Not because I seek out their articles, but because I'm sucked into them whenever I try to get email from account #x. So here's more insightful Hillaranalysis from the AP.
The gist? If Hillary had defined herself more as a woman and less as a presidential candidate - more an anomaly and less a contender - she would have won the democratic nomination. Oh, really? Because the demographic she missed was feminist women? Because those women weren't aware of the historical impact of this vote? Because they weren't aware that she is, in fact, female? If we're that stupid, we probably don't deserve to be in office. This also assumes that women vote based on gender and opportunity, rather than issues. I don't remember NOW sending spring bouquets to Phyllis Schlafly.

Love the reference to Phyllis Schlafly- no one remembers that unsung hero(ine.)
