NBC’s Capitol Hill Correspondent Ali Vitali says our political system was not set up to elect a female president … but understanding the bias might help the nation finally cross that hurdle.
Vitali joined “TMZ Live” Friday … to talk about her upcoming book, “Electable: Why America Hasn’t Put a Woman in the White House … Yet,” and she’s very clear … a big reason why women haven’t inhabited the Oval is misogyny. Fact is … many countries have had female heads of state — Germany, Finland, England, Argentina, India, Israel, among others.
Ali says the Hillary Clinton is living proof women are viable candidates .. .but they seem to hit a wall when it actually comes to getting elected.
We ask about one woman in particular … Michelle Obama, who has said as clear as day she’s not interested in the job, but Ali has opinions.
And what if the first female president is a conservative Republican — would this be celebrated among women and men of a different political persuasion? Ali’s answer is interesting…
“Electable: Why America hasn’t Put A Woman In The White House…Yet” drops Tuesday.
