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.
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.
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.
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.
