PunditMom’s Spin Cycle Monday — Amendments, Sexism and the Year of the Ox

Sun, January 25, 2009

Moms & Politics


Does the Constitution need another amendment? Russ Feingold thinks so. Maybe you do too, if you live in New York or Illinois.

Lots of people, including myself, wondered if Caroline Kennedy had the experience to be New York Senator. Cokie Roberts made a good point on Sunday about that standard not being applied to Michael Bloomberg and so many other men.

There’s lots of buzz about President Obama’s new economic plan. But my question is this — where are the jobs for the women going to come from? For better or worse, all those infrastructure jobs will go to men. Help us out here a little, Barack.

Can you say Senator Oprah?

This week, I’m preparing for the panel I’ll be moderating at the Feminism 2.0 conference in Washington, D.C. My panel is entitled, Breaking the “Waves”: Moms Coming Together for Equality. You’ll recognize a couple of my pals who will be on the panel, so if you’re in town, please come!

And Gung Hay Fat Choy!

    Happy New Year to you, as well. I read that the year of the Ox is a time of economic prosperity. Let it be so.
