Obama Official Admits Disappointment With The Small Role Women Play In The Administration
Obama Official Admits To Be “Slightly Annoyed By The Lack Of Women” Around Obama In “Key Meetings” And In His Cabinet. “Obama’s recent actions haven’t just offended those outside his administration. There’s also some resentment brewing on the inside. ‘I work in this administration, and I have to admit that I’m slightly annoyed by the lack of women around him in those key meetings,’ said one administration official. ‘I mean, c’mon, out of all those people, there’s one woman in the room?’ The official said the problem extended beyond the circle of his closest advisers and into the Cabinet. ‘ You mean to tell me there’s not one woman who [was] qualified enough to be secretary of State, secretary of Defense or even White House chief of staff? ‘ the official added.” (Amie Parnes, “Obama Runs Afoul Of Dem Base,” The Hill, 1/16/13)
