The 2010 Health Care Summit: Where Are the Women?

It's the year 2010, so why am I remembering the bad old days when men made the laws of the land for the good of us helpless little women?

Looking around the Health Care Summit table, I see Nancy Pelosi, Kathleen Sebelius and Marsha Blackburn.

Over there on the Republican side, I see a number of unidentified women sitting silently behind important men. Like this is a Middle Eastern conference of important male leaders attended by silent, obedient women.

Why can't our esteemed leaders get anything done? Gee, I dunno, maybe it has something to do with the outrageous and draconian and sexist custom of keeping women away from the decision making table.
