they "would have voted for Bill Clinton all over again if they had the chance."

The interviewer also expresses shock over a comment made by Hillary's campaign media consultant Mandy Grunwald in the documentary.

"Women who judged Hillary for staying with Bill Clinton would have voted for Bill Clinton all over again if they had the chance. And kept saying so…And yet they took it out on Hillary," Grunwald reportedly says.

Hillary says, "That's exactly right."

"I wish I understood it, I really do," she continues. "And look, I lived through that, where women were judging me and then a little conversation would lead to the fact that they had a similar issue or their sister did or their friend did, and there was so much anxiety and even fear wrapped up in it. But it was also true that, as we saw in survey after survey, he could, if he ran today, get re-elected. What is it about this double standard, both double standard in public and double standard in private? I think the movie does a good job of raising that issue. Trying to answer it conclusively is impossible, but at least we should be asking ourselves that question.

3. Haven't heard that saying "in a dog's age."

Yeah, and they are about to find out what it's like praying to your little monthly friend to arrive every month.

Abortion becomes illegal; every miscarriage and missed period becomes suspect. Imagine an abusive ex-husband and how much trouble they can now cause.

Next should be divorce rights. Can't wait to see how women and their "green eye friend" make out during that.

5. That's why a lot of women don't vote for women.

Hillary was ambitious, and a lot of people didn't like her involvement in Bill's administration, especially since she was working on health care reform. People felt she was using her husband's career as a springboard for building her own, and they didn't like having a career-oriented First Lady. Besides, they had to tear down health care reform and they wanted to punish her for trying to get it passed. But jealousy was and still is a reason why Hillary is sort of controversial.

2. Sexism is very strong among women also . That was the BIGGEST thing hurting Clinton. The attacks

were more effective because of that existing bigotry .

4. Girls raised to hate "feminine" frequently loathe other women.

Look to the god-botherers for more examples.

ernst uses her castrating skills as campaign promo

palin uses her "come fuck me" pumps and upshots

this new one amongst the "chosen" uses her photo-op family to promote her venom

9. It really comes down to our hangups about sex

A cheating spouse is not a reason to end a marriage for everyone. And really it's no one else's business.
