I'm really not sure I can stand a full year of squealing paeans to the fact that she's a woman. I'm kind of repulsed by the notion that I should support her policies just because their author comes with a set of ovaries attached. I will be glad, naturally, if she wins, to see that America has come far enough in the battle against sexism to elect a woman. But that's not a reason that I should vote for her. I will be even gladder, after all, when the fact that Hilary Clinton has two X chromosomes is seen as unremarkable enough to pass without comment.
