D.C. Moms

The media [1] have latched onto Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's recent use of the image of mom-as-lawmaker. In a page one story, the New York Times [2] and other outlets [3] have written that women politicians now feel more liberated to discuss their membership in the fellowship of motherhood (and in fact think hyping the mommy angle makes them more attractive to mom voters), while other writers [4]maintain that this isn't a good thing.   --  Meredith O'Brien
