Political Women 2011

Who Is Your Favorite Political Woman of 2011?

This year was an off election season, but we still saw plenty of political action from women in 2011. Michele Bachmann played the role of the lone woman in the GOP presidential race, causing some controversy on women's issues by opposing the HPV vaccine and Plan B. Sarah Palin and Meghan McCain also shared their unique brands of conservatism in the media. Meanwhile, leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton represented issues on the left. Hillary, for example, upped pressure for international gay rights and lent her support to Saudi Arabian women fighting for the right to drive. But when it comes to most inspiring politician, it has to be Gabrielle Giffords, who survived the tragic January shooting in Arizona. Just last month, she and her astronaut husband opened up about Gabrielle's miraculous recovery. Out of all these leading ladies, who was your favorite?

I agree Betty Wayne, although for some reason it looks much harsher in print than I mean it in my head...

If there was an "other" I would vote Betty Sutton, but I voted Hillary. This is going to sound insensitive as hell. No offense to Gabby, her story is amazing and I'm sincerely happy for her and her family, but she didn't do anything spectacular politically, she got shot in the head and lived.
