"The Honesty Of Being A Woman"

Just being one? I was unaware that merely acquiring a gender imbued one with a moral virtue. But then I've never quite walked in the shoes of Ms Maya Angelou, have I?  I'm not quite sure what to say about this testimonial in favor of comrade-sister Clinton: "I know her as a woman." But if you think Senator Clinton is best known for her honesty and for being comfortable in her own skin, then Angelou's words will speak to you. If you're Christopher Hitchens and you watch this, you'll just throw up. I nearly did.
