    and enjoyed her talk, which starts at the 24:50 mark in this video.   The session also included Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner.

    Mazie earned a laugh with this:

    "I think the Senate could stand more diversity, and I bring quadruple diversity to the Senate cause I'm a woman, I'll be  the first Asian woman ever to be elected to the U.S. Senate,  I am an immigrant, I am a Buddhist.  And when I said this at one of my gatherings somebody said "yes, but are you gay?" and I said "Nobody's perfect."

    •  I met her when I was at the Lihue airport (2+ / 0-)

      on July 5th. I was leaving for a trip to visit family. She was coming through security so I stopped and talked with her for awhile. I thanked her for being a progressive voice for us in Washington DC.
