Election Day

November 4, 2008 | NeW Staff

Election Day has finally arrived!  This has been an exciting campaign season, especially in light of a conservative woman being a part of a major party ticket.  The election shows that conservative women have come a long way in politics!  Take some time to reflect on where we have come and where we want to go before you vote.

I have been reading over the McCain and Obama campaign websites.  Under “issues,” Obama’s website has a “women” issue area.  The McCain’s website does not, but similar information can be found under other issue titles.  I think this indicates that the candidates approach issues differently as Obama views specific issues as “women’s issues,” while McCain views all issues as women’s issues. This has long been debated.

Happy voting!
