. . . in 2009, the Dalai Lama said,
"The world will be saved by the western woman."
He later added, "Some people may call me a feminist . . . but we need more effort to promote human values - human compassion, human affection. And in that respect, females have more sensitivity for others' pain and suffering."
I don't normally use my Art Blog as a soap box, but today, with the announcement that Ms. Bachmann will enter the 2012 presidential race, I wonder if the Dalai Lama's prediction will come true. It started with Hilary (who had too much Clinton baggage) and then Sarah (who was too far in left field - left field not left wing), and now Michele Bachman . . . who knows?
