Super women?

There's lots of backroom maneuvering on Capitol Hill to decide who will sit on the so-called "super" committee.  That bipartisan group of twelve will be charged with finding a trillion and a half dollars in cuts over the next decade.  If they fail, automatic cuts split between defense and domestic spending will kick in. 

There's a lot at stake.  Lobbyists are moving quickly.  So just who should be on that committee?  A blogger at Forbes thinks at least half the members should be female:

What do you think?  Are women better at reaching concensus than men?
