    Too bad they aren't the hotties I had hoped for. ;)

    Most of them look like me.

    We'll start to see more of this in other legislatures as time goes on.

    I'd also bet that as a gesture to the women that voted for him, Obama will be appointing two women to the Supreme Court.

    I think this year also marks a new record for women in the US Senate. IIRC we're up to 17 on January 3rd.

    A rare exclusively positive thread in PRSI. :)

    Very cool. Its great that women are getting through these "gender barriers" with relative ease now.

    My only fear, as a woman myself, is that people will think "give it to her because she is a woman" instead of "give it to her because she is the best." But I guess that is a concern with any sort of up and coming "minority".

    I wonder how many male state senators will have trouble breaking into the Old Girl's Club. :cool:
