This may seem shallow, but one thing has irked me about her from the beginning....I NEVER see her in pants (unless I missed it, but doubt it, since they kept her too well hidden). Most women in that role would be seen in both; Hillary took a beating for wearing pant suits (though undeserved), but she also wears dress suits. Palin always wears dresses/dress suits, I DON"T TRUST A WOMAN (POLITICALLY) WHO ONLY WEARS DRESSES! It makes her appear subservient. Of course, this is JMHO.
I don't think you mentioning that SaraTodd Palin always wears skirts is shallow at all...it IS part of the Rove program.

She was picked for her sex appeal, obviously not her strength or brains.

Some mistakenly identify "feminine" with what a woman wears but not everyone's definition of "feminine" is the same.

Nor should it be counted as a plus for political office.

I, too, have noticed how many women around SaraTodd wear skirts...it IS trying to make a statement. But the only thing it tells me is that they aren't in touch with real women who don't wear skirts. It shows a very old-fashioned, antiquated idea of how women should appear. But the Republican party is a driving force in keeping women down.

To me , a women wearing slacks or pants looks more equal to men, who all wear pants except for a senator or two maybe

A woman wearing pants looks more like a business/political professional, looks like common sense prevails. I'm not saying women should never wear a skirt but there are times when pants are more appropriate. ...
