I watched the debates with my husband and daughter in a practical state of hysteria; I was so wound up in the drama. But one the comment that got my husband agitated was the infamous 'women in binders' exchange when our former governor talked about workplace flexibility so women could go home and cook. My calm, quiet husband burst out in anger 'Men need to go home and be with their families too! I am so tired of a work place culture that think men don’t need to be home with their families. This isn't a women's issue, its a family issue!'
I stared at him opened mouth, mostly because my husband never gets excited. In fact his calm demeanor can really tick me off sometimes. But he is absolutely correct and it got me thinking why I feel the Democratic Party has a better approach to family then the party of 'Family Values'.
