Some women


The Guardian has a slideshow of Obama's women. Above is Hilda Solis, Secretary of Labor. There's nothing I like more than seeing a woman who looks like she's been round the block a few times, giving powerful men a piece of her mind.

Remember, women with some mileage have always been very central to Obama's life, right from the start.

Madeline Albright once said in an interview that her male staffers balked at orders to carry her handbag but she made them do it anyway. Love that!

Hilda Solis is an alum of my university! Good to see intelligent, competent women up in the ranks.
