When reading this little blurb, I couldn’t help but chuckle at the subtle (and most likely unintentional) comparison:
Clinton’s campaign announced Tuesday that Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., will be co-chair of Clinton’s presidential bid. Mikulski, who joins former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack on Clinton’s campaign, is the first woman Democrat in the Senate to be elected in her own right, not as a relative of a male politician.
Unfortunately, we can’t say the same thing about the woman running for president!
