Reyna on Hillary, Gender Loyalty

More from that Young Democrats meeting about women in politics…

Here’s panelist and City Council member Diana Reyna pondering the rectitude of voting for Hillary Clinton based the fact that she’s female:

“And then we would feel guilty because then, maybe, we want to vote for her because she is a woman,” she said. “I mean, how do you explain that? And do we want to accept being guilty, because she is a woman–and we go vote because we have partisan loyalties. Do we have female loyalty?


“At the end of the day, is it so bad to say we have gender loyalty? At the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves, ‘Is she the best person for the job?'”
