It is 8:58PM on Tuesday Jan 29. And I’m about to side with Ted Kennedy. NOW is upset because he had the gall to endorse a candidate that doesn’t have breasts.
“We are repaid with his abandonment!” the statement said. “He’s picked the new guy over us. He’s joined the list of progressive white men who can’t or won’t handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton.”
Could it possibly be that Kennedy, like others, is offended by Bill Clinton covertly drawing race into this election? Could it be that Kennedy, like others, finds Hillary to polarizing to be president? Could it be that Kennedy, like others, think it is time for a ‘fresh, new’ direction? I don’t like Obama. But, I love him over Hillary.
If NOW was really concerned with supporting women . . . would they support someone like Condoleeza Rice or Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (stongly pro-life)? I doubt it.
Is NOW unaware that for the first time ever, an African America has a legitimate chance of being elected President?
