Today over at the Huffington Post, Swanee Hunt, author of Half-Life of a Zealot and This Was Not Our War, writes about what women supporters of Hillary Clinton need to do now. Hunt, an active Clinton supporter and fundraiser (she was Ambassador to Austria under Bill Clinton), writes, "We women who supported Hillary know that Barack Obama is brilliant, talented, and visionary, and that he carries our brief. That's at a rational level. But at a gut level, we were long past
ready for a new era of women's leadership. So we need a personal rigor
to return to the issues, to recognize the clear choice that faces us in
November. To stay home, or to vote for John McCain, is a betrayal of
all we, and Hillary, have stood for these long months."
