Where are your priorities as a voting woman?

Political parties are clamoring to get women to vote, and to vote for their candidates -- anything else will be characterized as letting the the others take over Congress, so far and so on...Is the priority of women to Change or Stay the Course, or is it to empower ourselves for the long-run??? Women can do both by picking out the womens' races that need our help, according to the party we belong to. We have been burned way too many times by abandoning women to elect more white men for whatever reason, so in a year with so many women nominees (138--one less than 2004) we must make many MORE women winners. Otherwise, even Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House cannot make things happen for women when there are only 70 or so women members -- in Congress every vote does count! Please check out the Top Congressional races featuring women HERE, OPEN SEAT races HERE, and races involving women in the 19 "Taxation without representation states." Yes, indeed, there are a total of nineteen states that currntly do not send even one women to either house of the U.S. Congress -- and there are great chances to change that in AZ, HI, KS, NE, NJ, OK, and VT. You can either sit on the sidelines, or make a difference!
