Democratic Speechwriter

My fellow No Quarter writer, Ani, has an OUTSTANDING piece at No Quarter today. Here is the beginning of it:

Democratic Speechwriter Rejects Party and Votes McCain/Palin

Washington D.C. speechwriter Wendy Button aptly says "So Long, Democrats," in her piece appearing in The Daily Beast. Ms. Button has written for Senators John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Barack Obama, as well as other national and international leaders. She really tells the ‘new’ Democratic Party where to go. Her words are worth your time:
Since I started writing speeches more than ten years ago, I have always believed in the Democratic Party. Not anymore. Not after the election of 2008. This transformation has been swift and complete and since I’m a woman writing in the election of 2008, “very emotional.”

Not only has this party belittled working people in this campaign, it has also been part of tearing down two female candidates.

I HIGHLY recommend you read the rest of this excellent piece by clicking HERE. Thanks!
