Of course she did. That and the unconsciously sexist bots.
Hillary Clinton: “Incredible” Elizabeth Warren Lost Because She’s a Woman — Vanity Fair
In all fairness to Evita, she doesn’t go quite that far, though clearly Warren’s media fanbase is ready to go that far and farther.
Speaking with Vanity Fair at the New York premiere of Hillary on Wednesday night, Clinton reflected on Warren’s campaign, admitting that “she has been an incredible candidate”—who, like fellow candidates Amy Klobuchar and Kamala Harris, was subjected to the realities of misogyny in politics. That difficulty is something Clinton knows a thing or two about.
“I think we made some progress, but there still was a lot of the unconscious bias and the gendered language that has been used around the women candidates,” Clinton said. “I think it affected all of the women that ran.”
Clinton also acknowledged that Warren’s campaign is now at a crossroads. “She has really set the bar for putting out policies that would make a big difference in lives of Americans,” the former New York senator said. “Now she’s obviously taking the time to think about what’s ahead for her. She’s been an incredible and effective competitor.”
Time to join Hillary in the woods for some chardonnay before beginning a multi-year Spite Across the World tour. And then a podcast.
Anyway, if Hillary thinks that Warren was the victim of unconscious bias and gendered language, maybe we should all refer to Warren as “he” or “it”.
