  The first woman elected to the White House will answer to many names -- Madam President, ma'am, and, most likely, Mom. That's something I like to think about on Mother's Day. Given the demographics and family status of many of the women in politics today, there's a pretty good chance that the first female [...]

By | May 11th, 2012|2012 election, Moms & Politics, Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans|2 Comments

    After all the hub-bub and faux hand-wringing by many Republicans and the Mitt Romney team about Romney's wife Ann supposedly being the target of political "mommy wars," the Romney campaign has apparently decided they can't let this Mother's Day go by without making some more hay.

Sure, I get to leave the dishes in the sink and the dirty laundry in the hamper today.  And it's great that "some people" (you know who you are!) are going to make me dinner tonight, but on the tenth anniversary of being able to celebrate Mother's Day as a mother myself, I've been thinking [...]

The Political Economics of Mother’s Day

By | May 10th, 2009|Uncategorized|2 Comments

After reading about two new volumes out just in time for Mother's Day, I've resigned myself to the notion that Mother's Day will continue to be the hook on which some capitalize on their own insecurities, both intellectually and financially.Instead of praising stay-at-home moms, what if the media praised all mothers? I'd rather not think [...]

If you're like me, trying to find that perfect Mother's Day gift is often a challenge (though I made it easy for Mr. PunditMom and PunditGirl this year by asking for an addition to our lawn furniture!)But MomsRising sure knows how to make a mom feel good about all the things we do that, to [...]
