This is an excellent idea, Heidi.

As I said downthread, I believe in the efectivity of grassroot actions and will support them. Let's imagine the force that this can become, when it grows to a nationwide movement of woman focusing on the points you suggest.

Alwaysthinking

Agree. Agree. Agree. Great ideas for action. I used to use the Kennedy challenge as an example in planning efforts for my organization(s)and it is a powerful one. I think what has happened this year provides fuel for us to work even harder to send a woman to the White House.

Cyn

Wonderful ideas! Yes, the meme that we won't see a woman president in our lifetime has been pulling me down. I'd much rather be pro-active than re-active. It's time to reach out to others and make things happen rather than to sit and feel sorry for ourselves.

Brian Smith

There will be a woman in the Whitehouse within the next 24 years. It is a given. Perhaps the focus should be on what type of candidate you want rather than her gender. Putting a woman in the Whitehouse without regard for what she stands for would be a very hollow victory in deed.

Heidi,

We have set up a new forum which is a spin off of the HillaryClintonForum which recently changed direction.

The new forum is www.hillarysvillage.net. We place an emphasis on promoting and celebrating women in politics, pushing back at a biased MSM and providing a platform for action.

Although it is in it's infancy, (Opened Nov. 4th)we have already signed on over 500 members who are ready and able to take a proactive stance to further our agenda for a fair democracy.

You have our commitment to work with and assist you and others in our common goal of SWWH!

If you have a particular candidate you would like us to feature, promote and support, please let us know.

Sincerely,
SadStateOfAffairs

Some of us who are conservative feminists have started RedStateFeminists at http://redstatefeminists.org . We are planning to introduce "Ruby's List" to support the candidacy of conservative feminist female and male candidates for office. Count us in on helping to send a woman to the White House!

As Barack Obama tries to step up into his new role, it is up to the governor of Illinois to appoint a replacement senator to fill the vacancy. There is a very eligible woman I would like to see him appoint and that would be Tammy Duckworth, an Iraqi veteran with an amazing story.
Please contact Governor Rod Blagojevich at:

Well, it's all a bit clearer now. I was seething mad at EMILY's List for supporting women who didn't support Hillary Clinton, absolutely APPALLED when they switched over to Obama in a heartbeat. So guess why? People said to me "oh no, Emily's list is good, you have to give them money, they support democratic women candidates" Yes, they supported a whole SLEW of democratic women candidates who supported barack obama. Women who were apparently bought off relatively easy. Which brings us to Ellen Moran:


From today's Politico:

Ellen Moran, executive director of EMILY’s List, was named White House communications director by President-elect Obama on Saturday.

Moran, a well-known grassroots organizer, has also managed statewide Democratic campaigns and managed the Wal-Mart corporate accountability campaign for the AFL-CIO.

ah, spoken like a true sexist. "it's a given". Oh please, is it? And why the hell should we wait another 24 years? Why have we had to wait for the last 232 years? No, there are no givens in this misogynistic society.

joan

Heck NO, I don't want to wait another 24 years! I might be dead by then. It needs to be sooner than that for sure.

Those are some great ideas for a grassroots movement. I like the idea that we can actually do something besides waiting for someone to get there on their own.

To Brian: We have put a number of men in the White House without apparent regard to that for which they stood.

Chatblu to Brian:

DITTO!
