31. Who would you rather have in office?

Michelle Bachmann, or Al Franken?

Meg Whitman, or Jerry Brown?

Linda McMahon, or Chris Murphy?

I know I'll be told this is a simplistic way of looking at a larger issue, but there are many women who have absolutely no interest in looking out for other women's best interest. I think the premise of the article is faulty. I do not believe that women govern better. I think that some do, and others are simply awful.

Unless you want to blow up the two party system entirely first....the fact is that the Republicans will be more than happy to run the Sarah Palins and Nikki Haleys of the world who are nothing more than puppets for a far right anti-female, anti-choice, pro religious right agenda.

I also think it's kinda funny they actually included Michelle Bachmann in the photo in the article. Do they even know who she is?
