Midmorning: The conservative soul and women at war
Posted at 7:41 AM on October 18, 2006 by Bill Wareham
Conservative commentator Andrew Sullivan says the Republican Party has lost its way on the war in Iraq, lower government spending and taking responsibility for scandal. Sullivan is Kerri Miller's guest at 9 a.m. Wednesday. His new book is "The Conservative Soul: How We Lost It, How to Get It Back." He blogs at The Daily Dish and is former editor at The New Republic.
At 10 a.m., Kerri examines women at war. More women have died in Iraq and Afghanistan than in any other war, and yet these deaths are not generating much public reaction. Midmorning examines the public perception of women in the military and what it means that news of female fatalities in Iraq no longer shocks the public. Kerri's guests are Joshua Goldstein, professor emeritus, School of International Service, American University and author of "War and Gender: How Gender Shapes the War System and Vice Versa." Also, Col. Barbara Lee, a board member of the Alliance for National Defense.
