US: Opinion round-up

(Opinion) Gender politics in Congress Washington Post It’s distressing — even sickening — that debate about this landmark law has devolved into one more election-year grudge match between Democrats and Republicans shamelessly using gender to try to score political points.

(Opinion)  CURL: Hillary Clinton will be the 2012 veep candidate Washington Times Show of hands: Who here still thinks Vice President Joseph R. Biden will be on the 2012 ticket? Really? All of you? So wrong. The Great One, Sir Barack Hussein Obama, will replace the bumbling, buffoonish Mr. Biden with Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, maybe at the Democratic convention, maybe just before, in a last-ditch effort to win re-election.

(Opinion) Obama: Stop Condescending to Women New York Times  WHEN I listen to President Obama speak to and about women, he sometimes sounds too paternalistic for my taste.
