Hillary Clinton will almost certainly not be the Democratic nominee for president, and the end of her campaign is a relief for Marie Cocco in the Washington Post—but not for political reasons. The end of the Democratic primary, she writes, will also put to rest the sexist rhetoric of Clinton's opponents and the media, who have called her a "she-devil," "whore," and worse.
Farewell, then, to Citizens United Not Timid, the anti-Clinton group with the impolite acronym. Farewell to comparisons with "a scolding mother," a nutcracker, or Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. Above all, Cocco writes, farewell to the silence in the Democratic Party that tolerated the sexism directed at the Clinton campaign—a candidate who may have lost on her merits, but who exposed "the hatred of women that is accepted as a part of our culture."
