2. "It's not left versus right, it's about the few screwing the many."

I didn't have time to watch the whole 1 hour video, but I did notice that her actual speech is only 21 minutes of it (5:40 to 27:00) and the rest is Q & A. What I did listen to was great, with punchy lines like the above. She has a nice southern drawl, with a feisty style reminiscent of Ann Richards. But man, was she a heavy smoker or what? She seems to be out of breath.

7. K & R, the GOP is in a world of denial, esp. if they think women are going to go quietly while they

turn back time...more than ever this election is not about the president, it's about OUR rights, OUR democracy & getting those special monied interests out of our gov't, out of our health care, out of courts & out of our lives for once and for all.

We've got to put an end to the political candidates whoring themselves.

is the policy of the Republican Party, and we are not fighting back as hard as we need too.

15. I absolutely love these women:

Kathleen Turner, Molly Ivins, Ann Richards, Jennifer Granholme........and the historical women, like Mother Jones, Sojourner Truth, and so many others. Real women who absolutely vibrate with who they really are.
