i feel sad
granted I know precious little about US politics.
but I know a lot of women here wished to see a woman in the most powerful seat.
guess on our part there’s a deficiency of understanding of the debated issues.
and so our take is this:
she lost out
‘cos she is a woman
and women still live under glass ceiling in the US.
She lost out
‘cos she is a fighter
one hell of a fighter
and might prove to be the ‘only man in the cabinet’
as Smt. Indira Gandhi once did.
and so the muscle flexers of the party
opted for an unknown person
on the strength of a book
and charm of his silver tongue
and the popular appeal of reverse racism
was on their side
in their fight against having a woman call the shots.
of course these are just
the jottings of a woman
with just a superficial knowledge of Am politics.
but there are many such ill informed women like me here
who feel sad.
