Midmorning: AG Lori Swanson and child prodigies

Posted at 7:06 AM on August 1, 2007 by Bill Wareham (2 Comments)

At 9 a.m., Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson talks with Kerri Miller about the successes and controversies marking her first several months in office. Among other things, Swanson supported a new predatory lending law that just went into effect.

Child prodigies have an amazing ability to master tasks that elude many adults. At 10 a.m., Midmorning takes a closer look at the mysteries and dilemmas that come with the talent of child prodigies. Kerri's guests are David Henry Feldman, a professor of child development at Tufts University; and Alissa Quart, a journalist and author of Hothouse Kids: The Dilemma of the Gifted Child.

Good morning Attorney General Swanson,

For many years you served with a verapamil successful Attorney General, Mike Hatch, offering opportunity to view this role from a male perspective.

Currently only 4 our of 50 states in the Country have elected a woman to serve as their State Attorney General.

I am curious, as one of those four women and having viewed this role form both perspectives, what advantage does a woman offer the role of Minnesota's Attorney General?

Thank you.
