VP to Represent the Times?

If John McCain is elected, Palin will be the most visible working mother in America, representing 61 percent of all mothers, according to an ABC News poll. Of those, 45 percent work full time, 16 percent part time and 37 percent said they're "on a career track."

I can completely see that. My husband is 1 of only 7 men in his department and there are over 100 employees in that particular area. I have seen reports of how the workforce is being driven by the majority of working moms. 9 out of the 11 women my husband supervises have children.

Dr. Phil had some great thoughts this a.m. on the Today show. I loved what he said about leaving her private life private for the sake of the two kids starting their life together the harder way. Still feel as if I'm torn about her: brings a lot of good stuff to the table, but not crazy about the peripheral issues. No matter her qualifications, her family issues will still impact her choices and decisions. They should. But I'm concerned it might be a distraction to her job duties . . . . in the short term and in the long run for both the family and the nation . . .

Yes, she's a working mother. But she is not your typical working mother. She is not struggling to make ends meet, worrying about finding and paying for daycare. She's a working mother who can have nannies and care at all hours when she would be working or traveling and not have to worry about who, if anyone, is caring for her kids. And maybe if she was paying closer attention to the activities to her children, she wouldn't have an unmarried, pregnant high school daughter.
