I should offer the disclaimer that I actually have friends that worked in the Clinton administration, and I found it extremely, extremly off-putting when Obama characterized her work as first lady as merely having tea with diplomats. He's knows better (and so do I based on those relationships).

For him to suggest otherwise, when I believe he knows better, is extremely sexist. He ought to be evolved enough to give credit where it is due in that regard, but apparently he is not based on his statements.
