Barry Goldwater, 20 years ago:

From an interview in the 25 April 1988 issue of the New Yorker: (p70)
"Women have lived in the shadow of men for centuries, and it's not easy for them to step out of that shadow. Some of the best people I've served with in politics are women. One day, we'll have a woman President - not because she's a woman but because she's demonstrably better - but I won't be here to see it. They criticized Pat Schroeder for crying when she pulled out of the Presidential race. Well, if you haven't got any emotion you're not worth a dime."
