Stand by your stepping stone

So, this is what it takes to get into the Women's Hall of Fame? Follow your husband, ride on his coattails, ignore his philandeering, all because it advances your own ambitions, then lecture the rest of us on how important it is to let the whole village run your life? Oh, well. Until they admit Condi Rice (fat chance), at least some of the women in the hall are ones I wouldn't mind hanging out with. You have to admit someone is a well-rounded person who:
