A friend I saw today is not ready to celebrate, because he doesn’t want to jinx it. I, however, am very much in a celebratory mood and wanted to mark the important occasion here.

Ezra Klein does a nice job reflecting on Hillary Clinton’s political savvy. While the following is not a new revelation, it is important to continue pointing out: the gendered nature of elections is stacked against women in so many ways, it is hard to appreciate. It is exhausting just to think about it, never mind come up against it day in and day out, year after year, and still manage to garner so much support. Bravo, Secretary Clinton!
In case anyone still needs clarification:
I'm seeing Bernie bros complain that Hillary folks only support her because she's a woman.— Ella Dawson (@brosandprose) June 8, 2016
Yes, AND her entire political career. #ImWithHer
The idea that HRC must be 100% perfect in order for her achievement to count as historic or laudable is a great metaphor for being a woman.— Chloe Angyal (@ChloeAngyal) June 7, 2016

I know CT readers like to comment so how about discussing VP possibilities? WaPo has put together a list. Thoughts?
(Perhaps not shockingly, some men took credit for the emoji illustration above soon after Laura Olin posted it.)
