Do you know what fucking kills me?  
Hearing Obots praise Hillary. I mean, I should be glad that she accepted this big important post and is rocking it and working for the country intelligently and with incredible integrity. I should be glad that these people are finally recognizing what she's worth.

Except I get the sneaking suspicion that they're only able to lay aside their ideas of her as shrill and abrasive and hawkish when they know she knows her place. Now that's she's been beaten down, now we can respect her fighting spirit, now that its not a threat.

I literally cannot read about her successes as SOS without crying. She could have been so much more. I fucking HATE humans.

Me too. It still burns my ass. They're so condescending. She was Evil Monster Lady before he got the nomination and now they're singing her praises? Ugh.

Same. I have a friend who talked about Hillary being this awful creature throughout the primaries and now she says Hillary is one of her biggest hereos. I want to punch her.

I could have written this myself. I agree with all you've said here.

LITTLE LADIES ARE ONLY WORTHWHILE WHEN THEY KNOW THEIR PLACE. YOU KNOW THIS.

In seriousness, though:

they're only able to lay aside their ideas of her as shrill and abrasive and hawkish when they know she knows her place. Now that's she's been beaten down, now we can respect her fighting spirit, now that its not a threat.

I don't think any Hillary-haters actually thought she was any of those things. I think they put those labels on "intelligence" and "confidence" and "competence" because acknowledging that she was those good things would've (a) admitted that the primary wasn't some Epic Struggle Between Aslan and the Bad Witch and (b) acknowledged that bitchez is actually people. And we can't have that.
