This video is great in and of itself, but to hear Elizabeth Dole say at the end that those who would use gender as an election tool are, well, tools, is priceless.

So let me get this straight. In 1984, the GOP thought women were smart. In 2008, not so much.

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.

    the video of Sarah Palin saying that Hillary's "whining" turned her off.  Then juxtapose that with the pandering rhetoric from the Republican convention.  The issue isn't (entirely) whether Republicans were principled then and not now.  It's that they are so desperate that they're saying whatever it takes.  

    We're long overdue for a woman in the Oval Office (or the Naval Observatory), but the Republicans have nominated the wrong woman, and are using the wrong issues. I'm a guy, but I feel pretty confident that I'm right.

    I support Barack America and his trusted sidekick Joe Delaware!

    an excellent pick for McCain (at least Republicans go).  Obviously I don't agree with Elizabeth Dole on any real political issues, but her experience far exceeds that of Sarah Palin.

    and thought "wow," and wanted to get it posted ASAP. Maybe I'm wrong, but when you get "whiner," "hope," and "don't pander to women" from Republicans 25 years ago...

  •  "Liddy" (0+ / 0-)

    "Liddy" is a term of endearment.  I'd suggest changing your title to Elizabeth Dole.  Not much endearment for her here, imho.
