    because certain groups (women, LGBT people, black people) are underrepresented in positions of power, and in a more general sense, historically screwed over by society at large. I think getting more of them into office is a valid aim. Now, I'm not going to be donating to EMILY's List anytime soon, due to the fact that they sometimes pick the less progressive candidate just because she's female (and also the fact that I don't have much to throw around). But I do generally look on them favorably as an organization.

    Yes, it is bread we fight for -- but we fight for roses, too! | Pro-transit young black urban progressive | SSP/DKE | -9, -7.79 | MO-05: come for the jazz, stay for the burnt ends | Yard signs don't vote.
