I posed the following question to some of the most influential women of our time, "What message would you most want to get out to women about the upcoming election?" Here are their inspiring answers.
If you believe certain Republicans who have anointed Mitt Romney as the next president, I have a binder full of reasons they are wrong.
This is the age in which the Pelosis and Corkers of our political establishment no longer oppose each other, because they find common interest in their assault on the Bill of Rights that contains those principles held dear by decent liberals and conservatives alike.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sat down with journalist Jeff Greenfield at 92Y on April 1 to discuss current events and the political climate. She made news with her endorsement of Hillary Clinton for President in 2016.
The first presidential debate of the 2012 season happened this week, and (it pains us to say) the only person who called the outcome correctly was Chris Christie.
The problem goes far deeper than a few gaffs and a secretly taped video. The Republican Party failed to rebuild its governing philosophy after its foreign policy was rejected in 2006 and the global economy tanked in 2008.

Apart from a few celebrated and important leaders, the data on women's participation in American political institutions do not paint a particularly rosy picture of rising political power for women in the U.S.
There is little doubt -- particularly in the current climate -- that sexualized coverage and attacks will remain a factor in political races. The question is whether being a woman running for office is something that the country needs and fairness demands.
If the Republicans' fears are true, could it mean Democrats have a much better chance at taking the House back in the upcoming elections? To put it another way, will we see "Speaker Nancy Pelosi" again next year?
If Obama's re-elected and we're still suffering in 2016, as now seems likely, our "electable extremist" Paul Ryan will be in the perfect position to become the next President. Heads we win, says Corporate America, and tails you lose.
