Inequality In Tears

Speaking of news...yesterday the radio broadcasters were giving Hillary the work-over. All because she got emotional during a conference. Now we have seen George Bush get emotional and the usual response to that was that he was showing a caring, human side. A woman in politics gets emotional and that segues to a discussion about whether or not we want a leader who doesn't seem tough. Talk about a double standard! Someone needs to explain to me why it is acceptable for the male leader of this country to show emotion but not a female political figure vying for the leadership.

  1. Really, it was "equality in tears" because those tears humanized Hillary and won her the equalizing vote in NH. She can only reap gains by continuing to open herself to the public.
