Just because the feminist=Clinton supporter camp pisses me off so much
Lionel Shriver makes the fantastic argument that Clinton's being elected would not be a win for feminism. History is about the narratives we construct between events, she says, and the overwhelming narrative that historians would tell about Clinton's election would be her having ridden into the oval office on Bill's coattails. While it would be a win to get a woman into the white house, it certainly wouldn't be enough of a win to justify voting for her above and beyond her politics.
