Is This Statement by Barack Obama Terribly Sexist?

More than one person has told me that the following statement made by Barack Obama last night qualifies as “terribly sexist”:

The road here has been long, and that is partly because we’ve traveled it with one of the most formidable candidates to ever run for this office. In her thirty-five years of public service, [...]

What has Barack Obama Done That Was Terribly Sexist?

“I think Obama was terribly sexist.” – Geraldine Ferraro, prominent Hillary Clinton supporter.
