  •  A sweet intelligent woman, sadly missed (10+ / 0-)

    A sweet intelligent woman. She made an impact. She made sacrifices and lived through tragedy to achieve amazing goals, and she compassionately let us all in on her insights.

    I met her in 2004 and at the time my daughter Hanna was running for seventh grade VP. Elizabeth spoke with Hanna on the phone. It was encouraging to me to see this woman inspire a young student to RUN! Her message was to stay involved in your community and do what you can. I joked with her that during the upcoming debate with Cheney her husband should pull out the neckline of his undershirt and say 'This used to be made in America in a mill, and I'm going to bring back those jobs!' She laughed and said she didn't want anyone seeing her husband's underwear. She saw how well the boxers or briefs thing went for Clinton!

      What a nice memory for your daughter, and for you.  :)

      I am continually amazed at how wrong highly intelligent people can be in the face of indisputable evidence which is inconvenient to their world view. ~ geomoo
