Election 2008 and the discourse of transformation

Whether John McCain or Barack Obama wins the Presidency next Tuesday, two things will be clear. First, the United States' electorate will be faced with recovering from a campaign that has left us emotionally overwrought, and in many instances, deeply scarred.

Feminists Draw McCain's Ire

McCain lashed out yesterday in Missouri against the “Feminist Left.” Frustrated he is losing the women’s vote big time he is supposedly “defending” Sarah Palin against the “Feminist Left.” What McCain is really frustrated about is that women are not fooled by his placing Sarah Palin on the ticket.
