The issues of experience and race and "working class" (I mean, don't we all "work"?) have obscured the real elephant in the room, and that is gender. Until gender issues are addressed, the Clintons will continue to exploit them, and the danger of fragmenting the party will persist.
In some not-so-obscure ways, HRC represents the plight of literally millions of American women, who have sacrificed careers for family, who have bumped up against the glass ceiling, whose husbands have cheated on them, who have seen male bombast and "charisma" trump thoughtfulness, consensus building, and loyality.
She is an icon, not a person.
And what does Barack Obama represent to these women? more charisma, less experience, and possibly racial stereotypes of useless "sports", misogynist rappers, missing fathers....
Hillary Clinton is a symbol, an icon to many women, and her flaws matter little, because this isn't about Hillary Clinton. This isn't about Michigan, or Florida, or 3 am. This is about gender, not about the candidate.
The sooner Obama addresses this issue, the better off we'll all be. And I think he will, because he is a very smart man, and an exceptional person. It almost goes without saying that he must select a woman as his running mate. The idea that Bill Richardson or some other man can help capture some border state is dwarfed by the influence of gender on this race.
Hillary can't be that running mate, unfortunately. That is water under the bridge, and anyone with a grain of sense knows it. In a weird way, hubby Bill has "screwed" her again.
Obama supporters should recognize the problem, stop lambasting Hillary, and start taking positive steps to heal.
This means you.
