Okay, what she actually said is that she can’t be part of the establishment, because she is a woman. Because by definition, women aren’t part of the establishment.
Shucks! No one told all those corporate folks who paid her $225,000 to hear her reminisce to them about how stressful it was to advise President Obama on whether he should approve the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound.

Also: Just wondering how many of you who watched the debate think Clinton’s hyper/filibuster performance tonight was appealing?
