Perusing through the blogosphere tonight, I discovered Aaron Sadler’s convention blogging. As a writer for Stephens Media, he has a decidedly Arkansas bent.

His latest post points out women senators with Arkansas ties. I thought this quote from Senator Clinton about Hattie Caraway was pretty funny — because it’s absolutely, stunningly true.

One day someone asked her why she never made speeches in the Senate, Clinton said. She said it was because The men have left nothing unsaid. Well, they may not have left nothing unsaid, but they left plenty of things undone.
