Camille Paglia on Hillary

Why women shouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton

Whatever her official feminist credo, Hillary’s public career has glaringly been a subset to her husband’s success. Despite her reputation for brilliance, she failed the Washington, DC bar exam. Thus her migration to Little Rock was not simply a selfless drama for love; she was fleeing the capital where she had hoped to make her mark.

In Little Rock, every role that Hillary played was obtained via her husband’s influence – from her position at the Rose Law Firm to her seat on the board of Wal-Mart to her advocacy for public education reform. In a pattern that would continue after Bill became president, Hillary would draw attention by expressing public “concern” for a problem, without ever being able to organise a programme for reform.

Every time I look more closely at a feminist heroine, she always turns out to have slept her way to the top and to be utterly lacking in ability. When you learn about a woman who actually has accomplishments in her own right, she’s always either an antifeminist Christian (like Phyllis Schafly) or a lesbian.
