    on the other hand, I think female politicians are often held to lower standards than male counterparts.

    Probably not. If you start attacking those men.. bigger more powerful men in DC, you put yourself at risk as a politician. Those guys have sway and access to the media, and they have big ass, rich supporters and donors who want them to stay in office. The lobbyist would defend them. The right wing media would defend them. The spineless liberal media would debate the topic.

    Really... you don't think Fox News would do their job in propping up any of those men in a sexual harassment scandal... ****ing please. Rush Limbaugh would go the hell off calling these women liars and sluts. He would demand to know what they were wearing, because they were probably begging for the guys to compliment and smack their asses. Megan Kelly and Misha Brzezinski would suspiciously criticize all the women making the allegations. The 24 hour news media spin would make it a debate issue, not congratulate these women for their bravery and courage.

    She won't name names because the men she refers to are members of her own caucus. If the guilty parties were Lindsay Graham, John McCain and Mitch McConnell, she'd be on the rooftops telling everyone.

    What would do if she named names? Would you demand those men loose their position of power? Would you call them perverts? What would you do and how would you react if you knew which members of the old boys club were busy sexually harassing their female counterparts?

    Yeah, she should name names, after all..look how well Anita Hill was supported when she did so.

    Nancy Pelosi did all right as did Barbara Boxer. Michelle Bachmann never offered excuses. It's no place for the thin-skinned of any sex, race or color.

    It's all part of the Democrat's "War On Men"!

    Hill was treated very well. It was Clarence Thomas who suffered the indignities.

    By the way, maybe you didn't read the OP or the headline that I posted. It wasn't about her answer "yes". It was what I have said repeatedly. She says she's treated differently, but won't say how.
    She answered a direct question. Pretty ingenious political ploy to answer 'Yes' to a direct question!

    And I'm not sure why anyone needs to respond to a headline and a flack's take on it, when what she actually said was just a couple dozen words.
