There were three possible reactions to Mitt Romney’s now famous story about how he looked for qualified women to serve in his cabinet after being elected governor of Massachusetts. One would have been to note that a Republican presidential candidate advocating what essentially amounts to affirmative reaction during a nationally televised debate is an unusual twist. A second would have been to call out Romney on his exaggeration — he didn’t compile the list of female candidates himself, an independent group did it before the election with the aim of giving it to whomever won. And the third would have been to obsess over the bizarre phrase “binders full of women” that Romney used to describe potential candidates. Guess which one America chose?
