    Take a look at the way Barack Obama gets sliced and diced around here.

    We Democrats have a tendency to shoot ourselves in the foot.

      If misogyny was not part of the equation then we would have 51% women holding electived office.

      •  So... (0+ / 0-)

        the fact that 51% of all elected offices aren't occupied by females means misogyny is the reason? That's weird. Last I checked we've got two major political parties and one vote apiece. We do not have a parliament to which people are appointed on the basis of what percentage of the population their special interest (gender, race, whatever) comprises.

      •  We weren't discussing the voting public (0+ / 0-)

        we were discussing reactions on this site. The percentage of women office holders is not germane.
