A Modest Proposal

Michele Bachmann says that America isn't ready for a female president, and that Barack Obama's election was at least partially due to "a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt."

Sour grapes, or does she have a point?

If she's right, there may be a way to move things forward.

What we need here is a female candidate who's a little less creepy, a little more charismatic, a little less bloodthirsty and a little more sane than either Bachmann or Hillary Clinton.

Perhaps a female candidate with a male running mate whom she's known to have long-term, abiding respect for and to whom misogynistic insecure male voters will consider her likely to defer when it comes to those tough questions that maybe a woman just can't be expected to deal with.

Maybe a ticket that takes a somewhat more time-tested position on racial issues, a ticket with long-term cachet on both the left and right.

They're tanned, rested and ready ...

Hey, it could happen!
