GOP pollster Kellyanne Conway, on Obama possibly nominating a woman to replace David Souter:
Can you imagine any of Obama’s nominees being treated the way that Sarah Palin and her family were treated by the media? It’s “interesting,” as they say in Washington. Gender and class ended up being a huge obstacle for one person, and they’re likely to be a huge boost to this person that Barack Obama selects.
