    Same end result though, cherry picking, partisan garbage is what is being spewed. Sorry to shine light into the dark.

    6 of one, half dozen of the other. You can't expect to call on her race and gender to bolster her qualifications without expecting a rebuttal to race and gender.

    The fact that my contribution to the debate doesn't matter because it disagrees with the guys in power.

    I dunno. If she is qualified, her gender/race is irrelevant. If she is not, her gender/race are irrelevant.

    if there are 10 qualified candidates all equal, and diversity is a goal, then promoting the one who best increases diversity is fine, but she is still qualified.
