Are Feminists Being Let Down?

Are old school feminists being let down by the fact that so many young women of all races, education and social class levels are supporting and voting for Barack Obama? Or did Hillary Clinton just fail to connect with young women? Or have young women become so liberated that casting a vote for Hillary just because she is a woman is not even a consideration? Or is lending support or casting a vote for Barack Obama a new kind of feminism? What do you think?

There is nothing more feminist that a woman using her intellect and exercising her freedom of choice in the voting booth. Anyone who tells me differently is NOT a feminist, but someone immersed in identity politics.

I said the same to folks who wanted me to vote for Obama simply because he is black.

Clinton still has strong support among white women particularly among older white women so I don't see how she's being let down.

Gender doesn't trump race so the fact that women of color aren't voting for her in droves is hardly surprising.
