HA. No, she is anything but that. I was the one to suggest she might either stay away or come in with a gender neutral ID. As for chicken, she can hold her own or take out pretty much anyone. The former Navy Lt Commander is made of pretty tough stuff.

No need at all for her to identify herself by gender. Androgyny, that's the ticket.

If she's all that then wtf is the problem again?

Most officers I've dealt with took their careers into consideration before anything else. Like most management. (I just had a "Pogo" moment)

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

The problem is with how we, as a group have been known to address women when they show up on the board. That was the original intent of the post in response to one of the previous comments.

I find feigned indifference to be a fairly successful tact.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
