Hillary Clinton and the Gender Card

Hillary is being accused of playing the "gender card" by making comments like:

"Yes, finally fathers will be able to say to their daughters, you too can grow up to be president."

Yet is was completely fine for previous presidents to comment on the exact same thing:

"Certainly in the next 50 years we shall see a woman president, perhaps sooner than you think. A woman can and should be able to do any political job that a man can do." (Nixon) 

So is the real message here that the only politicians allowed to play the (female) gender card, are men?
