Women are Never Front Runners

Gloria Steinem has an op-ed piece in today's New York Times about gender in the presidential primary and the different standards applied to Hillary Clinton versus the male candidates, especially Barack Obama. Like her, I think both are excellent candidates and I'd be thrilled to have either of them in the White House. But thank you, Ms. Steinem, for so clearly pointing out how race and gender are being treated so differently in this race. Women should pay attention, because this affects all of us.
