The Coming Feminist Backlash? [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
MINNEAPOLIS — The founder of the DFL Feminist Caucus in Minnesota is saying
“no” to Barack Obama.
Koryne Horbal says she and other feminists are promising action that could hurt Obama’s candidacy if the disputed Florida and Michigan delegations are not fully seated at the Democratic National Convention.
If Obama becomes the nominee under those circumstances, Horbal says she and others will write-in Hillary Rodham Clinton’s name on the ballot in November instead of voting for Obama.
What is wrong with these people? I heard a radio program say that Horbal would rather elect McCain and have Hillary run in four years. I am not sure if that statement is true, but she, and the “others” needs to hearken back to NARAL’s buttons that said “It’s the Supreme Court Stupid.”
John Paul Stevens is 88 years old.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 75 years old.
Stephen Bryer will be 70 this year.
Add to that Souter who is in his later 60s and Scalia and Kennedy who are in their 70s, and there could be five or six nomination for the next president!
If Koryne Horbal is concerned with feminist issues, the first priority should be the Supreme Court. Hilary should be a little farther down the list.
