Analysis: Clinton calm in hostage crisis

Is it just me? I guess so, because I've not seen this anywhere else.

First, of course she was calm because she wasn't one of the fucking hostages. Duh!

Second, doesn't everyone assume someone running for POTUS would handle a serious situation calmly?

Third, perhaps I'm reading more into this than is there, but it seems its implied a woman remained calm (unexpected) whereas a man would automatically.
When the hostages had been released and their alleged captor arrested, a regal-looking Hillary Rodham Clinton strolled out of her Washington home, the picture of calm in the face of crisis.

The image, broadcast just as the network news began, conveyed the message a thousand town hall meetings and campaign commercials strive for -- namely, that the Democratic presidential contender can face disorder in a most orderly manner.
