Year of the Woman Starts Off on a Catty Note

Hosted by

Women candidates won big this week in Arkansas, Nevada, South Carolina, Maine and Iowa. California Republicans chose former eBay CEO Meg Whitman as their nominee for Governor and former Hewlett-Packard head Carly Fiorina for the US Senate. Now Fiorina's been accused of setting back the cause of women in politics with a catty remark about her opponent. In a make-up room waiting to go on TV the day after her nomination, she joked to a staff member about something a friend said about Barbara Boxer. Ruth Marcus is columnist and editorial writer for the Washington Post.
