I don't think she's getting votes just because of her gender. After all, it didn't help Geraldine before her. Hillary is simply the first woman to actually be a credible, worthy "Presidential" candidate. And the reality is, she comes off stronger, more experienced and fully capable of handling the role, particularly given the field of Dem contenders at the moment.

I don't know whether I'll see another prospective female Presidential candidate as strong as Hillary. And I also think this is the reason that the old, white guys tend to have issues with her. They just can't handle having the possibility that a woman could very well serve as our Chief Commander.

But make no mistake.. Hillary has earned her votes and support. (along with all the haters, who resent her being more than a "token" and unremarkable female candidate).
