Susan Estrich a democratic political contributor (Who ran the Dukakis campaign) points out in the following article the double standard that Sarah Palin is being subjected to. I find it amazing that the Democratic Party who has marketed itself as the party for progressive women is now out questioning her ability to serve and be a mother.
For all of their talk and rhetoric about being the political party for women the Dems have done everything possible to push women away this election cycle. They chose Obama over Clinton in the primaries and then cast her aside by not even seriously considering Clinton for VP. Now there is an active campaign to discredit Palin for being a working mother.
The hypocrisy of the Democratic Party is why people hate politics. We finally have a strong, attractive, executive women rise to the pinnacle of American politics and because she is a Republican she is not worthy.
Here is the article from Estrich:
