In case there was still any doubt that NOW is not a women’s group as much as it is a Far Left abortion rights group this ought to settle it…
Sweetness and Light and The National Organization of Women is celebrating the defeat of the female candidate- Sarah Palin.
From Hope to Action to Victory
Below the Belt: A Column by NOW PAC Chair Kim Gandy

It’s only been two weeks since I stood in the drizzling rain and waited on line to cast my vote for hope and change. And the inauguration is still two months away, but already I can feel the shift. On Nov. 4, we the people elected Barack Obama the next president of the United States, and although he’s not yet in office, the act of making history and setting our nation on a new course has already been uplifting.
Women played a key role in this victory, voting in greater numbers than men, and casting their votes for Obama in higher percentages than men in nearly every state. Young people, African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic voters and LGBT voters added to the margin of victory with disproportionate support for Obama.
Now that we have an Obama-Biden administration to look forward to (honestly, Jan. 20 can’t come fast enough), the terrible funk we’ve been in for the last eight years has become even more apparent. George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were the opposite of hope. They were cynicism and fear and greed and destruction. Bush and Cheney wore the people down, sapped their spirit. They (and their “decider effect”) are the reason people lack faith in government and the political process.
