What do you make of this? An op-ed writer for the Washington Post makes the point that Hillary Clinton suffers a disadvantage on the campaign trail because “on top of everything else, [she] has to spend an hour and a half getting ready for each day’s campaigning”. And by getting ready, he means the getting yourself presentable part of getting ready – that part which, for most women, means doing your hair, putting on your makeup, deciding what to wear or, if you have someone else to pick outfits for you (as Hillary probably does), deciding if that person has made a reasonable choice.
Even John Edwards, the “Breck Girl” of presidential candidates, probably got away with half that amount of time.
This could be a point about which I actually have some sympathy for Hillary.
