Hillary's "Female Moral Inferiority"

Here is Barbara Ehrenreich (Huffington) on the impact of Ms. Clinton's political tactics:

Hillary Clinton smashed the myth of innate female moral superiority in the
worst possible way -- by demonstrating female moral inferiority. We didn't
really need her racial innuendos and free-floating bellicosity to establish that
women aren't wimps. As a generation of young feminists realizes, the values once
thought to be uniquely and genetically female -- such as compassion and an
aversion to violence -- can be found in either sex, and sometimes it's a man who
best upholds them.

I can't add much to that.
