This gives me no thrill. I think she'll be a terrible downgrade on the incumbent and he's been no prize either.
But what's wrong with Hillary Clinton has nothing to do with the fact that she is a visibly aging woman of almost 67. She's earned her wrinkles for goodness sake. I could even wish she were more proud of them. But in any case, a face that she shows some wear and tear strikes me as a qualification for high office, not a cause for censure or ridicule.
The media doesn't play it this way. For over a year I've been collecting images of Hillary that various media outfits choose to emphasize. Do these scare you adequately?
There we have it: the wrinkled bitch and the censorious scold.
The preponderance of these ugly images is not because they are the only ones available.
Hillary could be portrayed as the honorable, experienced public servant.
Over the next few years, I think we owe it to all older women to attend carefully to the pictures the media uses of this annoying candidate and call them out when they are meant to demean her age and experience.
