This is a repeat from four years ago, but it also makes a great lead-in to something I have been thinking about a lot lately. A time of great change means that we have to cast off the old and give birth to the new – we need reform. How do we achieve that? History has shown us a remarkable way – bringing women to power. Is it because women are the consummate outsiders in a male world? Is it because they have a different perspective that is lacking in traditional power schemes?
Whatever the reasons, history has show that women have been more than great leaders. Perhaps Sen Warren (D-MA) will continue this tradition, or even Sec. Clinton. More likely, there will be more that we haven’t heard of yet. It’s all a very good thing.
