THURSDAY: Pulling the ladies.

President Obama and Mitt Romney began their general election battle on the issue of women yesterday, a topic most near and dear to candidate, Newt Gingrich. The former Speaker is all but eliminated from the race but vowed to treat all women equally, in all respects, whether he is married to them or not.

Romney's camp initially had no answer on a call with reporters as to whether their candidate supported the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which supports equal pay for women. They later clarified that he absolutely supports "equal pay" for women, he just likes to be able to reconsider whenever anyone asks.

Ann Romney sniped back at a CNN contributor who claimed that she was not qualified to discuss women's economic issues since she never worked a day in her life, saying that she knows "what it's like to struggle." For example, she had to endure the driving bore of raising the five sons of Mitt Romney.
