Madeleine Albright let's women know that there is "a special place in hell" for women who don't support other women. Really? Well, there is also a special place in hell for party apparatchiks who attempt to shame, blackmail or extort votes for one candidate over another. The idea that a woman has to vote for another woman is the kind of simple-minded bullshit that has a great many voters in this country identifying themselves as independents. These two incestuous political parties, both of which are soaked in dark money and special interest influence, have been leading the American people around by their faith, fear, race, religion, socioeconomic class and now their gender for decades.
The Caterpillar, Chris Matthews, has made much, as have others, in recent days about Sanders not being a Democrat. Where in the goddamned hell is it written in the Constitution, the Federalist Papers or the laws of this land that one has to be a blood Democrat or a bloody Republican to run for president or any other elected office? I am one Liberal lady who is here to say that I will vote for Clinton if and when she is nominated. Until then I am for Bernie without feeling the slightest alienation from my sex or my hard won feminist identity. I have never voted my genitals and will not start now.
