Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Camille Pagllia Doesn't Like Hillary
When the feminist that other feminists love to hate doesn't like you, then who will? She even uses the term "feminazi".
"Hillary's willingness to tolerate Bill's compulsive philandering is a function of her general contempt for men. She distrusts them and feels morally superior to them. Following the pattern of her long-suffering mother, she thinks it is her mission to endure every insult and personal degradation for a higher cause -- which, unlike her self-sacrificing mother, she identifies with her near-messianic personal ambition."

Hillary's disdain for masculinity fits right into the classic feminazi package, which is why Hillary acts like Gloria Steinem on catnip."

She is backing Obama for the same reasons I find him attractive, not the least of which is that while, unlike Camille, I may actually like Hillary as a person, she is too polarizing and threatens to divide this country into an even deeper red / blue divide.
"...[Obama] is a rational, centered personality who speaks the language of idealism and national unity. Obama has served longer as an elected official than Hillary. He has had experience as a grass-roots activist, and he is also a highly educated lawyer who will be a quick learner in office. His international parentage and childhood, as well as his knowledge of both Christianity and Islam, would make him the right leader at the right time. And his wife Michelle is a powerhouse."
His oratorial skills are daunting, but I also like his ability to appear unflustered and diplomatic at all times. He has an even temperament and an ability to listen. He also has undeniable world wide appeal, and that's something the US could really use right now. Not another President who is viewed as a right wing Christian conservatist. There's a sure way to engender more fear and loathing in the Middle East.
