Credit to her gender

Of all of Hillary Clinton's qualifications, she's running on one for 2016 - being a woman.
Many other countries have already had female leaders.
How does she stack up?
At the time of those "historic votes" on a good half of that list, "gender" was not "a built-in advantage" but a built-in disadvantage that skilled and nimble female candidates had to be exceptional to overcome. If I follow Mr Espuelas correctly, he's saying that America is getting round to its "historic vote" so late that "gender" is now such an advantage that any old female candidate can be dragged across the finish line, no matter how shopworn, wooden, charmless, tin-eared and corrupt.
