Clinton Promises 50% Women In Her Cabinet

Just like Justin Trudeau...

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...
