NH Says No to Misogyny

TPM received a letter from a New Hampshire voter that I think probably explains very well Hillary's win yesterday. {She overwhelmingly won the woman vote.}

....Mix that in with the subtle media digs at Clinton's gender in recent months (descrptions of what she's wearing, how she "emasculates" men, etc.), and I think you had a tremendous push back from women, and men, who are tired of the misogyny underlying this campaign. It swayed me toward Clinton the past few days, even as I cheered for an Obama coronation.
