Hillary Clinton: Cersei Lannister or Sansa Stark?

I’m going with Sansa. Hillary seems to me like an initially idealistic person who has been beaten up repeatedly and who has been learning to play The Game of Thrones the hard way. She’s finally figuring out who to trust and understanding her own strength.

Unsurprisingly, this professor guy thinks she’s like Cersei Lannister, that scheming, entitled, political bull in a China shop. He thinks Hillary has a lot in common with Cersei because she’s constantly overlooked by her family because she’s female. But the trauma inflicted on Sansa for being female is no less significant.

Except that Sansa appears to be learning from her mistakes and Cersei doesn’t seem to think she has to learn anything.

There are some GoT fanatics who think Sansa will end up ruling everything.

Time will tell.

Funny that the writer of that article would choose to compare Hillary to one of the least likeable, deceitful, incestuous, and politically inept characters in the series.

Funny, but not surprising. Lefty academic guys are so predictable. And beginning to bore me.
