Michelle Bernard: The GOP’s savior will be a woman
As the Republican Party attempts to make amends for recent history and become a party that reflects America as it is today, one must ask, why focus solely on Rubio and the white male GOP Powers the punditocracy seems most inclined to banter about. Those names include former Florida governor Jeb Bush, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Rep. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) – who, coincidentally, delivered the Tea Party’s response to Obama’s State of the Union address.
Some of these men are appealing. However, one must ask, with a gender gap as large as Mount Rushmore, why so little mention of what the right woman can bring to the table?
