I have a question. What to you say to millions of women who only bothered paying attention to politics because they were excited about voting for the first female president? Do you just say, i'm sorry that your candidate was tossed out to the curb like yesterdays garbage, but for the good of the country you should vote for the man most responsible for it?
Good lord. Okay, in answer to your "question"? Grow up. Clinton is not being kicked out to the curb like yesterday's garbage any more than Hubert Humphrey, Ted Kennedy, Dennis Kucinich, or any other man who lost a bid for the Presidency. [update: Howard Dean. Helloooooo?] It's politics, it's not "fair," and what's ironic is, Hillary Clinton totally understands that, because she's BEEN in politics for a very long time. Those supporters "who only bothered paying attention to politics" recently? Puh-leeze, most of Senator Clinton's supporters are working for her because they've paid attention for a long time. There are a great many more political neophytes in the Obama camp, which is part of why Clinton is losing. All of them have some catching up to do.
Oh, and now that you're paying attention to politics, commenter? How about some more political action from ya? You could even start with online feminist activism against stuff like this. The seeds of outrage have many verdant fields, my friend:
