Addressing the “Women Vote 2012” summit in Colorado this weekend, actress and Obama campaign co-chair Eva Longoria told a group of 400 women “there is no way you can vote Republican” if you’re a woman.
“I don’t think it’s a hard choice if you’re a woman,” she said.
Some willful minds on Twitter have interpreted “can’t” as a challenge rather than a foregone conclusion. No way? Way!

Longoria’s speech reportedly did not specify if men could vote for the party of their choice.
Longoria, a People’s Choice Awards winner for her work on “Desperate Housewives,” was nominated for another award following her comments.
