There have been so many takes on Hillary Clinton’s use of a secret home-based server rather than an official government address to send (and delete) emails, it takes something really unique to break through the noise and make us reconsider the whole mess.

Here’s a theory from Garance Franke-Ruta, Washington editor of Yahoo! News, that really made us stop and sort of think — about clearing off our desks and slamming our heads against them repeatedly until unconcious.

So, maybe Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deletion of some 30,000 emails at her own discretion is just her way of saying she’s not afraid to break the rules, and what greater rule is there to break than becoming the first female president? Breaking glass ceilings is her business.


Setting up your own secret email server in your home is pretty badass, not to mention cool. For a woman, that is.
