Michelle Obama and Ann Romney's Convention Speeches Highlight Women's Role as Moms, not in the Workplace

The Huffington Post - The Blog: Michelle Obama, Moms and the Media, by Karin Kamp:

And the media seemed to largely ignore these issues as well, despite some moments from the conventions that could have clearly worked as news hooks. . . .
