Why is Barack Obama So Afraid of Women?

Apparently the Obama campaign does not want a woman on either the Democratic or Republican Presidential tickets. Why is he so afraid of women in top political positions? If you think that Hillary Clinton is the only woman that the Obama campaign has gone after this year, think again.

A few months ago, Senator McCain was thought to be considering a woman for the VP position on his ticket. Not just any woman, but Alaskan Governor, Sarah Palin. For those who haven't heard of Sarah Palin, you could say that she is the "maverick" of the Alaskan political game. She is a true reformer who took on corruption in her own party. She was making the media rounds and her name was getting alot of play in political circles.

The Obama campaign apparently did not want to be forced to put Hillary Clinton on the ticket so his minions set out to attack Sarah Palin. How? Obama's operatives in Alaska led by State Senator Hollis French have brought a frivolous investigation against Sarah Palin in order to derail her chances of becoming VP. Unfortunately for them, it appears to be blowing up in their face and Governor Palin may very well still be in the running for the Republican ticket.

You can find all of the information about Governor Palin at Palin for VP.

Why is Barack Obama so afraid to run with or against women? One last thought....have you ever noticed how many of John McCain's spokespeople on the media rounds are women? Have you noticed how many top business women have lined up to support John McCain? How many prominent women can you name in the Obama campaign?

Barack Obama, when will you learn that you will never win this election without the support of ..........duh, women!!!!!

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!

Could it be that, given that it's been said that should he be elected, that he will be the first woman president -- just as WJC was the first black president -- he's the jealous sort that doesn't want competition?

Ditto - which is why we must continue to fight for her!

I backtracked you from Adam's blog, and linked to you here. Personally, I think that he just wants to keep the identity politics in this campaign clear, and not let gender issues muddy or blur his own narrative. That doesn't necessarily mean people are going to take it that way, though.

Thanks everyone for your comments. Rob has a great blog that discusses Obama's woman problem. I highly recommend visiting his site.

VEEP Debates Q&A

QUESTION: How will Sarah Palin do in a debate with Joe Biden?

ANSWER: How many men watching will be aware that Biden is in the room?

Personally, I think Palin would be a great addition to the team (if she can stand the national spotlight).

Though, while I was sitting here pondering her selection, it occurred to me that such a well established pro-life person (if I understood that correctly from her bio) could potentially provide the Democrats with a sound bite capable of drowning out the "experience" factor.
Right now, it seems, the Republicans are flush with disaffected Hillary people. If we put Pro-Life so prominently on the ticket do we potentially alienate those women and make this a one issue campaign for a great many people? Is it even an issue any more? I throw that out for better minds than me.
