The majority of voters (women) respect the wife for getting through it the best way she could.

The majority of voters (women) don't want a female presidential candidate attacked for something her husband did almost 20 years ago that has nothing to do with her credentials, track record, ability, and yes, ambition.

The majority of voters (guess who?) know that if a man says he wants to win on his own terms he's tough and dedicated, but if a woman says it she's ruthless and bitchy.

Guess why the majority of voters (you guessed right) think your party is waging a war on women.
