Women's rights groups endorse Obama for president
WASHINGTON - Women's rights groups endorsed Barack Obama for president Tuesday, asserting the historic selection of a female Republican vice presidential candidate does not make up for John McCain's lack of support on issues important to women.I realize that many younger women don't have a clue who these people are, what these organizations are all about, or why they didn't stand with Obama the minute Hillary Clinton turned over her primary votes to him. It was a freeking no-brainer, after all. Or why they hadn't leapt all over McCain's choice the minute it was announced.
Obama was also endorsed by leaders from Business and Professional Women/USA, the National Association of Social Workers, the National Congress of Black Women and the Women's Information Network. [ed. in addition to Feminist Majority and National Organization for Women]
In the spirit of hope and moving forward, let's just wait and have that discussion after November 4th. Let's just be very happy that we're all on the same page now. Let's figure out what we can do to really get this party started.
