Indeed. NOW and the FM have fallen down on the job. They proffered a bribe, rather than negotiating a settlement. The bribe has backfired. Because now that they have given away their endorsements (and their power) they have nothing left to negotiate with.

Both organizations have thus, rendered themselves obsolete.

And I can't even figure out why? What was to be gained by endorsing an all male ticket for the first time??

I received a phone call from NOW last Friday asking for a donation. I informed the person that I would never support NOW again after being a member for 30 years due to their behavior in the election. The person asked what did NOW do - I explained the endorsement of Senator Obama and the the disrespect towards Senator Clinton. That this went against my belief. It was a very satisfying call for me.

I now only support women candidates directly - not through organizations.

One interesting thing about every women's rights group's endorsement of Obama/Biden is that every single one of them ignored McKinney/Clemente. Both women are very liberal progressives, so they can't use the lines they used against Palin. It's really astonishing that a major female ticket got no support from women's rights groups!

The truth of the matter is NOW and Feminist Majority, are not for women. They are for NOW and Feminist Majority....and that's all. It was mistakenly perceived in the organization's best interests to side with the Power Elite. But they always have. I remember when Gloria Steinem and Ms magazine dumped Chisholm for McGovern back in 1972....how did that work out for women?
