Question of the Day
Woman vs. woman
“I think one of the things that make me so completely comfortable with [supporting her husband over a woman] is that keeping that door open to women is actually more a policy of John’s than Hillary’s,” Mrs. Edwards said in an interview posted yesterday at Salon.com.
Mrs. Edwards added: “On the issues that are important to women, she has not … well, health care, that’s enormously important to women, all the polls say, and what she says now is, we’re going to have a national conversation about health care. And then she describes some cost-saving things, which John also supports, but she acts like that’s going to make health care affordable to everyone. And she knows it won’t.
“She’s not really talking about poverty, when the face of poverty is a woman’s face, often a single mother. …
“Look, I’m sympathetic, because when I worked as a lawyer, I was the only woman in these rooms, too, and you want to reassure them you’re as good as a man. And sometimes you feel you have to behave as a man and not talk about women’s issues. I’m sympathetic — she wants to be commander in chief. But she’s just not as vocal a women’s advocate as I want to see. John is.”
Still stung by accusations of flip-flopping in the 2004 presidential race, Sen. John Kerry on Monday accused former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romneyof being the real chameleon of presidential politics and jabbed Mr. Romney with the same taunts that helped sink his own 2004 White House bid, the Boston Herald reports.
“Let’s be very clear. I had not changed my positions, and they played a game with that,” Mr. Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat, said of his Republican critics in the 2004 race.
By contrast, he said, Mr. Romney is far more deserving of the flip-flopper label. “He’s changed on abortion, he’s changed on gay rights, and he’s changed on marriage,” Mr. Kerry said. “He’s changed on guns, and he’s changed on the war. That’s pretty significant. I think people are asking the question out there, ‘Who is he, really?’ ”
“This is a textbook case of Freudian projection,” Eric Fehrnstrom said. “John Kerry is projecting his own undesirable traits onto other people. It’s a mild form of personality disorder. Usually, it’s not a cause for concern unless it shows up in a U.S. senator.”
In an April episode of ABC’s “The View,”Bill Maher and Rosie O'Donnell professed their support for Al Franken’s 2008 Senate candidacy from Minnesota, with Miss O'Donnell saying she was “maxing out” to the comedian-turned-candidate.
Miss O'Donnell kept her word, contributing $2,300 to his campaign, the maximum donation for the primary, while Mr. Maher chipped in $1,000. They were among the more than 50 contributions that Mr. Franken, a former “Saturday Night Live” star, received from actors, writers, producers and others in the last reporting period, his campaign-finance report shows.
