82. The young women DON'T get it, do they?!
I don't understand it. I live in a college/military town and most of the young girls are walking around, proudly displaying their "Obama" tee shirts and buttons. If you ask them why they'll tell you that HRC is "bitchy" or make comments about how she gives women in general "a bad name."

I'm 33 years old and I thank each and every person who has helped along the movement-and I hope that I will eventually do my fair share. I grew up reading about Susan B. Anthony, Florence Nightengale, Belva Ann Lockwood, Eleanor Roosevelt and so many others. And I've passed these stories along to my seven year old daughter.

HRC is the woman I used to dream of becoming. I might not agree with all her policies but I respect her. She has my vote not because she's a woman but because I feel that she best mirrors my views. She is the woman I used to dream of becoming not because she is a woman but because she is the best choice.

I used to think about the day that we would have a viable female candidate. That day is here and America still doesn't seem to be ready. Don't you think there's something wrong?
