Huckabee and Hannity both attacked Obama for having two few women in key advisory positions. It’s debatable whether this criticism is justified, but I happened to hear Crystal Ball make the same point on MSNBC, and she was fairly persuasive.
Of course, Crystal Ball, a liberal, would have been all over a Republican administration with the same defect. So for her to go after a Democrat on these grounds shows a certain amount of intellectual honesty and a nonpartisan commitment to larger principles.
What are the odds that either Huckabee or Hannity would have criticized a Republican administration for appointing too few women? I will let you know as soon as I get my new contract to play center field for the New York Yankees. I’m holding out for $125 million.
