The Wall Street Journal on women in politics.

Published August 15, 2007 12:47PM (EDT)

An actual paragraph from an actual news article in today's Wall Street Journal: "Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton could be elected president next year, and Rep. Nancy Pelosi would likely remain Speaker of the House assuming the Democrats retain control of Congress. But otherwise, women's long, steady march into public office could stall in 2008, and possibly even retreat."
