Earlier today on NPR DNC Chairman Howard Dean said this:  “If you look at folks of color, even women, they’re more successful in the Democratic Party than they are in the white, uh, excuse me, in the Republican Party.”

By saying that he's discounted every non-white, non-male Republican. And that includes a long, long list of people. One of them is Carly Fiorina, the first and only woman to EVER lead a Fortune 20 company, who issued this succinct response: "It is disappointing to see Howard Dean trying to use gender and race to divide voters. His comments are insulting, inappropriate and have no place in this election.”

I think she was biting her tongue quite a bit,  but I'd like to offer a resounding "Heck yea, Carly!"  I think many other "unsuccessful" women may have similar thoughts.
