typical of politicians

It seems that Ms Boxer has forgotten her roots. She after all was a vocal opponent of marriage and child rearing back in the years that women saw fit to burn their bras in the street. I have NO qualms with women burning their bras and then being told that marriage is unfit for progessive women. However Ms Boxer should praise Ms Rice since she has followed the ultimate success route for the 60's & 70's woman. She has never been married, has achieved accolades unknown too many men, plus she did this while growing up in an age where segregation was the norm.
My owwwww my how was all that possible without government there to hold her hand. This lady could earn millions in the private sector as any business would be ecstatic to list her as a board member or any such position.

Ms Boxer you are completely unhinged and should be removed from any further hearing on this matter.



January 12, 2007 -- Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, an appalling scold
from California, wasted no time yesterday in dragging the debate over
Iraq about as low as it can go - attacking Secre tary of State
Condoleezza Rice for being a childless woman.

Boxer was wholly in character for her party - New York's own two
Democratic senators, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Rodham Clinton, were
predictably opportunistic - but the Golden State lawmaker earned special
attention for the tasteless jibes she aimed at Rice.

Rice appeared before the Senate in defense of President Bush's tactical
change in Iraq, and quickly encountered Boxer.

"Who pays the price? I'm not going to pay a personal price," Boxer said.
"My kids are too old, and my grandchild is too young."

Then, to Rice: "You're not going to pay a particular price, as I
understand it, with an immediate family."


Simply breathtaking.

We scarcely know where to begin.

The junior senator from California apparently believes that an
accomplished, seasoned diplomat, a renowned scholar and an adviser to
two presidents like Condoleezza Rice is not fully qualified to make
policy at the highest levels of the American government because she is a
single, childless woman.

It's hard to imagine the firestorm that similar comments would have
ignited, coming from a Republican to a Democrat, or from a man to a
woman, in the United States Senate. (Surely the Associated Press would
have put the observation a bit higher than the 18th paragraph of a
routine dispatch from Washington.)
