Pappas on Kennedy

“This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for women’s rights, women’s voices, women’s equality, women’s authority and our ability – indeed, our obligation - to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who ‘know what’s best for us.’”

That's Marcia Pappas, the president of NOW New York. I reckon she wasn't so excited when Elizabeth Dole was running her short-lived presidential candidacy, probably because Liddy wasn't the "right kind" of woman. National NOW offered a formal statement, essentially saying We like Hillary, but Ted can vote for whomever he wants.
