Publisher's Notebook: Want the job done? Hire a woman



So, while John Boehner, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell and Ted Cruz stand on the Capitol yard and see which one can pee the farthest, we should put our faith, trust and authority behind women who don’t feel the need to mark their territory.

I’m talking about women such as Republican Senator Susan Collins, who put together a bipartisan group of women to help break the political impasse and end the government shutdown.

“What I find is with all due deference to our male colleagues, that women’s styles tend to be more collaborative,” Senator Collins said in an ABC News interview after the vote to end the stalemate.

I certainly can vouch for the collaborative styles of women in the workplace and in civic and community endeavors.

More women in charge in Washington will work just as well.
