As the Democratic standoff grinds to a close, the Washington Post takes a bracing look at one of the lessons of Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency. An excerpt from the piece, written by Marie Cocco:

"There are many reasons Clinton is losing the nomination contest, some having to do with her strategic mistakes, others with the groundswell for 'change.' But for all Clinton's political blemishes, the darker stain that has been exposed is the hatred of women that is accepted as a part of our culture."
