Every day that I was a candidate for president, I knew that millions of people were counting on me and I couldn’t bear the idea of letting them down. But I did. I couldn’t get the job done, and I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life.
Hillary Clinton upon hearing the news that Michael “lock her up” Flynn (who said only guilty people ask for immunity) is willing to testify in exchange for immunity so, you know… He doesn’t get locked up.
When Clinton left the state department in 2013, her approval rating was so high, she was touted as the most popular politician in the country. Flash
forward to her presidential run in 2016, and it seemed almost taboo to
admit genuinely liking Hillary Clinton. Apparently, we’re fine with
powerful women as long they’re not asking for that power.
“Many academics have written about it. It’s a pretty simple but
unfortunate phenomenon. With men, success and ambition are correlated
with likability, so the more successful a man is, the more likable he
becomes! With a woman, guess what? It’s the exact opposite. So the more
successful and therefore ambitious a woman is, the less likable she
becomes. That’s the inverse correlation that lies at the heart of a lot
of the attacks and the misogyny.” - Hillary Clinton
