Nice to see Rachel Maddow hold up Canada's Justin Trudeau as a role model on how to do gender equality in government.

MADDOW: Canada has a new prime minister, Justin Trudeau. He promised when he took office that he would have a cabinet that was 50 percent women, and then he did it. He made good on his promise. Would you make that same pledge?

CLINTON: Well, I am going to have a cabinet that looks like America, and 50 percent of America is women, right?

MADDOW: So that's a yes?

CLINTON: [nods yes]

Quite a contrast from how I expect a Donald Trump White House would look. You know, with all those young ladies transcribing tweets during the day.

Maybe Mitt Romney could lend him those binders full of women...

Can you help us out?
