From the February 16 edition of Fox News' Outnumbered:

ANDREA TANTAROS: Well, a group of women in the Senate are speaking out about Hillary Clinton and the sexist standard that they say she faces on the campaign trail. Maryland Democrat Barbara Mikulski told The Hill quote,  “many of we women feel that there is double-standard. What is being said about Hillary is what women heard for centuries. You're too loud, you're too aggressive, you're too pushy, why do you want the vote?”  The Hill also interviewed Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat, saying quote,  “I think women go through a magnifying glass that men do not. Look at [Donald] Trump, talk about braggadocio, talk about arrogance, talk about shouting, talk about demeaning, talk about insulting, it's all there.”  Is that a fair point, Kennedy that they're making, but does it apply, I would say, to Hillary Clinton in this context?

KENNEDY: It was a fair point in 1978, it really was. I think you're dealing with a postfeminist era. You know and I have to hand it to a lot of these women, a lot of these career politicians who have been at it for decades, it has been a slog for them. And they've had to break certain ceilings, but you know,  at some point it's no longer free to be you and me and we have to be living in the here and now. Running for president is tough. It probably is the most painful, brutal examination and thorough that one can subject themselves to, having said that, stop complaining about your gender. You know, a friend of mine who is female surgeon, says women have to work twice as hard for the half the credit and I think that makes you better person. If you're working that much harder to break through you're probably a better candidate. If you're sitting around and having your surrogates complain for you why on God's earth would anyone want to elect you for public office?
