The Midterms & the Glass Ceiling

Let’s start this blog off with some good news, shall we?

The 2006 midterm elections (a.k.a. oh happy day) may foreshadow new opportunities for women and greater acceptance of women as leaders in this country.

Of course, the first thing the President said to the presumptive Speaker of the House (and therefore third in line for the presidency), Nancy Pelosi, was that he’d give her the name of a Republican interior decorator to help her pick out new drapes for her office.

So (hooray!) we have our first woman Speaker. But (boo!) we still have a boar in the Oval Office.
