This quote sums it up pretty well for me:
Yes, it would be great to have a woman in the oval office, or in the VP slot if they are the right woman...a woman who got there with her own drive, grit, determination, intelligence, skill and merits. When you're hand-picked by a man to win votes simply because you are a woman, that doesn't count, and it doesn't break any kind of ceiling. Would we have had a Stan Palin as our VP pick? No. So choosing a woman because you think her gender will get votes is insulting.
