Joan Walsh, Salon: "The New York Times turned up the volume on questions about the president's second-term Cabinet diversity. ... The real story was the photo that illustrated the piece: the president meeting with his top advisers, and every one of them that we could see was a man, nine of 10 white. ... With the loss of Hillary Clinton, who's being replaced (the president hopes) by Sen. John Kerry, his appointee, there will be no women in the top tier of the Cabinet. ... The Times analysis falls short by failing to mention that both of Obama's only two Supreme Court appointments have been women, one of them a Latina, and his judicial appointments overall have been balanced."
