i feel so prescient

six years ago i wrote a long piece for a media and politics class that compared male and female politicians' appearances in style, versus news, pages of major media, along with some content analysis of news articles about women in politics. (did you know that when now-senator clinton introduced the health care plan in '94, a majority of major news outlets used the participial phrase "wearing..." in front of the sentence that should have begun "clinton said..."?) and then this morning i was browsing through the nyt when i came across this.
