Even tonight's splash page on whitehouse.gov features Rep. Nancy Pelosi (also, nice tilt-shift):
It's not that President Obama is flanked by a Republican; it's that this moment when our government is on display fails to prominently feature a woman. Sure, women are out there on the floor, but they aren't in the top three. This isn't just a bad visual: Women's representation in Congress decreased last year for the first time in three decades. And that is something we should be ashamed of.
