Celeste; could you be more specific, with a bit more evidence, as to your admiration for Olympia Snowe? I suspect that your admiration was because she was a woman, and was tugging the Republican Senate caucus to the left.

And that it didn't really have anything to do with her supposedly being much-needed moderate in a politically polarized Senate.

But Celeste I want to give you a chance to prove me wrong. You can support a moderate, versus a political extremist, in the United States Senate, this year. And you can simultaneiously prove that your favoritism of women candidates doesn't override all other considerations. I am very, very serious.

The contest is the Massachusetts Senate race. The moderate is Scott Brown. The political extremist is Elizabeth Warren.

Celeste; what a golden opportunity to prove your solid credentials as a moderate!
