I keep watching these things so you don't have to. I wish someone else would watch them for me. I went into this election season a comparatively young woman, spry and filled with hope, and now I am a crippled and elderly crone typing this with one hand and shouting for metamucil.
Here, however, is what transpired Thursday evening:
Gwen Ifill: Hello and welcome to the Democratic debate, on PBS. First, because this is a good use of everyone's time: Hillary Clinton, why don't women like you?
Clinton: I think it is less that women don't like me, Gwen, and more that people don't like me. And, again, if I knew what was causing this, you bet your life it would not be the case any longer.
Judy Woodruff: Senator Clinton, is it true that women will go to hell if they don't support you?
Clinton: For the last time, no, of course not. I would never put another woman through what I am going through right now.
