It has become customary in our society to blame somebody else whenever anything goes wrong in our lives. We never want to say it's our own fault; or, even if not our fault, we rarely put as much energy into working hard to do better in the future, as we do into assigning blame.
Hillary's new book on her failed campaign, called "What Happened", blames everybody and everything but herself for running such a dismal campaign. It is the fault of the misogyny of the voters. It is the fault of Bernie Sanders running against her in the primaries. It is the fault of ..., well, you get the point.
The fact is that Hillary was a horrible candidate, and ran a horrible campaign. She was stiff, stilted, dull, boring, robotic, unspontaneous,
uninspiring, lacking in passion, uncomfortable in her own skin, and
unable to think on her feet. Some, like the infamous Stephanie Krehbiel, call this sort of criticism misogyny. I think people like Stephanie Krehbiel need to get off their high horse and realize that equality means being judged by the same standards that everyone else is judged by.
