salon.com — Lilly Ledbetter. Planned Parenthood. Contraceptive coverage as “not just a health issue; it’s an economic issue for women.” No one could say President Obama wasn’t making a direct approach to women, the one his allies have been begging him to make. He might have just handed the mic to Sandra Fluke — or Ledbetter herself. And Romney? He had “binders full of women” that became an instant meme for Obama’s re-energized voting base, and he blamed single parents — women, really — for gun violence. Forget, if you can for a moment, the absurd jump from gun violence to stigmatizing single mothers without a shred of evidence. What does Mitt Romney have to offer those often-vulnerable female-headed households? You don’t need a binder for that kind of thin and inadequate solution.
