Politicians know they need women to win elections. We vote more than men. And since the majority of women become mothers by the time they’re in their forties, that means politicians need moms.
Now, you’d think in light of that, they’d pay a little more attention to us in the political down times. As our husbands know, wooing is a very important part of any good relationship! But even with the wooing, I’d like to see them stop with the name calling. No, it’s never really been anything bad, but candidates often feel the need to put labels on mothers who vote. As we head into the pre-Super Tuesday part of the 2012 presidential campaign, what kind of mother do you think you are when it comes to the issues? Do any of these labels fit?
