'Women are wired in an intricate web. They can pay attention to everything at once, while the male becomes driven and fixated on one issue, unable to move on to the next until the one that occupies his attention has been roped, tied, and barbecued. They are able to pay attention to multiple stimuli and attend to all of them.
When a woman is hungry, she thinks about whether the kids have been fed, what she weighed on the scale that morning and the number of pounds she needs to lose, the doughnut that she feels guilty about eating two days ago, and other details that escape the male mind. When a man is hungry, he eats. This description of the male mind does not only apply to hunger, but applies to every issue in the personal and political life of the male politician. They have nobody to blame but themselves. By sacrificing their private life for a public one, they surrender their privacy and the personal aspects of family. They endeavor to hide their foibles from the public eye, and that is the point where they run into trouble. The press is the most legitimized stalker, and there are people who stand to make a lot of money and a few minutes of fame by revealing a politician’s weaknesses.
This gets me back to the core of my message. Women make better politicians than men. They can pay attention to the details. They get more done in the driven world of politics by paying attention to those details. They typically don’t dance around the issues that they were elected to address, but work behind the facade of daily press exposure in resolving the issues that are important to them.'
