73. You know what it is?
Many women saw Hillary and Barack as vindicators. As redeemers. They saw them like justice embodied. A Nation that has mistreated and relegated women and blacks since its conception is finally close to giving one of those groups a true say in American politics and a remarkable moment in history.

It was that deep for many people. Hillary losing the primary, for many, is spiritually dissapointing. It's like a slap in the face to women. A remainder that barriers are still there. They can't see it objectively, because they see it from the perspective of the oppressed individual struggling for equality.

I can understand that. It's a very powerful feeling.
