When the first lady is attacked and called a feminist nightmare for embracing her role as "mom-in-chief" -- despite her leadership in key policy areas like stemming the childhood obesity epidemic, increasing access to healthy food and aiding military families and veterans -- it's time to call foul.  The real feminist nightmare is when women are undermined because they are mothers -- particularly because more than 80 percent of women in our nation have children by the time they're 44 years old.
