I am compelled to write as nothing has made me sadder than watching Greta's "documentary" on Sarah Palin last night. I am the working mother of two small children (1 and 3).  The sight of a kitchen counter with a blackberry and a child's dinner side by side is one that takes place in our house every day.  I would love to know how she does it - and that is because on the question of  'balance' between family and work, Sarah Palin has lessons for all of us. 

What made me sad, however, and deeply disturbed was the COMPLETE ABSENCE of any discussion of what Governor Palin plans to do if elected Vice President. She is not running to be "balancing mother of the year" - she would win that hand's down. She is running for Vice President.
