Let's face it -- the Junior Woman Senator has far more experience than either Barack Obama and John Edwards.

And all things being equal (which I believe they are NOT -- the Junior Senator I believe has a long progressive history that outshines the two men running for Office), shouldn't we seriously put some thought and weight to the idea of electing the first woman President of the United States.

Experience Matters

To pretend that it doesn't is just plain naive in my opinion.  With 25 years of legislative experience, the Junior Woman Senator outstrips the 2 Male candidates by a huge margin.

She has held positions of leadership within the Democratic party and has worked to advance a Progressive agenda by working with the Republicans when possible.

Judgment Matters

The Junior Woman Senator has ALWAYS been against the war.  Don't let anyone tell You differently.  Her record is clear on this.  She has been on the right and progressive side of issues consistently even when it is difficult or unpopular.

I am sure she isn't perfect, but no one with as long a record as hers could possibly have not made a few mistakes; but overall, she is pretty damned great.

Compassion Matters

If You have ever seen the Junior Woman Senator, You will know that she feels the issues strongly and deeply and she has a profound sense of compassion and empathy for EVERYONE.  Watching her debate issues, one can not help but be moved, and if You aren't moved by her passion AND compassion, You are simply blinded by something -- whether it be misogyny, or racial hate or, I don't know what -- but not giving her due respect is ridiculous.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
