'Council on Women' will be over 60% men

Re the ‘Council on Women’, here’s more info (as of January) as to its apparent gender ratio.

Men: 15
Women: 7 (including Jarrett and Tchen)

See http://thenewagenda.net/obama-cabinet-watch/ as to Obama’s cabinet members and ‘cabinet level posts.’ His ‘Council on Women’ is defined as automatically including all those office holders. (Sorry I lack the stomach to read the Executive Order to see if it includes anyone else.)

A male dominated placebo wrapped in a fig leaf, I calls it.

Jarrett’s help would likely go to where it would get the most bang for its buck for 2012. That’s not likely to be serious money for people who already give their milk for free. It would be token money aimed to impress white guilt liberals who might otherwise start voting their own economic interests or their common sense. Or money to ACORN and other organizations that directly worked for Obama. Etc.

It's symbolic and I don't think it will do anything.

Tchen was a top bundler/supporter who chose Obama over Clinton. That's her path to the White House.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Tchen was an early Obama supporter and ultimately became one of his most prolific fundraisers. After the campaign ended, Obama appointed Tchen to be White House Director of Public Liaison.

A longtime feminist, Tchen says she found that people she worked with on women’s rights issues were often surprised that she was not supporting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in the 2008 Democratic primary. But Tchen was one of Obama’s top fundraisers during his 2004 Senate campaign as well as during his 2008 presidential campaign. For the presidential run, she bundled more than $200,000 for Obama.

No office, no budget, no full-time workers? Jarrett and Tchen are keeping their day jobs.

Pure symbolism.
