The Bible has a character named "Barak" in the Book of Judges, Chapter 4, who holds a national leadership position. But because he vacillated, he lost his glory to a woman. Is that book timeless, or what?
Early in his campaign (military), you're led to believe he's going to lose it to one woman – Deborah – but in the end he loses it to another – Jael.
Earlier in Barack's campaign, many thought he was going to lose his glory to Hillary, but now it looks like he's going to lose it to Sarah.
