(Newser) – Now that Hillary Clinton has lost, Peggy Noonan writes in the Wall Street Journal, she’s busy tearing her party apart. Democrats "should be dancing in the streets" after the brutal campaign, but instead they’re holed up at DC bars, regarding the former first family with “depressed horror.” Hillary is sharpening every divisive tool in the shed, hiding behind her gender and insisting that white voters have chosen her.

Clinton is portraying herself as endlessly put upon, but the truth, Noonan says, is that “she’s no damsel, and she causes distress.” Is there anyone left who can make Hillary stop? When men try, they're called misogynists—and blacks are called traitors. One superdelegate says it’s up to prominent white women to tell Clinton that it's time to go.
