It comes from an anonymous source for the DailyMail, so take this with a grain of salt…
Speaking on the condition that she isn’t identified, she told Daily Mail Online that the party is in the tank for Clinton, and the women who run the organization decided it ‘early on.’
The committeewoman is supporting one of Hillary’s rivals for the Democratic nomination, and said she spoke freely because she believes the former Secretary of State is benefiting from unfair favoritism inside the party.
Clinton aims to be the first female to occupy the Oval Office, and ‘the party’s female leaders really want to make a woman the next president,’ the committeewoman said, rattling off a list of the women who she said are the ‘real power’ in the organization.
‘I haven’t heard anyone say we should make Hillary undergo a trial by fire,’ she added. ‘To the contrary, the women in charge seem eager, more and more, to have her skate into the general [election].’
‘I have nothing against women in politics,’ she underscored. ‘But it’s not healthy for the party if we get behind a woman because she’s a woman, and risk having her implode after she’s nominated because she isn’t tested enough now.’
…but would this be terribly surprising? For starters, the Left is constantly concerned with identity politics. You identify as a demographic before you identify as an American (assuming you want to identify as an American because we know they dislike the idea of America so much). Race, gender, sexuality, whatever it may be, the Democratic Party has this compulsion to put your demographic identity ahead of anything else. This, of course, would be why Hillary said that she is an outsider. Because she is a woman.
But, this isn’t obvious just because it’s identity politics. It’s obvious because this is how national parties work. This is the system that has been set up by the parties. This is why the Republicans got [mc_name name=’Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’M000303′ ] and Mitt Romney. We know the system is rigged against us, which in all honesty puts us ahead of the game.
Barack Obama in 2008 was the singularity. He wasn’t supposed to happen. Hillary Clinton was supposed to be the chosen one, and we would have had eight years of her instead of Obama. But, this first-term Senator from Illinois ran a campaign on happy words and rainbows and motivated the youth vote in a way that an old, white woman with a very familiar last name could not.
The Republicans have woken up to the fact that there is an Establishment that is not necessarily working in their best interests. The Democrats have been circling the wagons around their own for so long it’s obscuring the view of their own Establishment. I imagine, however, that Bernie Sanders could be the tipping point for their own realization.
