WikiLeaks Lays Bare a Clinton Insider’s Emphatic Cheers and Jeers

… When news media reports began identifying potential members of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign team last year, Ms. Tanden warned of griping among Democrats about racial and gender balance among Mrs. Clinton’s staff picks. “I’m not the diversity police but there is grumbling on the 4 white boys running next presidential cycle,” she wrote in January 2015. “So I recommend rolling out some people who look like the rest of America soon!”

Obviously, Tanden intended “white boys” as a racist and sexist slur, and for self-interested reasons: Tanden is a South Asian woman.

But that’s okay, because “Who? Whom?” is all that really matters anymore.
