Hillary Hubris

"Democratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton tried to backpedal Friday from comments she made in October suggesting Mississippi was a backward place for women's progress . . . The newspaper quoted the New York senator discussing Iowa and Mississippi being the only states that have never elected a woman governor or sent a woman to Congress." Story here.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, a.k.a. "Mrs. Bill Clinton" evidently does not believe being a stay at home mom, homemaker, and wife is quite as important as being elected to public office. Those are "backward" roles for women. I know I am close to wearing out the word "elitist" on this blog, but what other word better fits this woman?
