    But Rosen is right...if your indicator on what policies are important to women is based on things your wife said...she represents a very very very small sliver of what most women deal with. It's a fact. Just like Mitt Romney almost has no inkling of what most Americans go through daily or in life.
    Those who are running for President have very rarely have the complete inkling of what most Americans do in daily life.

    This election cycle will be pure joy. Class warfare, race warfare, sexism, attacking stay at home mothers, the 'war against women'...

    Well...at least we dont have massive debt, unemployment, lingering terrorism, a war in Afghanistan, a continuing housing crisis, or anything important to talk about.

    This is a great point. I sincerly doubt that very many politicians, or their wives have struggled through what most of us have.

    Well, personally, again, I prefer a woman who is going to be professionally-inclined rather than stay-at-home mother, but I am perfectly fine with both. There is something that is gained and lost with each preference. That is why I also do not register with this new form of class complaint coming from critics. What the classes have complained about has changed, is all. The complaint remains the same: they do not get us.

    If anything we have become much more democratic than we are letting ourselves believe. The rich and powerful retain riches and power, but the amount of "regular" people who have risen to moderate posts in government and organization has increased dramatically. Yet, it is as if the historical register is not there. People can flip the switch and rant against the rich being leaders, and then flip the switch once more and idolize numerous Presidents and their administrations from the past without seeing a difficulty.

    I'm sorry but the Reagans/Obama's/Clintons are different than the Bush's and Romneys of the world. Yes almost all Presidents are pretty wealthy when they step into office but that's not the eqivilent of being born and raised in massive wealth.

    I think pointing out that either Democrats or Republicans are hypocrites is pretty much like stating the obvious "The sun is bright".

    Both sides have proven themselves to be hypocritical on certain issues and situations. So what is the point of you stating the obvious again?

    Do you have any proof that the sun is bright? I demand links!

    And yet many of our esteemed Presidents and party nominees came from such wealthy and/or governmentally-elite circles since childhood. You aren't exactly going to see many rant about the Roosevelts and the Kennedys, are you?
