'Hillary's women' reject McCain's VP choice


www.independent.co.uk

America's largest women's rights organisation delivered a snub to Sarah Palin's history-making candidacy yesterday by endorsing Barack Obama and Joe Biden's bid for power.

The National Organisation for Women (NOW) is 500,000 strong and hugely influential. The feminist organisation almost never supports a presidential candidate, but the Alaska governor's Christian fundamentalist faith and her opposition to abortion rights has forced its hand.

Other women's rights organisations are also campaigning against Governor Palin, pushed along by a spontaneous anti-Palin movement among women.

In Alaska at the weekend, a Welcome Home rally for Mrs Palin was dwarfed by a demonstration organised by Alaska Women Reject Palin, which was held on the lawn of a downtown Anchorage library.

So much for the only reason McCain picked Palin... to leech away disgruntled Hillary supporters.

Once again the conservatives mistake form for substance. His choosing a woman as a running mate might have worked if he had chosen a conservative woman of substance such as Olympia Snowe of Maine or Kay Bailey Hutchenison... whom whether you agree with their opinions or not... there is no doubt that they have not just experience but gravity...

...something no amount of spin will give to Palin.

The odds are the only disgruntled Hillary supporters Palin will help leech away lean to the right to begin with.
