"Say what you want about Hillary Clinton..."

Nice comment over at Sullly:

The fact that so many other qualified women in the party, like Olympia Snowe (whom I admire greatly), Kay Baily Hutchinson, Christie Todd Whitman (my former governor) are able to communicate and connect with the American people, were passed over for this disaster of a candidate, is greatly disheartening to me as a young woman. Say what you want about Hillary Clinton, but she didn't ask to be treated differently. She was able to take on the big boys and even throw some elbows, too. I just can't believe this is the example that the Republicans want to set for the future and for young women especially.

Snowe I long admired, and Whitman's early success was based on pragmatism. The Bush administration trashed them both by making them toe the party line over remaining principled. Now the McCain campaign has gone one step further, with their Stepford Vice.
