I didn't vote for a woman in 2016

I voted for Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State, former U. S. Senator, the best vetted and hands down one of the most qualified people ever to run for the office.

I didn't vote for a black man in 2008; I voted for Barack Obama, former U. S. Senator, professor of constitutional law, and one of the most inspiring orators I had ever seen.

I didn't vote for a white man in 2004; I voted for John Kerry, former Secretary of State, former U. S. Senator, recipient of the Silver and Bronze stars, and anti-war activist.

I didn't vote for a white man in 2000; I voted for Al Gore, former Vice President, former U. S. Senator, one of the first to recognize the the coming of information technology, who sounded the alarm of global warming.

I will make electability arguments that will include factors such as race and gender, but only as applies to how it my help or hurt in certain demographics; none of that has anything to do with my personal preference. I want a capable, honorable candidate who can win. Period.

Comments like "too many penises" and "no more white guys" are simply bigoted, IMO, and I frankly cannot understand how they are permitted under the TOS.

Meghan McCain attacks Trump on Twitter

Jerry Emmett was a 6 year old girl when women won the right to vote

She's a lifelong Democrat who voted for FDR, and today she cast the Arizona delegation's votes for the first woman to become the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

That's when I lost it.

Suggested slogan for convention: "No More Hate!"

Lets chant that loud and clear, and show the world that we reject the veiled fascism the Republicans demonstrated.

This should be the biggest story of the election season

Black Lives Matter protest in Wichita changed to cookout with police

The Republicans have made their campaign about hate; let's make ours about working together.

Suppose the NSA needed a way to track people's movements without a warrant

and so they called up Nintendo and said, "We've got a great idea for a game!"

Sorry; that's what I get for watching Red last night.

Obama Says Anti-Cop Rhetoric Can Hurt Black Lives Matter

Source: Huffington Post

President Barack Obama condemned violence against police Sunday and even said excessively nasty rhetoric against police can hurt the cause of criminal justice reform.

“Whenever those of us who are concerned about fairness in the criminal justice system attack police officers, you are doing a disservice to the cause,” Obama said during a press conference in Spain on his way home from a NATO summit in Poland.

“But even rhetorically,” Obama continued, “if we paint police in broad brush without recognizing that the vast majority of police officers are doing a really good job and are trying to protect people and do so fairly and without racial bias, if the rhetoric does not recognize that, then we’re going to lose allies in the reform cause.”
