To the WaPo, a woman is just a woman
The ultra liberal Washington Post offers a rare look into the way those on that side of the aisle really view things:
Wives and children are off-limits, especially to each other. Tipper and Hillary kept it together in public for all of those years, even through all the tensions. When Barbara Bush was asked what she thought of Geraldine Ferraro and said "it rhymes with witch," it was as if she'd peeled off her gloves on television and bared her unmanicured claws. (emphasis added)
So let me get this straight - "wives and children" are off-limits. Ok, makes sense so far. Hillary and Tipper "kept it together." Ok, both wives of candidates, so OK on that point. As far as whether these two "ladies" kept it together, well, that's an entirely different story. Now what's with this next line about a comment made by Barbara Bush about Geraldine Ferraro? First, Ferraro wasn't a candidate's wife, she was the VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. Is the Post intentionally misleading here in an attempt to make Barbara Bush look bad, as if she had personally attacked the wife of a candidate, or are they unintentionally showing their true colors - - revealing that, in their eyes, a woman VP will always be just that - only a woman?

a woman VP will always be "just" a woman in their eyes, just like a black VP or President will always be "black". i think these ultra liberals don't see people so much as they see members of various special interest groups
