Katha Pollitt on Palin and Clinton

Nation columnist Katha Pollitt has a piece on Palin, Clinton and feminism in today's Chicago Tribune:

Finally, Palin completed the task Clinton began: Running in different parties across a single political season, they have normalized the idea of a woman in the White House. It is hard even to remember how iconoclastic Clinton was—how hard it was for her to negotiate femininity and ambition, to be warm but not weak, smart but not cold, attractive but not sexy, dynamic but not threatening.

It's an interesting one. Have a read.
