Power Women Breakfast Washington, DC: The Clinton campaign’s communications director didn’t think it would be “a big deal to elect the first woman president” – until they tried it

Democratic political veteran Jennifer Palmieri said Thursday that what she learned trying to elect the first female president as Hillary Clinton’s communications director in 2016 was that our political and social system is “broken.”

“I wanted her to be the first woman president, but she’s going to be the woman who showed us that it’s all broken,” Palmieri said at TheWrap’s Power Women Breakfast in Washington, D.C. “I feel like that was her mission, as heartbreaking and unfair as it is.”

She added: “I did not think it was going to be be hard or a big deal to elect the first woman president … I just did not appreciate how deep some of the perceptions that we have of women are.”
