Australia: Gillard’s bizarre victim feminism: making Hillary President will make the Islamic State feel silly

Everything is gender to professional victim Julia Gillard, leading to a truly bizarre argument for the election of Hillary Clinton as US president:

We, the US, Australia, so many other countries are involved in this struggle with ISIS, the Islamic State so-called, and when you unpack it, what is it about?

…Hasn’t America learned the critical difference between a symbol and the reality of a chief executive? Barack Obama was elected as a symbol of racial healing and man of peace, who’d placate America’s allies in the Middle East.
