  •  I'm not surprised at all. Women have a lot less (1+ / 0-)

    interest in anger and confrontation and more interest in thoughtfulness and cooperation.  After all, through most of our history, it's what we had going for us.  Obama governs in a manner that women find natural and effective.  I think it's a fine thing.

    •  We need more anger and confrontation now (0+ / 0-)

      Obama's strategy of appeasing big corporations isn't working too well for most Americans right now. If anything, it's damaging the Democratic Party.

      •  I agree that we should not be appeasing big (0+ / 0-)

        corporations or the military, for that matter, but I will never see anger as the most effective motivation for moving forward.   It clouds the reason. Thoughtfulness, a bit of detachment so one can step back and see the issues clearly, will move us forward more surely.  Most of our "leaders" do not have these qualities.  Obama does and it is to these qualities in him that those who want true and deep change should appeal.
