A Mom in the War Room

By now just about everyone in America has seen this photo of our leaders in the White House Situation Room (more PC to call it "Situation Room" than "War Room" I suppose) watching the operation that got Osama bin Laden. While all of our leaders are expressing the appropriate amount of gravitas, the expression on Hillary Clinton's face strikes me the most. As someone's mother, I can totally relate to what her face suggests she was feeling at the time. I'm reminded of that old saying, the one that goes something like, "What would the world be like if there were no men? No war and lots of fat, happy women eating chocolate."

At the risk of perhaps being seen as sexist or overly political, from acitymom to a former First Lady Mom, I for one am grateful to have a woman like Hillary Clinton in the position of Secretary of State, someone who apparently will not take lightly a decision to put any one of our children in harms way.
