Why Didn’t Hillary Clinton Get the Dem VP Nomination?
In the Yoest household kitchen Answer: She’s not married to Todd Palin.
On CNN yesterday Charmaine reinforced the point that women can succeed in any position at any level, if she has a deep support system. Beyond the government safety net.
The best support system is to marry a guy who will embrace the family mission, the family business. A husband who is not distracted by interns at 2am.
And will lift up his wife when her time comes…
And I’m not just talking pregnancy.
About half of all women who enter into a Ph.D. program do not finish. When Charmaine was working on her disertation at the University of Virginia, Your Business Blogger(R), MBA, and Charmaine’s parents, Mom, Ph.D; Dad, Ph.D; Brother, Ph.D. and Penta-Posse gathered together and strategized on the path to make sure that Charmaine was in the half that got ‘hooded.’
The extended family decided to invest in Charmaine.
Money was key but not the entire issue. Wisdom and logistical support were the real needs of house hold and five little ones.
Extended family and a hubby who will sacrifice for the family mission is the solution to whatever success the family, the mother, the mission will achieve.
Todd Palin is my kind of guy. Like me, he married way over his head and is not afraid to let the world know.
We are both married to CEO’s who advance the family mission. Our extended families have made sacrifices and investments to advance very talented women, very talented wives.
If more feminists had devoted husbands, maybe they’d enjoy more success. As well as the other benefits of marital bliss (re Five Children…).
And this is the real reason the liberals hate Sarah Palin. She is normal.
Thank you (foot)notes:
Fish on a bicycle by Ray Troll Feminist icon Gloria Steinem can be blamed for a lot problems these days in verbiage and communication in the battle of men vs women.
But not this phrase.
“In your note on my new and happy marital partnership with David Bale, you credit me with the witticism A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. In fact, Irina Dunn, a distinguished Australian educator, journalist and politician, coined the phrase back in 1970 when she was a student at the University of Sydney.”
Credit should go to Irina Dunn, graffiti artist and Australian Senator from the Nuclear Disarmament Party.
