Satuday Morning Coffee Questions on Women and Voting Power

I've been interviewed many times over the years by AP reporter David
Crary, and he always does a great job of capturing sensitive and
complex cultural issues that many other journalists can only simplify
into polarized extremes.

His byline article today, in which
he also interviews several of my most esteemed colleagues and fondest
friends-with whom I don't necesarily agree on this issue--is no
exception.

Feminists sharply divided between Clinton, Obama

NEW

presidency than America's feminists, yet — despite Hillary Rodham
Clinton's historic candidacy — the women's movement finds itself
wrenchingly divided over the Democratic race as it heads toward the
finish.

At breakfast forums, in op-ed columns, across the
blogosphere, the debate has been heartfelt and sometimes bitter. Are
the activist women supporting front-runner Barack Obama betraying their
gender? Are Clinton's feminist backers mired in an outdated,
women's-liberation mind-set?

Read the rest of the article here...
and tell me a) what you think and b) so what you think women ought to
do, not about this disagreement necessarily but about using our voting
power?
