I’ve been thinking a lot about feminism thanks to posts by Shannon, Res, AG and a new blog I read, Shakespeare’s Sister. At best, I’ve been intellectually lazy about women’s rights lately. I am hesitant to think about what I’ve become at worst. Regardless, I just had this thought:
I want Obama to be the candidate because he is the best candidate. I really don’t want him to get the nomination because people don’t want to elect a woman.
I obviously have a lot of thinking left to do on the matter. It is not an easy discussion to have either; however, it is something I need to do.
What I can say is this: Regardless of who gets the democratic nomination, I am voting Democratic. Like Dean, I’m from the Democratic wing of the Democratic part, and this year I am going to follow through with it.
edit: Credit where Credit is due.
