After the vice-presidential debate, I posed the question whether some media commentators were right when they claimed that that women dislike it when candidates mix it up in debates and vigorously challenge each other.
I am not at all convinced that this is the case and usually put it down to the losing side in such exchanges trying to find a way to console themselves by finding a way to claim victory, because it seems somewhat patronizing to suggest that women cannot handle the rough-and-tumble of political discourse (or even discourse in other venues for that matter) and recoil with distaste when it happens.
Samantha Bee of The Daily Show sets us all straight on what women want.
