Woman CEO sought for Summers jobUm, doesn’t fit the female(?) bill precisely? What does that mean? Is a male candidate acceptable so long as he always dresses in drag and appears female? Oy.
The pick doesn’t have to fit that bill precisely, but it’s highly likely Obama’s pick will be either a woman or a business leader – and preferably both, said several people familiar with the situation.
News flash: The country couldn’t care less about the gender of Larry Summer’s replacement. We are looking for competency and for someone who can “git ‘er done”. Personally, I don’t even care if Summer’s replacement is mammal. But as always, Obama is concerned more with making some special interest group happy than with taking care of the country’s business.
I have no doubt that there are many qualified women out there. However, finding the right person for the job goes a little bit deeper than a mere resume and a lot deeper than the area between a person’s legs. During this time of high unemployment and economic uncertainty the president should concentrate on finding the best person for the job and leave the gynocology to the out of it.
