“There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”
This statement made by former Secretary of State Madeline Albright is a prime example of identity politics being employed by Hillary Clinton. I recalled this statement after reading this blog post.
Will women respond and vote for Hillary just because she would be the first woman President and no other reason? With the mounting evidence of her being proven a liar, plus the Wikileaks information proving her ties to special foreign and domestic interests for big money donations, I wonder why would women want to identify with her at all?
Also, perhaps, based the accusations which she will not respond to other than to accuse Trump of being supported by Russia, that after her term expires, there may never be another woman elected.
Frankly, I would think that Russia would want to support Hillary instead of because she approved the sale of twenty percent of the USA mining of uranium to Russia. Perhaps Russia, if they are indeed the source, may be upset for some other reason we also do not know about?
I recommend you read Citizen Tom’s blog about how identity politics serves to separate our nation instead of resolving the issues which now are dividing us.
In my opinion, I wonder if woman who do not vote for Hillary because they do not want to identify with her will instead have a special place in heaven.
Regards and goodwill blogging.

Her campaign has gone so far as to suggest that Sanders’ pledge to make public universities tuition-free is racist because it…
