Hillary is Running as a Feminist

Below is the YouTube link to Hillary Clinton’s full speech to Planned Parenthood, larded with pro-women policy proposals and juicy take-downs of Donald Trump. She is running, not just as a woman, but as a feminist; a take-no-prisoners, bad-ass, unapologetic feminist. Donald Trump doesn’t like her feminism? Tough. Say it loud, she’s feminist and she’s proud. She’s going to win by not closeting her feminism.

And I notice that her demeanor in her speeches has, of late, been extremely effective. She is cool, calm, collected, rational, serious. She enunciates her words clearly and slowly, inviting audiences to really think about what she’s saying. It’s the perfect tone to place into contrast with Mr. Trump.
