    Some polls are suggesting that after gaining an initial bump, McCain's campaign is being hobbled by Sarah Palin's vice-presidential candidacy. The voters who are deserting her fastest, some of whom are even calling on her to withdraw, are mostly women.

    Ah, women, the consistently, tragically underestimated constituency. What the Democrats learned during the primaries and the Republicans might now be finding out the hard way, I learned at my very academic, well-regarded all-girls high school: that is never to discount the ability of women to open a robust, committed, well-thought-out vat of hatred for another girl.

    Women are weapons-grade haters. Hillary Clinton knows it. Palin knows it too. When women get their hate on, they don't just dislike, or find disfavor with, or sort of not really appreciate. They loathe — deeply, richly, sustainingly. I do not say this to disparage my gender; women also love in more or less the same way.

    But the first male to open his mouth in a cat fight will be immediately castrated by both parties.

    I don't hate Sarah Palin.

    I find her to be funny, charming and quite engaging as a person.

    I disagree with her fundamentally on several key issues and therefore would not vote for a ticket that she was on.

    I voted for Hillary during the primaries and would have been satisfied if she won the nomination.

    As a rule, I vote for women running for Congress and City Counsil position before I vote for men, regardless of party.

    I think it's categorically false to say that women hate women just to hate them. there is usually a basis for that hate. Sometimes the basis if jealousy or bitterness. Sometimes it's much more tangible.

    It seems that women started turning on Palin when Palin started talking. Perhaps the main issue with Palin is that she poorly represents women and therefore is looked upon as setting back our efforts to gain respect and position in national politics.

    Hillary lost the primary not because women turned on her.. quite the opposite. She lost the primary because she forgot to run an honorable campaign. She turned into the dirty mud slinging typical politician. For her it was more about winning that showing some integrity.

    I believe if she hadn't sunk so low and made so many personal attacks she might've gotten the nod for VP.

    Hillary burned her own bridge there.

    Palin did too.
