End of the road

It appears Senator Clinton will officially leave the campaign trail Saturday.

It was a hell of a run. Despite the rampant sexism, both overt and subtle, she did better than I would have thought any woman could today. Her campaign was flawed in many ways, but she did the soul-crushingly hard work of breaking down barriers for other women and, whatever our feelings for her personally, we should all recognize that work.

For the next woman, it will be easier.
