MSNBC Guest: Hillary Is ‘Judged as a Candidate Because She’s a Woman’

Founder of “Gender Avenger” and former Bill Bradley campaign manager Gina Glantz responded on MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” Saturday to Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton using her womanhood to connect with women Democrats to pull their votes, comparing it to the black vote with President Barack Obama.

“[Hillary] runs as a woman, because she is a woman. She is judged as a candidate because she is a woman. I think that you can’t be it unless you can see it. That was clearly part of what the motivation was around voters with Barack Obama and will be with Hillary Clinton. Young women might have the experience of seeing a woman president. I think that’s a motivating factor in voting, and older women, like me, we want to see one before we die.”
