But the inability to drive herself around isn't the only thing that sets Mrs. Clinton apart from the 99+%. Americans do many things for themselves, every day, which Mrs. Clinton never experiences, and hasn't experienced for over two decades. The following list is just a very small sample of what most Americans have as a normal part of their lives:
Washing dishes, dusting, cooking a meal for one's family, raking up, doing laundry, mowing a lawn, getting gas in the car, shopping for food, waiting in line for anything -- at a checkout counter, getting tickets or entry to a movie, show, concert, or sporting event, at the motor vehicle bureau, etc.; waiting in a waiting room for a doctor, dentist, hairdresser, barber, etc.; being put on hold on the phone; going through the TSA point at an airport, sitting next to an un-vetted stranger in a theater, or on a bus, train, or plane; personally serving your guests snacks or drinks; cleaning up a spill, planting any sort of plant, and watering it; taking care of a pet; making your own reservations for anything, either online or by phone, etc., etc., etc. Mrs. Clinton never opens the door herself when getting into or out of her limousines. She certainly doesn't dye her own hair, or throw out the garbage, or separate her garbage and recycling. And she never rides in any of the top-selling 20 models of cars, since none of them are luxury sedans suitable for high-class chauffeuring. Mrs. Clinton has more in common with the Queen of England than with most Americans.
It should come as no surprise that Mrs. Clinton, who has been a New Yorker for 16 years, had no idea how to swipe her subway card when her staffers decided she should ride the subway as a "regular" New Yorker. She's about as familiar with the NY subway as the average New Yorker is with the Mars Rover. When you're part of the 0.01%, you don't ride subways with the hoi polloi. And when Mrs. Clinton made a campaign stop at Junior's Cheesecake in Brooklyn, she admired the cheesecake, and put on a good show of lusting after it, but never actually let any of it touch her lips. After all, any regular person can buy and eat a slice of cheesecake.
