They never quote these types of articles: The Fight Stuff

...If anyone has been guarding the rules this election, it’s been the press, which has been primly thumbing the pages of Queensberry and scolding her [Hillary] for being “ruthless” and “nasty,” a “brawler” who fights “dirty.”
But while the commentators have been tut-tutting, Senator Clinton has been converting white males, assuring them that she’s come into their tavern not to smash the bottles, but to join the brawl.
Deep in the American grain, particularly in the grain of white male working-class voters, that is the more trusted archetype.

Whether Senator Clinton’s pugilism has elevated the current race for the nomination is debatable. But the strategy has certainly remade the political world for future female politicians, who may now cast off the assumption that
when the going gets tough, the tough girl will resort to unilateral rectitude.
When a woman does ascend through the glass ceiling into the White House, it will be, in part, because of the race of 2008, when Hillary Clinton broke through the glass floor and got down with the boys.

Susan Faludi is the author of “Backlash,” “Stiffed” and “The Terror Dream: Fear and Fantasy in Post-9/11 America.”

Greenconsciousness notes: No Susan, it is NOT "particularly in the grain of white male working class voters" that the tough fighter is admired. Almost all people who have had tough times admire someone who does not give up when times get tough.

This is the ethic of our best people, the soldiers, protectors, the people you can rely on - the heroes. Hillary has not been "brawling". She has been conducting a skilled, tough, political campaign which has revealed her character as being solid gold - admirable.

That is why she has won the respect of almost everyone except the BO cultists. I saw a AA man who voted for BO say he wished he could have voted for both of them ..."because that Hillary, she's a sweetheart."
