Read this piece, and see if you can decipher what point York was trying to make. I'll help you out a little, with a passage from it:
But then came a woman named Betsy Markey, who reminded the crowd that she was elected to the House of Representatives in 2008 but lost the next time around, in 2010, to a Tea Party Republican named Cory Gardner. Markey is now running for state treasurer, and, almost as an aside, told the crowd, "I am also the only Democratic woman running statewide."
It's true. Despite all the women on the stage, and all the talk about women's rights, when it comes to actually running women for statewide office, Colorado Democrats have fallen a little short. There are six statewide offices on the ballot in this election — governor, lieutenant governor, senator, secretary of state, attorney general, and treasurer — and in five of those races the Democratic candidates are men, Markey being the lone exception.
In addition, of the seven Democratic candidates for U.S. House seats from Colorado, six are men. (Incumbent Rep. Diana DeGette is the exception there.) In this intense election season, Democrats have filled the airwaves with soundbites from women and discussion of so-called women's issues. But the Democrats on the ballot are almost all men.
To me, the message is pretty clear. York is pointing out the interesting choice that Colorado Democrats (lead by Mark Udall and his lovely ads) talk about women, women, women; but when it comes time to actually run candidates, the choices from the Party are almost exclusively men.
Others read the article and think it is about how in Colorado, neither Party runs women for office.
And that Condi Rice should be the choice for President of Colorado.
