An article in NY Times yesterday, As Hillary Clinton Sweeps States, One Group Resists: White Men, explained why she is only getting 40% of the white male vote, even among Democrats.
Surprisingly, the article didn't demonize white males, but simply listed the reasons why they might not support her: her approval of the various trade pacts, her handling of Benghazi, her support for stricter gun control laws, her Wall Street ties, her pro-immigration stance, and her seemingly exclusive focus on minorities during the primaries.
All of which are true.
But they're also a little beside the point. The real reason Hillary doesn't entice white males is because -- as others have pointed out before me -- she reminds a lot of them of their ex-wife.
But why, exactly?
Could it be that she comes across like a shrill harridan who was a constant nag?
Who had a terrible temper, and would become enraged at you for things she herself regularly did?
Who talked feminism all the time, even though you were the breadwinner. But who was more than happy to take half your money in the divorce, and acted as if she had been the one to earn it?
Who basically hated men, and always stuck up for women over men, no matter the situation, but then accused you of sexism?
Who "discovered" late in life that, sexually, she preferred women to men? (In fact, she always preferred women, but just wouldn't admit it to herself, and you paid the price with a sexless marriage.)
The one who had a public personality completely different from her private persona?
The one who would lie all the time, to the point where you couldn't even tell if she believed her own lies?
Never figured I'd feel sorry for Bill Clinton, but I almost do.
