Nicolle Wallace, Journalist, Author, Anchor, and Chief Political Analyst for MSNBC and NBC News.
"After 2008, I just thought that the treatment of Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton was so startling and stunning. I wanted to play with the idea of the unique indignities that females — not just politicians — are subjected to in the public light. I think that they are as different as any two politicians [can be], but I think that they both were subjected to more analysis of their appearance, more analysis of their likability, more analysis of their capabilities, more analysis of their records as mothers and wives. I only worked for men before I worked for Sarah Palin. I’d never fielded any questions along any of those lines for any men.”
"I just feel like I had extraordinary opportunities, and I still feel that way, and I feel really fortunate for every one. I would never sort of divide myself up into successes and challenges. I think that it’s just all been a surprise.”
