A very short post, for a change. I just want to give a shout-out to a wonderful piece this past weekend in Salon by Rebecca Traister.

As will not surprise anyone who has read my earlier animadversions, I don't entirely share Traister's critique of Clinton's behavior -- but that's a relatively minor cavil. What she does here (and has done often in the past) is to demonstrate a political-emotional intelligence sorely lacking in most pundits, and has captured the deeper impact and import of Hillary and her candidacy. Brava.
