Hillary: Who’s more of an outsider than a woman?

Hillary Clinton says being a woman makes her a political outsider.

“I cannot imagine anyone would be more of an outsider than the first woman president, I mean, really, let’s think about that,” Clinton said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “I mean, all of these mothers and fathers bringing the placemats with all of the presidents, and they bring their daughters and say my daughter has a question for you, and the daughter says ‘How come there aren’t any girls on this placemat?’ ”

{mosads}Candidates who have never held elected office or are perceived as anti-establishment are faring well in 2016 presidential primaries.

Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina receive a majority of support in Republican primary polls.

On the Democratic side, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has surged in the polls due to his populist appeal.

Clinton, who has served in public office for over three decades, still maintained that her experience is still something that sets her apart from other candidates.

“Well, I know you’re asking, you mean people who have never been elected to anything, who have no political experience, who have never made any hard choices in the public domain,” she said. “Voters are going to have to decide that.”
