"There's a feeling, you know, of sisterhood," explains Schroeder, a Clinton supporter who flirted with a presidential bid in 1988.
"There's really a general consensus that (Clinton's) gotten the short end of the stick when it came to media, and you have women knowing all along that women have had a tough go in politics," Schroeder added.
EMILY's List has spent nearly a quarter-century working to elect women who favor abortion rights to public office, and the majority of female House Democrats have endorsed Clinton. In the Senate, six of the female members have endorsed Clinton, two Obama and two are uncommitted.
The group has helped the Obama supporters, too. But Clinton by far is the brightest name on its marquee.
"It is sort of a man bites dog story when the women senators or congresswomen support Senator Obama," said Malcolm.
That's from AP. Hillary's suffered real bias. Barack? Not a damn bit. I know the idiot Dave Lindorff thinks Barack deserves the nomination because he did drugs and maybe for DUMB ASS WHITE TOY RADICALS that's a reason. I honestly don't see Barack's drug use as a plus. It didn't factor into my decision. If I thought about, it would actually be a minus because it was really stupid for a pampered school boy to do drugs. He wasn't facing any hardships . . . except being so dumb he couldn't get in as a legacy to his father's school.
He bombed in the debate and The Cult of Bambi is an uproar. They're having fits. If you don't get how bad Bambi bombed, don't worry, he gets it. He's declared no more debates. Of course not, he did AWFUL. He showed how stupid he was. He showed that he can give a pretty speech but he can't answer questions. He showed that he's unable to think on his feet. He demonstrated that he's inexperienced.
But, remember this, if the Democratic Party is stupid enough to give him the nomination, he won't be able to tell John McCain no more debates. He shouldn't be able to tell that to Hillary.
But understand, the two are neck-in-neck with Hillary having sewn up more Democratic voters. He can't afford to again expose the world to the fact that he's a complete and utter fraud. If he does, he might not be able to steal the nomination.
You lose the debate, what do you do? Blame the debate. He couldn't fall back on his false charges of racism this time. Smearing the media like that wouldn't play well. It would bite him in his cushy ass. Also there's not an established pattern for Charlie or George. So instead, he has to convince the country that there was a difference to this debate.
There was a difference: He got asked questions. The kid gloves came off. They've always been off with regards to Hillary. The media's gone to town on her over and over. All they did was ask Barack questions. He blew it because he couldn't answer them.
And his answer is "NO MORE DEBATES." Wasn't he the candidate who believed in talking to people? Only when he can control it. Like the current occupant of the White House, he needs pre-screened audiences.
That ugly Katrina vanden Heuvel was all over Bully Boy about his secrecy. But she won't point out Barack's secrecy.
She's not able to call it like it is. For obvious reasons. Last week, Katrina tried to play woman of the people by whining about voter disenfranchisement and, hypocrite that she is, she never stopped to think, "The voters in Florida and Michigan are being disenfranchised." Katrina vanden Heuvel, Katty-van-van, is a hypocrite. She's a fraud. And she's far from the only one.

On Tap: Hillary will visit North Carolina on Friday to participate in a conversation with Dr. Maya Angelou at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem.
That's a real candidate. That's a president the country could be proud of. Last night, Hillary took the tough questions and handled them beautifully. Barack bombed. He lost. Because he's a loser. And if the Democratic Party is stupid enough to give him the nomination, the whole world can see what a BIG LOSER he is come November.

We will be following the San Francisco trial involving wounded vets and the Department of Veterans Affairs. In this first class action lawsuit U.S. Veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder sue the VA, alleging a system wide breakdown in the way the Government treats those soldiers.
During this special broadcast we will be bringing our listeners live updates from the San Francisco federal courthouse, we'll speak with wounded Veterans attorney Gordon Erspamer, (taking this case pro bono because his father was permanently disabled in World War II and never received proper health care) and speak with Veterans advocates including Veterans for Common Sense, and Vets for America.
