The Demo Memo: Hillary Clinton and Sexism in the 2008 Presidential Race

Excerpted from this post at The Demo Memo

Hillary Clinton has been fighting a silent battle throughout this
entire presidential primary. So far, the fact that she is female has
been behind most of the attacks on her character and appearance. Even
Clinton's handlers disagreed among themselves as to how she should
portray herself to her supporters and the media. I can think of
several times at which her femaleness was thrust front and center. The
question about whether she prefers diamonds or pearls at a debate. The
story about Clinton's cleavage showing on the Senate floor. The story
of her choking up in New Hampshire.
