“This is the problem of women trying to overcompensate in becoming more aggressive and macho so they are not accused of being soft on the need to kill and war, right?"
I'm glad a Republican didn't say that and while I can't say overcompensation was the cause Obama was sucked into the Libyan war by the female triumvirate of Hillary Clinton, Samantha Power, and Susan Rice for reasons that were never clear.
“This is the problem of women trying to overcompensate in becoming more aggressive and macho so they are not accused of being soft on the need to kill and war, right? Instead of taking the tradition of women of peace, and turning into a muscular waging of peace of conflict and prevention, she [Clinton] did the reverse, and [Madeline] Albright did the reverse and Anne Marie Slaughter did the reverse and some of Obama’s advisers did the reverse,” he said. “We have to be transcendent on this. We have to really go right to the core of what people are standing for, fighting for and fighting against.
I love Ralph Nader's contribution to pop psychology. It's not safe to put a woman in the presidency because she will overcompensate and become aggressive but is the Oval Office the only place this psychosis will manifest itself? Nader has documented several examples in Albright, Slaughter et al. Let's carry his proposition to its logical extreme. Why not play it safe and exclude women from all positions of authority? God, I'm glad he's not a Republican.
