Super Mom?

Articles like this one from Time magazine, amaze me. I am stunned by the amount of profiling that occurs for the American voter: the precision and alaysis, catergorization, classification and observation is beyond my capacity of understanding.

I wonder if this kind of effort went into to profiling Egyptian moms what are the pseduo labels we would come up with? But I guess thats the thing about democratic elections, it makes you care about who's cheering you on. Even if it is sorta reluctantly...
