Shorter Verbatim MoDo:

AFTER running as a man last time around, Hillary Clinton is now running as a woman.

Matthew Dowd, the former W. strategist who became an independent, says Hillary got it backward: She should have run as a woman in 2008, when she was beating back a feminized antiwar candidate. And she should have run as a man this time, when Americans feel beleaguered and scared and yearn for something “big and masculine and strong,” as Dowd put it.

Note: as a first approximation, every Maureen Dowd column between now and Election Day will make this argument, the fact that no self-respecting editor should have let it appear in a newspaper of any quality once notwithstanding.
