That’s the only explanation that I can come up for this HuffPo article complaining that the Democrats are going to have between zero and one female governors in their ranks starting next January – with zero being the somewhat more likely number. Bless their hearts, but what did they expect? While Republicans will – admittedly, somewhat reluctantlly – grit their teeth and ignore a pro-choice candidate in states where the party has to take what it can get, the Democrats are getting pretty adamant that their statewide candidates not be pro-life. Particularly the female ones. Couple that with a general tendency for the Democratic party to want to reserve the good political jobs for white males and you can easily get this general result.
Personally, I think that it’s a pity that the Activist Left largely cannot conceive of a feminist also being pro-life, but it’s a sort of detached pity; after all, the end result skews in my side’s favor.
