Reuters takes a look today at feminists' feelings about the possibility of electing Hillary Clinton to the White House. Here's a shocking revelation: Feminists, it turns out, aren't interested in choosing a candidate based on his or her gender. They're also not uniformly convinced that there aren't serious pitfalls to electing a woman as president. Says Lisa Jervis, co-founder of Bitch magazine:

"It's ultimately a trap. Women who do nothing to enact feminist policies will be elected and backlash will flourish. I can hear the refrain now: 'They've finally gotten a woman in the White House, so why are feminists still whining about equal pay?'"
