C’mon Dave……. Clinton was probably the most qualified person we’ve had run for president in 100 years. She was no more or less corrupt than any other politician. People vote what they imagine their self-interest is and given the way that Trump openly talks about women, no woman should have voted for him. But maintaining place in the dominance hierarchy wins out over being respected if women have to make a choice between the two. That’s the entire point of this piece. That’s the way the hierarchy has been maintained these past 10K years.

LBJ in 1960: “If you can convince the lowest white man that he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket.”
