Transcript for Is It Sexist to Not Vote For a Woman?
It's a little rough. There's all kinds of crazy stuff going on. Bill Clinton is campaigning in New Hampshire for his wife Hillary and he's coming out hard against supporters of Bernie sanders. Take a look. She and other people who have gone online to defend Hillary and explain, just explain why they supported her, have been subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane, often, not to mention sexist, to repeat. Welcome to the life of a public figure. We get that all the time. Is he going to chop wood in that shirt or what? I mean, get some firewood, bill. Maybe if somebody else would have said this but to hear the word sexism come out of his mouth -- He should use the word mess only nis as opposed to sexist marks or sexist behavior. But mess onliny is something else. Maybe this is why Madeline Albright and Gloria steinem have been taking heat from the other side, for targeting women supporting Bernie sanders. Remind everyone what Gloria said, joy. Gloria was on the bill Maher show the other night and he remarked about how millennials are more in Bernie sanders' court which by the way he's on tomorrow. I almost called him sandy. He's my Bernie though. He says, how come. Gloria said, men tend to get more conservative because they gain power as they age. Women get more radical because they lose power as they age. Then she said something weird. When you're young you're thinking where are the boys. The boys are with Bernie. Implying that the girls are with Bernie because the boys are there. For one of the feminists of the 20th century to get caught with a remark like that, I think she was having fun with bill and making a joke and they've blown it out of proportion, Gloria steinem thinks that millennial women are stupid. I don't think she meant that and I'm a friend of hers so I'm defending her. Madeline Albright who was the first female secretary of state said there's a special place in hell for women who don't vote for Hillary -- That's not what she said. For helping other women. Carly is the other woman running so one could take it for -- She's not endorsed Carly. But she did not say Hillary. Right. My point is, one could look at it and say, well maybe she's right. Maybe as a republican woman I should be supporting Carly fiorina. Because she's a woman. Because she's a woman. I was very surprised though and I think millennials, young women, are very in tune with politics more so than I think many people are, but I am surprised that young women aren't supporting Hillary because she is -- Are or are not? Are not. She's struggling with that base and it's shocking to me because the bottom line is not only is she a woman, symbols matter, breaking barriers matter, and she is the most qualified women to ever get this close to the president S president. But voting for anybody based on their genitalia is wrong and insulting to women. Why are we the only country that hasn't had a female leader? Hold on, hold on. We will come back to this. We'll be right back. Announcer: Snack time, but hurry back because they're taking a ton more topics, next.

Hey, you say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. But I believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place and look to the American horizon. To a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. Where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. Where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. Where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. An America where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. A nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. I know we can create that America
