With so much talk about Hillary Clinton being the only formidable candidate on the left to run for president in 2016 -- one of the main narratives is of course that Hillary Clinton would be the first female president. That's powerful and I think the sentiment across the nation of doing something for the first time will be very important.
The same thing happened with Barack Obama. The nation as a whole felt like a big step had been taken in electing the country's first African American president. My question today though is why the Republican Party doesn't put up more women as possible candidates for president.
Yesterday, former Hewlett-Packard CEO, Carly Fiorina, said there's a more than 90 percent chance she will decide to run for president. That's good news for the Republican Party. They need more prominent women to think about running. But it also points out a problem for the party -- the image that most candidates at least running for president are white men.
To me -- its time to even the playing field -- and put up more women on the GOP side too.
