Ayelet Reflects on Hillary Loss

After months of campaigning for Barack Obama, Ayelet Waldman says while she and Michael Chabon supported him, her mother ain’t so happy, according to the Huffington Post.

“My mother raised me to believe that I was capable of being whatever I wanted to be, but when it turned out that what I wanted to be, at one point, was a stay-at-home mom, she was horrified. I tried to explain that my decision was not a betrayal of everything she’d worked for, but rather an affirmation of it. It was a choice, and wasn’t that what she’d been fighting for? My right to choose?

“Now, though, as I watch Hillary Clinton’s struggle reach its disappointing end, I understand why my mother took my decision so personally. She had struggled to remake the world, had partially succeeded, and now here I was, refusing to finish the job.”
