How Clinton Changed Gender Politics

E.J. Dionne: "What's obvious to everyone is that Hillary Clinton is the overwhelming Democratic favorite, if she decides to get in... The last time, she had to persuade the party. This time, the party wants to persuade her."

"Clinton's gender is certainly relevant to the desire of so many who want her nominated. She would, indeed, appeal to women of diverse political views who want to break the presidential glass ceiling. But support for Clinton has at least as much to do with hard-core calculations that she could win because of her wide experience, her likely strength among working-class voters and her sheer endurance in the face of tests that few other politicians have had to confront."
