Governor Palin, women and class

Thursday, September 11, 2008

Hillary Clinton got cheers when referred to the people who voted for her in the primaries as "18 million cracks" in the glass ceiling for women in politics; now Sarah Palin has arrived on the national political scene with that image still in the air. Polls suggest that this young governor is energizing a wing of women voters who might otherwise stay home or vote Democratic this election. The Takeaway examines how Palin plays with women voters and how gender factors into campaign politics this year.
