Obama the Feminist-in-Chief?

(Updated with new video. The CNN embed wasn't working)

Are they kidding? Building a Cabinet that looks more like 1992 (or even Bush) hardly does anything to support such a ludicrous claim. Building a team that is center-right has been a disappointment and as I've written before, even the right wing Sarkozy of France has offered a more diverse Cabinet as has the Zapatero government in Spain. Neither Spain nor France have been considered feminist friendly countries in the past but somehow they manage to hire women in positions of authority. Ms. magazine obviously wanted to cash in on Obama fever but to suggest he is a feminist (heck, even a liberal) is laughable.
