VP pick Sarah Palin scored on a breakaway tonight (I’m sick of baseball analogies). I think the Dems far overplayed their hand leading up to her speech tonight, harping on her lack of experience. But a great speech won’t be enough to get her harshest critics on board; feminists who have spent their entire lives trying to get women in positions of power. Here’s Sally Quinn:
I would like to know what women think of Sarah Palin’s judgment in accepting the role as McCain’s running mate, knowing the pain and humiliation the publicity would cause her daughter, the boyfriend and the soon-to-be-born grandchild. (By the way, this is not about whether mothers should work. We answered that question a long time ago. Of course they should and most of them have to. This is about this particular woman with her particular family situation putting herself in a position to be the commander in chief of the most powerful country in the world.)
Just last week the nation celebrated the “18 million cracks” put in the glass ceiling by Hillary Clinton. A week later, it is the feminist movement working overtime to repair those cracks.
