It is with great enthusiasm that I announce today, on behalf of the nation's oldest and largest women's rights organization, that the National Organization for Women Political Action Committee (NOW PAC) proudly endorses Sen. Barack Obama for President of the United States. . . .
National Organization for Women PAC Endorses Obama-Biden
It is rare that NOW endorses any political candidate.
Since there is a conservative, anti-women woman on the GOP ticket, the National Organization for Women has taken steps to publicize their belief that Barack Obama is a better chioce for the women of America than John McCain.
Any platform that wants to restrict access to reproductive freedom, and wants to promote abstinence as a viable form of birth control to women, is an intrinsically anti-women platform, even if the message is being delivered by a perky, small-town mom.
I know there are women who resent Obama's victory over Clinton and will never see it as a failure by Clinton but as another conspiracy by the old-boy-network (of which Hillary Clinton is a member); but, this is the time to put that resentment aside and make a deliberate choice to support, advocate, and vote Obama for President.
Obama does reflect change, no matter how much the pundits and pro-business Democrats complain that he is more of the same. He will change the type of person nominated to the Supreme Court, and that alone is reason for all thinking Americans to reject perkiness and motherhood as legitimate characteristics of an administration.
Do we need a changing of the guard in Washington that would be represented by an Obama election, or do we need a little perkiness in the White House that would be represented by a McCain election?
