This is BOR's Video of the Day, or VOTD, our nightly video clip segment that hopefully provides you with a laugh or a chance to think at the end of the day.
Excuse me for a minute while I break into total Democratic fangirl mode — I met Elizabeth Warren tonight!! She was in town for a fundraiser along with four other fabulous females who are seeking federal office in the Senate. They were all inspiring, and honestly, y'all should support them in any way you can.
Hearing from Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (WI), Congresswoman Shelley Berkley (NV), former state Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp (ND), Congresswoman Mazie Hirono (HI), and instrumental advocate for the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Elizabeth Warren (MA) was inspiring — these are some really amazing human beings, and our entire government would be better off if all five of them are sworn in to the US Senate next January. They made it clear — a woman's place is in the House… and the Senate. Also inspiring? EMILY's List President Stephanie Schriock and Planned Parenthood National Political Director Amy Taylor, both of whom spoke of the unprecedented attack on women's health, and the need to elect strong women to fight back against Republican attacks on our basic reproductive rights.
Anyways, while I am still kvelling from hearing all of these amazing women first hand, here's Elizabeth Warren in an out-take from the Obama campaign's documentary “The Road We've Traveled,” talking about the challenges President Obama faced in his first term.
Help better things happen in his second term. Send these ladies to the Senate, y'all!
