Obama and Women as Tactical Weapons

The Bombshell loves O. Like so many other American women who helped elect him in '08, I adore that great, always-ticking political brain. I love his health care reform, his calm, cool and collected kill order for OBL. His barely clothed socialist tendencies drive me wild, too.

The trouble is, I'm not sure he really loves us -- me and my sisters -- back. Oh sure, we look pretty good about three months before an election. And yes, he's put two women on the Supreme Court who will presumably help keep women's basic rights intact for decades to come. But it really hurts to have to admit that, to him, women are tactical advantages, mere numbers and percentages in a demographic column.

Don't get me wrong. It's absolutely imperative that women go out and vote for this man in droves. The alternative is unthinkable. But it is sad that we must support him not for what he has done, or even might do for us, but for what will surely happen without him.
