Hillary Clinton. Susan and other gals were instrumental in getting the 19th amendment passed, but she died before she could legally cast her vote. So, I will think of her as I enter my voting booth. I was for Edwards in 04 and stuck with him again now until a month or so ago (maybe I will vote for him in my state primary).

I think what brought this to a head for me today was Clinton putting a call out for Florida and Michigan delegates to be seated. She reminded me of Anthony and her tireless work with womens suffrage.
Anthony coined the phase failure is impossible, -suffrage rallying cry during that era. In relation to FL/MI, our democratic process has failed- because whatever you think of Clinton, it is voters, via their delegates, who are disenfranchised as the result of a dispute. Anthony would have been outraged and would have encouraged all work for them to be seatedthat I know! I hope Edwards and Obama do what is right and join Clinton in this call for enfranchisement of all voters.

Gender is obviously a factor for mea small one as my head keeps telling me to stick with Edwards, but my heart keeps tugging for Clinton. My gut tells me, gender will be a factor for others also. For others not.

And Blackness/race will be a factor for some in relation to Obama. To what degree I do not know.
