23. i don't think that matters
Edited on Tue Jan-29-08 03:04 PM by Bodhi BloodWave
If she is for Hillary she is good/right, if she is also against Obama or some of his supporters thats twice as good(least thats the impression I've gotten from earlier posts )

Personal view: NOW needs to get rid of Marcia Pronto, or atleast the national NOW needs to distance themselves from her statements(i am assuming there is a national aspect and not just branches)
