room mentality," "hurled expletives at one another, stormed out of meetings and schemed to get one another fired." They engaged in "profanity-laden shouting matches" and used unprintable expletives.

Clinton promotes victimhood on her Web site by touting the long-discredited falsehood that women are paid "only 77 cents for every dollar men earn" and the worry that there might be any restriction on abortion. She is still pushing the Equal Rights Amendment even though it was rejected after 10 years of national debate; the Supreme Court declared it dead in 1982.

Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama, is another feminist who, despite her bloated salary from a Chicago hospital, oozes the aura of victimhood. Although she was privileged to attend Princeton University, she wrote that she felt "as if I really don't belong."

Clinton's allies blame the national news media for unfairly terminating her campaign because they are "suffering from sexism" and "Obama mania." Ellen Malcolm of Emily's List and Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood emoted for an hour on C-SPAN about how sexism spoiled Clinton's chances.

Contrary to the image Clinton has carefully cultivated, she is not a self-made woman like Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice or for former Prime Minister of England Margaret Thatcher. Clinton got her career the old-fashioned way; she married it.
