I come not to rebuke Hillary Clinton, who remains by far the most capable presidential candidate. I come bearing advice for her campaign.
Hillary, this is something you sorely need.
1. Understand that New Hampshire didn't owe you anything. "New Hampshire had been good for the Clintons," we kept hearing. Its primary saved Bill's hide in the 1992 presidential race. In 2008, it gave you a needed boost when the sisterhood, enraged at perceived sexist attacks, rushed to your defense.
But what did any of this have to do with 2016?
2. Women don't owe you anything, either. Which side was paying Gloria Steinem to disparage younger women who chose to vote for Bernie Sanders? She said they were chasing boys; can you imagine? And what prompted Madeleine Albright to say that women should vote to help other women as opposed to helping their country?
