Our governor?

Last Wednesday's Citizen featured a bit of political analysis borrowed from USA Today on the relative ease with which female governors, such as Janet Napolitano, get re-elected.

To quote:

"Jeanne Shaheen, director of Harvard's Institute of Politics and a former three-term governor of New Hampshire, says female leaders tend to be "more consensus-building, more interested in getting input from other people and less interested in taking credit." She adds: "Women don't often have the need to be macho, to put it very bluntly."

Our Janet? Janet Napolitboro? The governor who took a macho stand just about for its own sake on the education corporate tax credit, and then only let it pass without her signature?
