Fear of Women in the White House
Politico's Jeremy Mayer is all in a tither about the ambition of First Wives. Eleanor Roosevelt, Hillary Clinton, and now Michelle Obama just won't quit acting like women who have something to offer other than the traditional uncompensated wifely labor.
Why won't the wives stay in the bedroom?
Queen Michelle the First?:
Washington insiders haven’t seen a first lady this ambitious since Hillary Clinton, without question the most powerful holder of that unofficial office.
Clinton put herself in charge of her husband’s plans to radically reform health care, and the nation is still paying the price for her mistakes.
Bullshit, the nation is still paying the price for not listening to Hillary.
