how is the premise legitmate? does Oprah make America panic? does the CEO of Ford make america panic? Janet yellen did the opposite of causing economic panic. powerful Democrat women may make conservative politicians and voters panic but thats obvious politics. If you keep writing grabby headlines messaging society hates women, than at what point do you exaggerate and contribute to that perception?

I was glad to hear the topic of powerful women covered and I do like hearing from Ross as a same conservative voice. That helps me keep an open mind and not succumb to confirmation bias. I do think the content could be improved by limiting the use of the words "like" and "sort of." Perhaps that's a generational critique but overuse of that speaking style makes it difficult to take the speaker as seriously as she/he deserves.

this is less an argument and more an echo chamber

"Liberals established that precedent"? So why did candidate Gary Hart drop out and John Edwards was rejected by primary voters?

Great discussion & debate with good ideas & insight. Loved comment on Nixon possibly not being impeached if @FoxNews had been around. I think how Right responds has everything to do with how Fox decides to cover it. Partisans get triggered by biased coverage and inoculated from attacks on their own side by incessant idealogical attacks of other. Can't get mad about what we don't get presented with or by what is presented dishonestly or as lesser evil by partisan news. :(

The was a good subject to speak about but I feel that Michelle arguments were one sided. I can hear where it was difficult for her to speak about the her apposing ideals. Michelle needs to be clear with her thaughts and understand rhetoric. The guy did awesome viewing both sides of the matter!

I appreciate Michelle's comments. And, the electoral college is a major undemocratic process where the loser wins.
