In case you missed Dee Dee Myers, Channel 17 taped her and has the speech on its Web site. You can see it HERE
Yes, she can be partisan in her comments, but it seemed to me that she made a case, no matter one's political beliefs, for diversity in the workplace. She was talking gender diversity specifically. I would argue other kinds of diversity are also valuable.
Since the room was filled with mostly women, and from the applause at particular moments, mostly Democratic women, it might behoove other sorts - men, for instance, and Republicans to take a listen. Republicans just might not like the jokes as much.
Speaking of Channel 17, they'll soon have on their Web site a debate taped yesterday among the lt. gov candidates.
