Repubs have lost young women forever [View all]

My daughter, 24, and I went to a popular local bar/restaurant after voting. We stepped outside after having dinner and there were three waitresses, ages 21 to 23, on their smoking break. My daughter knew one of them and asked, sort of jokingly, if she'd been a good citizen and voted. All three spoke up at once and said, basically, "Hell, yeah, we voted and we voted for OBAMA!" They were all excited and talking at once but the gist was this - You are not going to take away my birth control options. You are not going to outlaw abortion. You are not going to start another stupid war. You are not going to let the rich slide while I work my ass off. - Afterward, my daughter said she always thought her friend was pretty apolitical. I know I am in the blue state of Maryland but I don't know one young woman of voting age who would support a republican.
