I am waiting for a feminist radical or a homosexual radical to campaign for Obama.
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:30 PM by AGirl
So we have had ex-gay gospel campaigning for Obama, we have a radical black preacher campaigning for Obama, I am waiting for a lesbian feminist radical to campaign for Obama, because we should reach out to everyone in Obama's world, right? Everyone should be part of the conversation and part of the movement to aim for the change we believe in. I am waiting.

1. They can join if they want.
But Hillary would attack him with that too.

4. So Obama doesn't surround himself with those people? He doesn't reach out to us?
We have to come to him? I get it.

15. Well, we had Gloria Steinem trashing John McCain's prisoner of war
experience, which was so politically stupid I couldn't believe it! Hillary's people had to come out and publicly disown her remarks.

5. Fair enough. I'm waiting for either of the above to campaign for Hillary.
obviously, Geraldine Ferraro does not count as a "feminist radical".
