How Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright Misplayed Clinton's Gender Card

If that leaves Democrats relying on voters being so put off by a Republican such as Mr Trump or Senator Ted Cruz, that would be a great gamble - and should question Mrs Clinton's suitability for the nomination to begin with.

Such comments leave EMILY's List President Stephanie Schriock scratching her head. Say what you will about Sanders' costly and fantastical policies, but he truly believes what he is advocating for.

Reeling from the revelations about Clinton's speaking fees from Goldman Sachs and other large financial institutions, her campaign has lashed out at Sanders with allegations of double standards, dishonesty and sexism.

Leading feminist Gloria Steinem suggested in an interview with talk show host Bill Maher on Friday that young women were backing Sanders just to meet men.

Then came a dazzling Barack Obama out of nowhere, sweeping away her dream of becoming the first woman president of the United States.

The "Blurred Lines" model and actress shared a picture with her 4.7 million Instagram followers. Sanders is expected to do well with millennials again in New Hampshire with some polls showing him with as much as 87 percent of millennial voters.

But if they have both of them, that means they can attack any target on Earth. The global condemnation began nearly immediately.

"I certainly don't think any individual woman is obligated to support, or even any individual female Democrat, is obligated to support Hillary Clinton", said Kristi Andersen, professor of political science at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and Cazenovia Town Board councilor.

According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC/Marist College poll of Democratic voters in New Hampshire last week, 64 per cent of women under the age of 45 supported Sanders, while only 35 per cent backed Clinton. Bernie Sanders, the quirky US senator from Vermont, was not on Clinton's radar.

EMILY's List has walked point for three decades on behalf of pro-choice Democratic women candidates and can take credit for big inroads in the U.S. Senate and House.

But now it's Clinton's rival Bernie Sanders who has the momentum going into Election Day. "So are you supporting Hillary because you want to be around women?" The sheet referred to two recent PolitiFact findings that ruled that that Sanders had produced an ad that falsely stated that he had been endorsed by local newspaper based in Nashua. "But you will never hear her say that he is the tool of Wall Street because of that", Clinton said, neglecting to mention that he was the president who signed that bill into law. The open-minded voters would have to shift to Clinton by more than a 2 to 1 margin for her to win the primary. "We can tell our story of how we climbed the ladder, and a lot of you younger women think it's done", she said.

And Bill Clinton isn't the only surrogate who's stepped up rhetoric in the closing days. In a dig at the "revolution" that Sanders, 74, often speaks of, she said the first female commander-in-chief would be a true revolution. But Steinem laughed it off, replying, "How well do you know me?" She added: "Let's go down a path where we can actually tell people what we will do".

Clinton traversed the state's snow-covered highways with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and daughter Chelsea Clinton in a push to maintain her edge in national polls and reassure the Democratic establishment backing her campaign.
