Wasn't it Ms. Speier who said "Men shouldn't have a voice in abortion law because they don't have a vagina"? HOW can you feature this woman on your page after a statement like that? Do you care nothing for your own journalistic credibility? I'm constantly amazed at the statements from public figures that just get ignored by the press.

Leaving the above comment aside for being just stupid, I have an issue with Jackie Speier ignoring the largest segment of her constituency who need help in reaching their educational goals.... men! OK, I get it, Jackie Speier is a woman who's interests and agenda springs from a time when women were not getting their fair share, and in some aspects this is still true. But Ms. Speier was elected to represent all San Mateo residents, not just those who share her gender. So how are women doing today - what's the status of women in higher education? In reality it is now men who are being left behind. Nationwide, more women aspire to college, enroll in college, and stick around for graduation than men. Jackie Speier should focus on what is driving men away from college, and how can they get back in the game. College should never again be a prospect that favors one gender over another. Many experts believe this shift, one of the biggest among college demographics, has been driven by a growth of incentives and opportunities for women to complete college. Isn't it time for Jackie Speier to extend her efforts to those who need it most?
