The only major group supporting Hillary are white women baby boomers.  The rest of the electorate combined are giving Obama overwhelming support.  It is clear that white women over 50 are considering gender over race and character.  And white women make up the largest segment of our population so they cannot call themselves a minority.  Let's take a closer look.
The choice for the Presidency should be all about competence and character.  As M L King said: "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."  So what is going on with white older women?  Do they not understand that gender bias is racist? 
The argument given by these white elite women for their support of Hillary is primarily based upon their view that women have been oppressed by men for most of human history.  While this is true, African Americans have gone through at least as much if not more injustices.  The issue of choosing a President by a standard of previous injustices and suffering gives the electorate a "Queen For A Day" type choice.  "Queen For A Day" was an old quiz show that awarded major prizes to people who had the worst sob story as determined by an applause meter. 
The gender bias of white elite women supporting Hillary has bad racial overtones.  Those who support Hillary based upon gender are as wrong as those who vote against Obama based upon race.  And please do not rationalize this by claiming that blacks are making their choice based upon race.  You can blame that one on Bill Clinton who has shown himself to not be such a black President.  Until he opened his mouth, the majority of blacks were supporting Hillary.
