“If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and every mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we’d have problems with caterpillars,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend. “It’s a fiction.”

Dear Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. American women have been compared to lot of barnyard animals in legislative bodies around America. The novelty of trivializing a patriarchal fight for women’s bodies as the equivalent of a ‘Caterpillar War’ is the reality that from the cocoons emerge stark raving mad, incredibly beautiful Smart Sensuality butterflies!

Elle magazine presents At the Pinnacle of Hillary Clinton’s Career, opening with the AOC 2012 election mantra.

Secretary of State Clinton has won over her harshest critics and become so popular that some Democrats are envisioning a future in which she replaces Joe Biden as vice president on the 2012 ticket and then—dare they imagine it—takes the top job in 2016.

Hillary Clinton is introduced by her husband Bill Clinton to didn’t arrive with a police escort. He is rushed to the stage for the Nonprofit International Crisis Group’s awards ceremony, shere his wife will be honored and give the keynote speech.

“I know I’m just sort of a warm-up act,” says the Secretary’s husband, to laughter. Bill Clinton is circumspect in thanking the honorees and Hillary for their enormous efforts on behalf of women’s rights. “Some day we hope to liberate every man on earth from the tendency as old as human history to identify our strength and manhood with the ability to control the lives, limit the chances, and doom the dreams of women and girls,” he says.

Then in a unique moment for Bill watchers, he cuts his remarks short and sits down. His wife follows with a speech that captured the hearts of her audience. A Human Rights Watch worker at Elle writer Rachel Combe’s table, held a hand over her heart, hearing Clinton’s steady voice saying “That may have been the coolest speech I’ve ever heard in my life.”

Women’s complex community ties make them invested in the well-being of many groups and more likely to raise issues that truly influence quality of life and maintain peace: education, health, justice, employment. Often marginalized themselves, women are more apt to speak up for ethnic and religious minorities. Since they’re usually not doing actual fighting, they can serve as mediators and mobilize other noncombatants to pressure soldiers to lay down their arms. “Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world,” she says. “It is past time for women to take their rightful place, side by side with men, in the rooms where the fates of peoples, where their children’s and grandchildren’s fates, are decided.”

More DFR

“Face it: Facebook board features seven white men, no women”, writes ZDNet.

Alice Baumgartner, one of FACE IT Campaign members says it “protests the fact that although women make up the majority of Facebook’s users, produce the majority of its content, and drive its profits, Facebook’s board is made up of seven white men. The Face It campaign is supported by community and business leaders who are tired of seeing so little movement on the issue of diverse leadership.”

Where Art Thou Virginia?

The big story at the 2012 Masters isn’t about gold. It’s about when and where will we find International Business Machines Corp. chief executive Virginia M. Rometty. IBM has long sponsored the Masters, and the company’s CEOs have been offered memberships. 

Augusta National, of course, is an all-male club and Ms Rometty is a golfer. Will she be offered a green jacket or will she only be entertaining clients in the IBM tent? If Rometty isn’t offered a place in the clubhouse, will it mean the end of IBM’s sponsorship of Augusta, or will clients’ social needs supercede even that decision? Of course, without a membership at Augusta, IBM can no longer take clients into the clubhouse.

The tournament began Thursday and Ms Rometty says she will attend.

Mitt & the Ladies

Top Democratic pollster Celinda Lake tells The Daily Beast that Romney may be trailing Obama badly with independent women, but he can change course.

“Independent women are very swing, so they are anything but locked up,” she told The Daily Beast. “I think they are paying attention earlier than they normally do because these things are so outrageous in their minds. It isn’t just the positions the Republicans are taking—it’s the priorities. These women thought, ‘Things are really tough for my family, this country is in as deep a trouble as I’ve seen in my lifetime, and you’re worried about my birth control?’ That’s the really big factor here.”
