"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

I Don't Trust A Mother Who Does Not Cry

Therefore, on this Mother's Day, I want to honor two politically powerful mothers, who have not been afraid to shed tears in public.

First, here is Sarah Palin crying about her discovery that she could, indeed, love a son with Down's Syndrome.

Then, here we see Hillary Clinton paying tribute, through tears, to another mother's son.

Some additional commentary about the Clinton tears can be seen HERE. I'd like to thank Ms. Battaile for calling out the media hypocrisy in relation to our now Secretary of State, then Senator, Clinton. When she cried on the trail during the Democratic primaries.

May the day come when no woman, or man, will be ridiculed for their tears!

Isn't it high time that we realize a dry cheek is *NOT* a prerequisite for leadership?
