Blue Women

If only men had voted in the mid-term election, Republicans would still be in power. And because women broke so strongly for the Democrats, we will have more women in substantial power positions than ever, not just Nancy Pelosi. Some Republican women lost their seats, so there was only a net gain of 5 seats, but several women should be heading up important committees. Click below to see the numbers story details.

"It is, admittedly, awfully annoying to see one old and enduring stereotype at work. Now that Washington is such an unholy mess, women have been called in to clean it up. The greater joy is knowing that the emergence of strong, smart women will help the public adjust to seeing women in power. "
