Rocket Man, I think the

Rocket Man, I think the fear is that this issue could hurt Republicans with women willing to vote for them — married women who are politically in the middle-of-the-road. The damage would not be great if the Republicans could get their message out — Title IX is a good concept that, under the Clinton administration, went too far, and correcting the Clinton excesses would not materially affect women’s sports. Moreover, the boys who cannot wrestle at the intercollegiate level because of the current Title IX enforcement regime have mothers who, presumably, are not pleased. However, the feminists and their media supporters have gotten such a head-start on this issue, and the “soccer moms” are such important swing voters, that it seems understandable (albeit unfortunate) that the White House wants to proceed very cautiously on this issue.
