    The only thing the GOP wants women for is to birth babies and cook food.

    This is very refreshing--I hope these women are successful in promoting women candidates. The article doesn't mention what percentage of Utah Republican legislators are women. It's something appalling like 6%, far far below the national average. So the Utah Republican women have a further way to go than Republican women in other states. I wish them all success! The governance of the state of Utah can only improve as more women are involved.

    I agree with majority of your post.

    Just two points:

    Hillary Clinton made history by being the first woman to run for president.

    Sarah Palin made history for running for VICE president.

    Food for thought.

    I just hope that the women coming into power will work for the benefit of women and to preserve women's rights. Somehow, though, I don't see that happening. Gayle Ruczica and her ilk would have a fit if they did.

    Now all that needs to happen is for these Utah women to unite to abolish the male dominated caucus system...

    "The only thing the GOP wants women for is to birth babies and cook food."

    Kind of a generalization isn't it? There may even be one or two Democrats out there in California who wouldn't put women down for wanted the joys of motherhood.

    Didn't she drop "Green" from her name when she divorced? I don't know any divorced women who retain the last name of a former husband when they remarry.

    Um, RanchHand, Greene isn't her former husband's name. It's her maiden name. Her former husband's name was Waldholtz. But I'm pretty sure she needs to do more than just drop his name to get away from the credibility problems created while she was married to him. Surely, Utah Republican women can find a better standard-bearer. Or can they?

    Greene is her birth name. The former husband's name was Waldholz (sp?).
