Hillary Clinton began her speech Tuesday night in the Brooklyn Navy Yard by asserting that those of us in attendance were gathered beneath not just a metaphorical but a literal glass ceiling.
It may be hard to see tonight, but we are all standing under a glass ceiling right now. But don’t worry, we’re not smashing this one. Thanks to you, we’ve reached a milestone. The first time in our nation’s history that a woman will be a major party nominee.
We all looked up, to an overhang of … mostly wood and metal. To be fair, there was a thin ribbon of windows. But Slate can report that Secretary Clinton began the biggest night of her life with a minor fib.
