This week the nation got a glimpse of the future, as the frontrunners tipped their hands about what lies in store for us. After big wins in several states, Donald Trump proclaimed, to a sideways glance from Mary Pat Christie, that "the only card [Clinton] has is the woman's card." Clinton responded by saying, "If fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in!" It's a curious strategy to start off the pivot to the general election by insulting 52 percent of the electorate. Republican women lawmakers responded by urging Trump to nominate a woman as VP. But as insulting as Trump's comments were, even worse for women are his policies. Policies denying women equal pay and access to reproductive rights are pretty good examples of "playing the man card." What's clear is that the GOP's Dais Strategy -- reaching out to a group put off by its policies by bringing a member of that group up on the dais -- isn't a winning hand.
