    And I'm not a woman. If this isn't a fight that gets the fight out, if this isn't a fight where women, and sane minded men, are not willing to stand with the president on sane policy and be vocal, if this ends up another position where the president takes a rational stand, and he get abandoned by the middle, and blown up by the right, then we can pretty much resign ourselves to no one on the Deomcratic side ever taking an even moderately progressive opinion again without first being berated into it. Obama could have not caused this fight, but he did it for the good of the country, if people just nod their heads as opposed to stand up and be heard then we're doomed and deserve to be so.

    There are only 2 things in life I believe about religion: There could be a God and I'm sure as heck not him.
