    during the Obama presidency we will see in equal portions spewed out in the sexism we will see during the coming years with Hillary Clinton.

    There will be some on the left, no doubt.  But it will pale in comparison to the deluge of misogyny that will come from the right.  Just look at what Julia Gillard experienced in Australia to get an idea of what's coming.  The right wing here is even nastier and louder.

    I recall Clinton supporters being outraged about the sexism that came from some quarters on the left in 2008, which was absolutely justified, but that was child's play to what we would have seen from the right had Hillary won the nomination and presidency that year.

    If Hillary gets the nod in 2016 (and I believe she will), we will see the right's misogyny Death Star become fully operational.  That's what I dread more than anything.  It's gonna be ugly.
