Glass ceilings

Here's a line from Hillary's concession speech:

Although we weren’t able to shatter that hardest, highest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you it’s got about 18 million cracks in it.

Huh? Black people don't bump into the glass ceiling? If she's going to count all the votes she received as cracks in the glass ceiling, shouldn't she also count all the votes Obama received? The line should have read "36 million cracks", and "we still have a chance to crack it".

And now in post-speech interviews, Terry McCauliffe is going on and on about her 18 million votes cracking the glass ceiling. Sigh.
