As if the Republicons can really change...talk is cheap. Policy and tactics will remain the same.

If I only would have realized how pro women the GOP really is I would have voted Romney. I'll have to keep this in mind for the 2016 elections.

For a look at the future of the GOP look to the last two up and comer VP selections. This is why the GOP cannot gain traction. The message is weak, boringly patriotic, churchy, single issue, far right and in the case of Sarah, a thin expertise and daffy. One woman forced through the GOP House glass ceiling does not remake the dented can party. Mitt as well did not define the GOP future. His GOP rally endorsement was one of default and the last man standing rather than a decision of consensus and main stream party. By the way what is the mainstream GOP platform for the future?

Wow... don't change your positions just keep putting tokens up. That worked very well with Palin and others.

Fact: only 4% of the House Republicans are female; 8% Democrats. In other words, out of 538 members of Congress, women represent a mere 14%. And this is the 21st. century, folks??? 24 for the GOP; 54 for the Dems. The Senate doesn't fare much better: 20% female. At least the Supreme Court is at 30% (although one of them is close to dropping dead). One has to ask: how can we live in a country which is 51% female yet have so few women in positions of power????
