Last night was a night for broken glass ceilings – albeit, not the glass ceiling that many liberal pundits were expecting to be broken.
For the first time in history, a successful presidential campaign was managed by a woman.
While Kellyanne Conway was admittedly the third campaign manager on Donald Trump's staff, her hard work undoubtedly helped paved the way to last night's results.
Take a bow, @KellyannePolls. First woman to run a successful presidential campaign in U.S. history.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) November 9, 2016
Now, that’s not to say that female presidential campaign managers haven’t come close before. Michael Dukakis’ presidential campaign was run by female manager Susan Estrich, yet he was famously beaten 53-46 by George H. W. Bush in 1988.
More recently, Al Gore’s presidential campaign was run by Donna Brazile. And yes, that's the same Donna Brazile that currently chairs the Democratic National Committee and just got fired from CNN.
The 2016 presidential election was a historic night for now President-elect Trump, but thanks to the hard work of Kellyanne Conway, he wasn’t the only person to make history!
