Democrats Win the Mommathon
After Michelle Obama’s extraordinary speech the other night, her husband and his party are poised to capture one underlying contest of this convention season.
In “Primary Colors,” as Clinton and his cohorts engaged in a maudlin drunken contest about their saintly female forebears, the acerbic Hillary character noted that the “mommathon” would last all night.
For over a week now, both parties have been vying to put middle-aged women on a pedestal, but clearly Democrats have an edge here. Mitt Romney’s mom was no doubt a wonderful person, but she ran for the Senate when he was a kid.
