-- I went to a number of women's groups and said can you help us find folks I brought us.
-- binders full of -- women.
To order up some binders to find qualified.
Driven young women who can learn.
-- in the field right now blinders.
The pool of qualified women as if my god they exist.
But I cannot think of a better person to continue Tim's work at treasury man -- -- -- global force secretary of defense.
And John -- For director of the central intelligence -- America's next secretary of state.
I've spent some good -- making fun of Republicans intend to -- kid and dad.
And the absence.
Women then -- and Jewish people in the congress and blacks and Hispanic has just been unreal.
Now I'm gonna have to learning with trying to explain why -- picture at least as relates to the president's cabinet looks the -- Well I went on to say Chuck Rangel did that it is embarrassing -- hell about diversity and new cabinet what about this -- panel.
-- I think a lot about -- yeah I think look I think -- embarrassing is the extent of it.
And it's not much more than that you don't see some kind of uprising of women's groups all over the place -- -- that -- appointed to women to the Supreme Court and yes it is embarrassing because they made such a big deal out of diversity and they slammed Mitt Romney so mercilessly that's why it's embarrassing.
And they did have.
I'm a woman as one of the big force the state would now she's been replaced by a man they've got a couple other slots to fill and I am sure they will be filled by female people.
I had labor and EPA and commerce when he gets around to it and if at some point not right now but if at some point Eric Holder -- justice I think you'll see what.
-- you know they made a big deal about it you you ran the clips of the Democrats made a big deal out of about it.
They won votes but promising to have a very very -- diverse very very very transparent cabinet.
And they haven't complied with that promise so the reaction to that is political.
Less credibility for the president and the people around.
The reality is he should be able to pick wherever he wants to run those departments he's -- responsible for running them and he should do so.
Colorblind and and gender blind Charles.
And it looks as if the binder of women that Obama ordered up -- extremely fit or perhaps it was Andy when he got it.
But I think there's only one point you should make others.
Which is it obvious hypocrisy of Democrats who pretended they would -- tribute women against those nasty Republicans.
Who are making a war on women and Romney who would have posted.
Policeman in front of pharmacies that would prevent any woman.
From getting a contraceptive.
So it's a matter of hypocrisy but on the principle.
I think Republicans and conservatives should never ever count -- by race or gender.
It's against where our country is in the sooner it's abolished and the sooner people even -- there's.
The healthier country will be.
More or less where does -- get everybody him.
That's a really good question I think in the end he does I think hagel is a big knock down drag out fight but in the end he he gets through -- -- he's the only one I think that even has a chance of being bought treasury agreed.
-- I think -- -- -- knockdown drag and I think you'll get in and I think he's in the air because he's the guy.
To draw down the military from Afghanistan and Iraq for this president.
I'm not going to ask for -- work.
Hyphenated yes that's it for the panel.
