I haven’t wanted to say too much about this Hilary Rosen story because she’s a friend. So I can’t be wholly objective. But I will say that I’ve heard enough smackdowns telling Hilary that raising children is in fact hard work. She’s a mother. I think she knows that.
My take is that the whole thing won’t turn out to be that big a deal. I’m sure Hilary would phrase things differently if she had another bite at the apple. But I think the Romney camp’s response is more a sign of desperation to find some way to peal back terrible numbers with female voters.
That’s all I have to say.
