Those of you who honor this blog with an occasional glance or two, will recognize this posting as my first foray outside of Lehigh Valley Politics. However, my motivation was local, today's Op Ed piece, entitled "Time will erode impact of Palin's rhetoric." * The piece was written by Nichola Gutgold, a local professor who is author of "Paving the Way for Madam President". Apparently when Ms. Gutgold wrote "Paving the Way..." she never had in mind a conservative, pro life, gun toting moose hunter. When Hillary Clinton spoke several weeks ago about cracking the glass ceiling, she didn't imagine a Sarah Palin. It seems democratic liberal women are more suited to govern than their conservative counterparts, who should apparently concentrate on motherhood. Nearby, democratic women had no problem electing Marjorie Margolies Mezvinsky to Congress with eleven children. I must give credit to Geraldine Ferraro. She acknowledges the accomplishments of Ms. Palin and warns Joe Biden not to underestimate her.
