Jessica Valenti of Feministing and BushvChoice resents becoming "fodder for tacky intern jokes" after posing for a picture with former President Clinton at a blogger lunch. What's worse, she says, is that "this comes from other women, other progressives, and other supposed feminists."

Unfortunately, efforts to objectify and marginalize women come from both sides of the political spectrum and everywhere in between. Jessica and I disagree on virtually everything, but she has my sympathy on this one. (And I say that not just because she's promoted my book.)
