    Hoping to capitalize on high-profile debates over women's issues, President Obama is pointing out his administration's track record. During a White House conference Friday, he railed against Republican opposition to his health-care law, a move he says will kick a million young women off their parents' health coverage and will stop protecting women with pre-existing conditions.

You shouldn't be treated that way." A recent poll showed Obama leads Romney in female supporters within 12 key states.
