  •  Wonderful diary, Thank you! (4+ / 0-)

    Right now, I share my time between two states, both represented by two female senators each (and one currently has a female governor). It's a tremendous source of pride that they're not just females but Dems who work to protect, support, and expand rights, not shrink them.

    For most of the RNC convention, I felt like a sub-motif was "look America! Minorities and Women! We haz them!". And someone would dutifully come out on the stage, utter a few platitudes, then leave. But then again, the guy at the top of the ticket, his speech was mostly platitudes. There were two speeches at the whole RNC that I thought were any good, even if I totally disagree with their politics, one given by a woman (both given by Latinos).

    But our women, oh! They spoke from their hearts. They spoke of their experiences. They spoke of their valleys and their mountaintops. They showed how politics do matter in the lives of everyday people. That decent dedicated politicans  work hard in concert with charitible organizations, listening  to the voices of  regular people like military moms students, and the echoes of ancestors who told them, this is your legacy: leave society better for those who follow you.
