A few thoughts...ROMNEY: ... Important topic, and one which I learned a great deal about, particularly as I was serving as governor of my state, because I had the chance to pull together a cabinet and all the applicants seemed to be men.
And I went to my staff, and I said, How come all the people for these jobs areare all men. They said, Well, these are the people that have the qualifications. And I said, Well, gosh, cant wecant we find somesome women that are also qualified?
Andand so wewe took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet.
I went to a number of womens groups and said, Can you help us find folks, and they brought us whole binders full of women.
1. The Romney campaign didn't know a single woman who was qualified to serve in a cabinet-level role?
2. The Romney campaign ostensibly went out and recruited women in order to meet diversity goals?
I'm just happy that he's willing to let us leave work early so we can go home and cook dinner for our husbands and kids.
