79. I'm 54 years old
Edited on Fri Feb-22-08 05:26 PM by BlackVelvet04
and year after year I have held my nose and voted for some man I didn't believe in as a candidate. Good God, Kerry just about did me in, BUT I worked for him and voted for him. NO FUCKING MORE. The Democrats FINALLY have a viable woman candidate so what do Kerry and Kennedy do? They push a rookie black Senator to the forefront and pit the blacks and women against each other. My question is WHY? No longer can the Democrats take my vote as a woman for granted. I'm furious, I'm disillusioned and I'm hurt.

I've worked for the better part of my life for women's rights and if the Democrats can't get behind a great female candidate, and the young women don't appreciate what we fought to bring them then they will have to get off their asses and fight for it themselves.

Obama WILL NOT get my vote. If he thought he was getting Hillary's votes....and he was arrogant enough to say so....he can think again.

I wrote all the superdelegates and encouraged them to vote for Hillary. If you guys don't mind I'm going to post my letter.
