At a recent campaign rally in Pennsylvania, former President Bill Clinton mocked the support Donald Trump has in coal country. We all know how opponents do real well down in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky, because coal people dont like any of the US anymore. They all voted for me. I won twice, and they did well. And they blame the President when the sun doesnt come up in the morning now, say Clinton. Hillary repeated these sentiments at a recent fundraiser in New York City where she grossly generalize Trump supporters, alleging half of them belong to a basket of deplorables. Coal mining country in the United States has been in devastating decline over the past several decades. And as the coal industry has decline, so have economic prospects in these regions of Kentucky, West Virginia, and Southern Ohio, while the plight of people who live there is ignored by politicians and the media. Clinton's abrasive attitude toward these working-class people is one reason they do support politicians like Hillary. She tells them to deal with the inevitable death of coal in the face of threats posed by climate change, while offering no assistance or alternatives to revitalize their faltering communities. Bill Clinton argued that the economy prospered under his Administration in the 1990s, but that prosperity didnt reach many parts of the country. I think the model is something like Clinton, whoin factmostly just riding on a successful economy, that was successful mostly for reasons that had nothing much to do with him, said New York Times columnist and avid Clinton supporter Paul Krugman in a 2011 interview on ABC this Week. Under the Clinton Administration, wages for everyday Americans remain stagnant, and wealth and income inequality continue to increase. Even after the 2008 economic recession, majority of recovery has benefited the Americas top one percent of working and middle class Americans. Like her husband's presidency, Hillary Clinton's candidacy offers an embrace of increasing power held by corporations and the wealthy. Trump, however boorish his commentary and extremist his policies, offers an alternative to the encroaching power of the oligarchy. The American working class has been betrayed repeatedly by the elitist class. Trump is offering an opportunity to disobey popular consensus for Clinton's candidacy among the rich and powerful. The job of public servant is to try to understand the plight of their constituency. You cant lead or have the best interest of the public if you dont understand issues they face. In addition to the decline of the coal industry, five million manufacturing jobs have leave US since 2000. For Bill and Hillary Clinton, it was easy to make fun of people they did understand, but the gall of their mockeryand propensity for politicians like themselves to favor the interests and influences of donorsis what produced Trump and his supporters. To my folks and many people across the country, what has been happening to them is not only heartbreakingits, humiliating. And like love affairs go bad, it messy and ugly.

7, Hillary Clinton becomes the first woman in US history to become the presumptive nominee for a major political party. Tonight's victory is not about one person, she declare. It belongs to generations of women and men who struggle and sacrifice and make this moment possible. The Clinton life is a story of female exceptionalismand exclusion. As a child, she wanted to be an astronaut and write to NASA for advice. They write her back: We do not accept girls. At 18, she attended Wellesley, all-womens School, at TIME when the Ivy League was restricted to men. At 22, she decided to become a lawyerat TIME when less than 5 % of lawyers or judges were womenand was admitted to Yale Law School, where she was one of only 27 women in a Class of 235. Hillary entered professional life in the 1970s, era where women could not legally get credit card, keep their job if they were pregnant, or report sexual harassment. When her husband Bill Clinton ran for governor, under political pressure, Hillary changed her last name from Rodham to Clinton. And yet, when Bill ran for President in 1992, TIME magazine ran a cover story called Hillary Factor, questioning whether her education, intelligence, and ambition hurt her husband. When the Clintons attempt to spin the narrative by emphasizing Hillary's motherhood, TIME calls her yuppie over-doting on her daughter. Thus begins 24-Year National neurosis over Hillary Clinton and the role of well-educate, ambitious women in American societyone that seemed to finally cede in her favor last week. Social media light up with posts from excited parents telling their daughters that, they, too, can be President someday. Like all women of her generation, Hillary faces formidable sexism, fighting for rights women now take for grant. But like many women of her generation, she also benefited from being born in an era when upward mobility was arguably more feasible, at least economically. Though now multi-millionaires, Clintons come from relatively modest beginnings. Bill grew up in poverty in Arkansas, while Hillary grew up in an Illinois family that only reached Middle Class stability in the mid-20 century. The Clinton rise to power was not buoyed by inherited wealth, but by a system that allowed lower and middle-class Baby boomers increasing access to higher education and prestigious jobs. But contemporary versions of Bill and Hillary Clintontalented Middle-Class or lower-Class students from the Midwest or Southmay find that achieving the same success will be stymie by their familys class status or their geographical distance from centers of power. The prototype for future Hillary is someone who grows up more like Chelsea Clintonwealthy, connect, and able to pursue multiple advanced degrees. While gender barriers have eased over the past forty years, economic barriers have tighten. Older generations of women have diversified once closed fields: female lawyers are now common, number of female politicians is still disproportionately low but has been slowly rising, and we have our first female presidential nominee.
