Material girl-turned-children's book author Madonna has gotten behind Hillary Clinton's presidential bid, touting Mrs. Clinton for the White House and while warning at the same time that sexism might undermine her campaign."You've got to start somewhere"--not exactly a ringing endorsement!
"Hillary Clinton should go for it, definitely," the evolving pop queen tells ContactMusic.com. "You've got to start somewhere in terms of women leading the US."
The "Like a Virgin" star complained: "In Europe and Asia and elsewhere, women have ruled over millions."Hillary, or course, derives her stature from her famous husband. Isn't that a bit patriarchal?
Madonna blamed sexism for blocking women from the nation's highest office, saying, "In America, men are still afraid of women. And women, I don't think, trust women. I find that amazing."
