7. I would like to see Hillary support other female politicians

I want to see a female President.

But just because Hillary is female doesn't mean she will represent my interests as President. I wouldn't want to see Sarah Palin be the first female President, either. So being female should be a strong consideration, but not the only one.

For the record, I prefer Bernie's policy stances, but I haven't been throwing my support behind his run because I'd rather see a female President. But on the other side, Warren hasn't revealed a whole lot of social justice cards, either. This next election is probably going to be a reluctant vote for me no matter what.

Anyway, Hillary has enormous resources. What I would like to see is her use those resources to back a BETTER FEMALE CANDIDATE. She can be the bigger woman by not insisting on first place in line and acting generously to promote the cause of all women instead.
