I'm interested to hear the case (to the extent there is one) of intelligent feminists who think HRC is getting a raw deal ...
Please, no. HRC is not a good focal point for such a conversation. You'd never be able to separate sexism from the myriad of other reasons to dislike her; e.g., political stances (or lack thereof), scorched earth campaign tactics, and the reality that she just doesn't come of as a likable human being on camera or the big stage. None of these have anything to do with her gender, but anyone who wanted to argue that sexism was at play would be unable to accept that.

Actually, now that I think about it, Rachel Sklar had quite a bit to say about this issue, in her first appearance, IIRC.
