Go Sister GO!!!!

Geraldine Ferarro lets her emotions do the talking - The Daily Breeze:
"'I think what America feels about a woman becoming president takes a very secondary place to Obama's campaign - to a kind of campaign that it would be hard for anyone to run against,' she said. 'For one thing, you have the press, which has been uniquely hard on her. It's been a very sexist media. Some just don't like her. The others have gotten caught up in the Obama campaign...."
Yes the media has been VERY biased and a HUGE factor in this race .... probably TOO huge. I have got to say, she was not my first choice -- not because she was a woman but because I didn't like the way she did things .... but I like her more than Obama, who doesn't have the background for the position yet ... YET.

..."If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position," she continued. "And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept." Ferraro does not buy the notion of Obama as the great reconciler...."
Wow, I can not believe she came out and said what so many Clinton supports and Republicans are thinking, but its very true. Although - I'm not sure I agree that he wouldn't be in this position if he were white.
If the country isn't ready for a woman, it wouldn't matter what color her opponent was, she'd still lose.

I do think though that if he were white, Edwards would have done much better; but at this point in the race its more gender based then racially based.

"I was reading an article that said young Republicans are out there campaigning for Obama because they believe he's going to be able to put an end to partisanship," Ferraro said, clearly annoyed. "Dear God! Anyone that has worked in the Congress knows that for over 200 years this country has had partisanship - that's the way our country is."
Well ... she does have a point. If we didn't have differing parties we would just be ... Cuba. USSR. China. Iran, no wait, they are becoming more democratic.
You get the picture.
Well somebody had to say it.
