Nonetheless, as a woman, a mother and a feminist, I am delighted that she did as well as she did. By staying in the race she did, as she said today, put 18 million cracks in that glass ceiling leading to the White House. She accomplished, as she said, the remarkable task of making it unremarkable that future women will be considered true contenders in such a race. Hillary Clinton is a brilliant woman, an inspired politician, and a great leader for our country. I believe that she will continue to be so in whatever the next role for her turns out to be. And I sincerely hope it is a significant one.
I am grateful that she came out so strongly and clearly for Obama and for the Democratic party. Good for her. In the coming months, may her followers be as clear and gracious as she was today.
