Faced with a growing chorus to abandon the uphill battle against Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton is falling back on what she sees as her trump card - her gender.
At other perilous junctures like the eve of the New Hampshire primary and the eve of Super Tuesday, the former First Lady highlighted her femininity during televised tearful moments. Now she is portraying the calls for her to quit as male chauvinism.
In comments leaked to the New York Times, Mrs Clinton is said to have told aides that she would not be "bullied out" of the White House race and in a conversation with two allies compared her plight to "big boys" trying to bully a woman.
During a weekend interview with the Washington Post - arranged at her request - she was asked whether Mr Obama could beat John McCain, the Republican nominee.
She responded: "I'm saying I have a better chance. You cannot as a Democrat win the White House without a very big women's vote. What I believe is that women will turn out for me."
In the past 10 days, Senators Chris Dodd and Pat Leahy and Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico - all key Obama allies - have urged Mrs Clinton to abandon her presidential bid so her party can unite around the young Illinois senator.

Staying in the race is your thighness is .... well ... racist
Barack Obama portrays calls not to quit as racism.
The DemonRats have two candidates who are obsessed with themselves. One is race obsessed. The other, gender obsessed. Her husband was sex obsessed. They should call themselves Sickocrats.
Yep. This week’s it’s the “sexism” card.
I fully expect to see some more fake tears by the PA primary.
Well we know this weeks talking points because mama and Chelsea are telling the same lies. This beyotch is without shame. That’s why I bet $10 she’ll beat out Hussein
Wait...Calls for her to drop out are sexism, but then she says more women will vote for her?
Fight it out all the way through the convention. If you lose in the convention, fight it out in the courts. Don't let an uppity one term Senator cheat you out of your turn as President.
But it is time to stop pussy footing around. Pull out the big guns. Surely you've got some dirt on B.O. in those FBI files you took with you? If not, make some up. We know you can do it. Just think of B.O. as a bimbo eruption.
When she got in this race, she thought she would be the "beloved" of the party. There would be no nominee available EXCEPT her.
In her wildest dreams, she never dreamed a "Black man" with oratorical skills would step on stage.
All the other "men" were whimps...like Lazio...she would easily sweep them away....and she did.
ANd at this point, everyone knows she is NOT a team player but will lie, cheat, cry and mock at every turn.
Hey Hillary...Go iron your husbands shirts and a little reminder...YOUR MOTHER ironed your father's shirts.
Its not sexist because any fool can tell you that Hillery is not a woman. Hillery is a Wanna be Woman.
Its not racist because Obama is only a pretend Black man, who has achieved education and success in life, handed to him on a white mans platter. Obama is a Wannabee Black Man. His neocolonial politicking in Kenya proves it.
Pistols? I say Mac-10’s!
The Dims didn’t count on this, a showdown between two of their cherished “victim” groups, a showdown that could very well split their hallowed allegiance to identity politics.
Fun : as this will last into August.
If women (excuse me, womyn) vote for her thighness because she is a woman, that's perfectly o.k. Just like it is o.k. for blacks to vote for B.O. because he is black.
But if you criticize Hillary for any reason, you are a chauvinist. If you criticize B.O. for any reason, you are a racist.
I hope McCain is paying attention, because whichever one gets the democRat nomination, this will be the centerpiece of the democRat campaign.
If it wasn’t for the race card and the gender card, Hillary and Obama wouldn’t have any cards at all. The public figuring this out is what’s keeping Howard Dean up at night.
Just like when she tried to join the Marines after she graduated from Yale Law School - and the Marine ridiculed her for being a woman?
The sniper lie has put Hillary down for the count. That was just too much for any reasonable (sic) democrat-leaning person.
The embellishment and certainty of the liar’s account has to shake up anyone previously fooled into thinking there was any integrity there.
I mean The Rev. was bad enough for Obama, but Hillary’s blatantly audacious lie is her own personal lie. No one can say she not a liar without lying.
Blame to Obama, though justified, is vicarious.
It’s like those monster movies where everyone knows the guy’s dead except the guy himself. Guy = HRC.
But, at least she has a sense of Huma.
