Media Yay, Amanda!

One of my favorite bloggers, Amanda Marcotte of Pandagon, has signed on to blog for John Edwards’s campaign—exciting news for Amanda, great news for Edwards. Amanda explains her decision to go to work for Edwards here, noting that her political obsessions— including “women’s rights, ending the war in Iraq, environmentalism, and restoring the American dream where climbing out of poverty and having a middle class lifestyle is an option available to everyone”--are right in line with her candidate’s. (My Stranger colleagues may disagree, but this pretty much sums up why I support Edwards too). Marcotte joins Kate Michelman (formerly of NARAL) as the second prominent feminist to sign on to Edwards’ campaign.
