They reasoned that it was a vicious attack on all women to insinuate that women would vote for Sarah Palin just because she was a woman. Blah blah blah.
However, there is THIS demonstrating that voters for Hillary Clinton are not making it easy for Barack Obama to win them over. In fact, according to this, Hillary voters "find Obama less likable, honest, experienced and inspiring than Democrats overall do, and have a better view of McCain. And while majorities of Clinton supporters say Obama shares their values and understands ordinary Americans, they're less likely to say so than Democrats overall."
In other news, former President Bill Clinton referred to Governor Palin as "hot." Luckily, Palin seems well-protected by the Secret Service enough to prevent any of Bill's Arkansas State Troopers from dragging her into a hotel room for the former president's pleasure.
Perhaps now we know the real reason why Hillary declined to appear with Palin at an anti-Iran event.
