On Hillary Clinton's assumed nomination

Should Hillary be the Democratic Party's nominee at the convention (and she still does not have the required pledged delegates to push her past the mark; she has 2203 and the benchmark is 2383), it will be a great leap forward for women in the same way Barack's nomination was a great leap forward for black people.  

To gauge just how much that might be, ask yourself this: how much better off today are Afro-Americans compared to what they were 19 January 2009?  

A rising tide powered by the personal ambition of a single individual does not lift all ships.
