War on women: John Kerry refuses to say if Saudi women should be allowed to drive

This from a guy in the party that always harps on how much Republicans “hate women”:

Seeking to persuade the Saudis that the Obama administration does not take them for granted, Mr. Kerry, in an appearance at the American Embassy here earlier on Monday, described the kingdom as “the senior player” among Arab nations, a notion he reinforced when, at his news conference, he called Saudi Arabia an “indispensable” partner.

(Wary of inflaming Saudi sensitivities, Mr. Kerry sidestepped a reporter’s question about whether Saudi women should be allowed to drive, casting the debate as one “best left to Saudi Arabia.”)

Heh. Lurch will lecture Eastern Europe about why they should get rid of anti-gay laws, but when it comes to Saudi women being allowed to drive, that’s for the locals to decide. Kerry obviously knows who the masters are.
