"Hillary. You Just Don't Get It"

Are you as sick of Hillary as I? We'll get used to her bloviating because she's going to be around for awhile longer. CNN had her being interviewed by one of Hill's lackeys, Christiane Amanpour, two days ago. It was the same old same old: I lost because of James Comey, the Russians, blah, blah, blah. The one excuse that always gets me is this one: I lot because men are afraid of having a women in office. I really don't know of too many men who would mind having a women in office were she qualified. Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, NO! Condoleeza Rice, YES.
Example: Hillary lost because she’s a woman?
She spent her entire campaign playing up the need to ‘break the glass ceiling’ by making her the first female president, as if somehow America is the only country that matters with regard to political gender equality.
The political glass ceiling was first smashed decades ago, in 1960 when Sirimavo Bandaranaike became first female Prime Minister of Ceylon. 
And it’s carried on being smashed ever since.
Indira Gandhi became first female Prime Minister of India in 1966;
Golda Meir became first female Prime Minister of Israel in 1969;
And in 1979, Margaret Thatcher became first female Prime Minister of Great Britain. 
Our current Prime Minister, Theresa May, is also a woman and she is very likely to win a landslide election victory in the UK’s general election on June 8.
In 2005, Angela Merkel became first female Chancellor of Germany and is still in office today.

To date, around the world there are 20 women leading their nations in the 21st Century.

Call me an old fuddy duddy but I suggest Hillary lost the election because people felt she was unstrustworthy, involved in the Clinton Foundation, had email servers that put her in the cross hairs. It's why Comey got involved. And finally, people disliked her vociferously.

From Heat Street:
Setting all that aside, however, it’s also worth reiterating that it was Hillary, not Comey, who initially set up a secret server to circumvent transparency, likely to hide favor-trading related to her foundation. It was Hillary, not Comey, who sent unsecured classified documents through that server, although she almost surely knew it was wrong. (The New York Times had pointed out chances are high that these documents were intercepted by foreign powers.) It was Hillary, not Comey, who was responsible for attempts to destroy all evidence related to that server. It was Hillary’s people, as Comey noted in his original congressional testimony, that had “cleaned their devices in such a way as to preclude complete forensic recovery.” And it was Hillary’s aide who failed to inform the FBI about classified emails on her computer.
