Palin sets women back

To the Editor:

Thanks to Sarah Palin, women who wish to run for higher office will have to battle their way again.

Palin’s novice understanding of the important issues of our time and her unprofessional, valley girl behavior feeds right into the hands of those who would like to think that women can’t handle higher office.

John McCain should be ashamed of himself. If he were to pick a woman as his running mate, why not pick someone of substance such as Kay Bailey Hutchison or Olympia Snowe?
