Jeane Kirkpatrick, RIP

Jeane Kirkpatrick, who by the appointment of President Ronald Reagan became the first woman to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, died today. She was 80.

Kirkpatrick considered running for President in 1988. The Oracle wishes she had. Perhaps she would have spared us all of the disingenuous talk we are about to hear in the coming 2 years about whether or not the United States is "ready" to elect a woman President.

The U.S. would be ready if it were a woman like Kirkpatrick. The one being discussed for 2008 is not.
