A male veterinarian was recently appointed by Lester Crawford, acting director of the FDA, to oversee the Office of Women’s Health. Norris E. Alderson is an expert of animal science. A few hours later, that announcement was quietly revoked and Theresa Toigo was named the new acting director of Women’s Health.

Fighting for positions of power, jockeying for privilege, destroying hard fought gains for ill-gotten compromise, the power nodules are eating themselves. Hillary Clinton actually believed that Lester Crawford would approve over the counter emergency contraception?
