Good News ... Well, Sort Of

Pardon me for viewing the glass as "half empty" rather than "half full," but I wondered if I was the only person slightly depressed by a new poll for Hearst Newspapers. On his Donkey Rising blog, Ruy Teixeira gives the poll this headline: "Poll Says America Is Ready for Woman President."

Yes, a clear majority of the nation is willing to elect a female president. But it's sad to know that roughly 1 in 5 Americans (19%) are unwilling to vote for a woman.

Am I just a pessimist? If I am, so is Matthew Yglesias.
