Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter

Dante had this sign hanging on the gates of Hell. Then inside he had level after level of evil doers. I guess he missed one. As the BBC reports:

"There's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other," says former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. The comment was supposed to help Hillary Clinton but it has also exposed her problem appealing to women voters. 

She must be the Czech version of Dante. Now I like Prague a great deal. It has one of the oldest Universities, founded in 1348, it was the home of Kafka, its people managed to knock off the number 2 in the SS, they make great beer, fantastic cars, brilliant minds.  But this accusation of eternal damnation for voter's choice may be even a bit too much for even Dante.

The response from the international press was quite interesting. It is worth the read.

Oh yes, and Cerberus, perhaps for this candidate it was the Investment Bank and not the dog at the gate!
