I am not American, but have to say that I am watching the election battles with great interest. Here is an article by Robin Morgan about the underlining sexism in this campaign.

A quote:
 Quote:
When a sexist idiot screamed “Iron my shirt!” at HRC, it was considered amusing; if a racist idiot shouted “Shine my shoes!” at BO, it would’ve inspired hours of airtime and pages of newsprint analyzing our national dishonor.

Bumping up this thread to share this article about Josephine Tey (a.k.a. Elizabeth Mackintosh), author of The Daughter of Time - a topical post, given the rediscovery of the remains of Richard III last week.
