It's wrong to generalize that all Feminists salute Ms. Clinton.
But one thing that's totally lost on white males (part of their unexamined privilege) is what it feels like for Black citizens to SEE a Black man in the White House. For some women, seeing a WOMAN is enough. Unfortunately, largely as a result of centuries of asymmetric representation added to a media culture that's been conditioned by advertising's use of brand & packaging... a percentage of persons are satisfied just to see the OUTER image without placing enough emphasis on what it stands for: at essence.
There is a HUNGER on the part of groups that never had much power or influence to see "their" numbers rising into positions of significance. THAT is understandable.
Unfortunately, the elites who manipulate the masses (through religious lies told often, a rigged economy, a deceptive mass media, and the muscular power of all sorts of policing units) recognize that you CAN fool at least half of the people most of the time through SURFACE appearances. That explains the prominence of Hillary as TOKEN female and Obama as TOKEN Black citizen.
So long as these individuals retain their deference to Deep State powers... they get to enjoy great privileges. And they also sell-out those who presume that they will govern in ways that will reflect the diverse interests of a diverse nation.
WE have already seen how well that went with Obama.
But one must look to the tone of the times...
With all this emphasis on token leaders, behind the scenes, trade deals like TPP rob the public of ALL access and means of redress; and laws like NDAA and Patriot Act rob citizens of rights they don't even realize are under serious jeopardy; and economic systems rob people of fair wages and benefits and increasingly drive wealth to the top of an unsustainable pyramid.
The elites hope that by putting "minority" candidates front and center, all of the machinations going on behind the Great Curtain will go unnoticed. Then, with things like TPP and NDAA in place, God help those who dare to challenge their corporate masters.
