Some feminists believe that the election of Hillary Clinton to the Whitehouse would symbolically depict the breaking of the final pane in the glass ceiling that separates men and women in the business arena. To be sure, this possibility has provided Clinton with substantial support from women, but not with millennial females, many who regard her as another “gray-haired white guy.”
Obama once said, “You’re likable enough Hillary”– and maybe she is by her core supporters, and the New York Times, but millennials, many who supported Bernie Sanders, believe she lacks the full package. They think she is a war hawk, obscenely wealthy, dishonest and has a history of berating and attacking vulnerable women. Of course, the obvious alternative is Donald Trump (third party candidates are a wasted option), and the choice seems to be a pick between the lesser of two evils.
We chose to endorse Donald Trump, largely because Hillary Clinton has bad character and that her dishonest traits are irrevocable– part of her DNA. There remains hope in Trump. We had to agree with the ugly truth– Hillary has plenty of experience, but it is tainted and corrupt experience in too many instances.
Even the liberal writer and Clinton backer, Elizabeth Drew, a regular contributor to The New York Review of Books, had to concede that “She comes across to many as a packaged know-it-all, the super-smart girl who put off the boys in school.” Drew points out that Clinton’s email problems have become a “chronic burden” for her campaign and that “polls showed that 56% of respondents agreed that Clinton should have been prosecuted.”
