I Hate Susan Estrich

For a variety of reasons, but this screed attacking Arianna for running for governor against the wishes of her poor children is ridiculous.

I think Arianna should drop out - I don't think running is going to do anything either for her or whatever political causes she is aligned with, but the "how dare she do that to her kids" angle is horrible. No one would use it against a man -- no one used it against George Bush who ran against the wishes of his daughters -- and a self-proclaimed feminist like Estrich shouldn't legitimize this kind of attack.
