I thought of this thread when I read this in a column today by Ellen Goodman.

As a recent Catalyst survey of corporate leaders said, women are "damned if they do and doomed if they don't" meet the expectations of gender stereotypes. Linguistics professor Deborah Tannen describes the fate of achieving women this way: "Our image of a politician, a leader, a manager, anyone in authority, is still at odds with our expectations of a woman. To the extent that a woman is feminine, she's seen as weak. To the extent that she puts it aside and is forceful, aggressive, and decisive, she's not seen as a good woman."

How ironic that some qualities some people admire in someone like GWB, well they just seem to be a huge problem if any woman possesses them-well at the very least any Democratic woman.

Ellen Goodman is spot on-sad, but true. You do raise an interesting question as well-if a Republican woman were running, how would people handle her should she be as tough as Hilary?

Honestly, I don't care if someone's male or female, Democrat or Republican, whatever, I'm not going to get on them simply for having a strong will. That trait alone isn't a bad thing to have (it's something I wish I had more of). It's what they do with that strong will that matters most to me.

As for your other post, by the way, MrsSpringsteen-rock on . Very well said.

Angela

I wonder how long after 2008 will it take before there's a minority that runs on the Repbublican ticket?

Please don't tell me you are basing your opinions on someone's physical appearance.

So you've just basically screwed your whole argument by this comment... basically you are saying that the only differences are physical.

That makes everything else you said just sexist tripe.

Congrats

You've back up what we've all known for years...

Nice try Einstein.

Even a family Dr will tell that men and women are wired differently emotionally.

And genetically speaking you're wired closer to a woman than most men.

good day.

Oh, I'd love to hear this...

Please do tell. With your vast knowledge in genetics tell me exactly what you meant by this.

Yes, a very interesting read from a man that never received a real PHD...

But it still doesn't prove shit...
