Grahn's "On My Porch" Chat Transcript

The transcript for last Wednesday night's discussion at NancyLeeGrahn.com with the women of daytime on the Presidential election is now up.

Below are the links to the various topic and some interesting quotes from each.

Part I - Crisis on Wall Street
"...a vote for McCain/Palin is a vote not only against you, but against us, and worse, our children." - Nancy Lee Grahn

"We agree this is a crisis but McCain said the fundamentals are strong. He has been a de-regulator; he has taken many limits off Wall Street. He believes what's good for Wall Street is good for the economy." - Kimberly McCullough

Part II - Women's Issues
"If there was a male character on a soap opera that said a woman can’t make as much money as he does because she needed more education, that character would be considered a villain." - Nancy Lee Grahn

"The Republican party opposes advocating a women’s right to choose. Palin is for abstinence only education. They want to regulate women’s bodies, but yet not provide health insurance to protect them." - Bree Williamson

Part III - Women, Children, Veterans and Health Issues
"I think that one of the biggest differences between John McCain and Obama is how they treat children, health care and day care and helping mothers. They want to control reproduction, but don’t want anything to do with the kid after it’s born." - Heather Tom

"There are absentee ballots being sent out to voters that are invalid. People across the country are being 'caged'. Someone needs to make sure they know where their ballot will be sent." - Deidre Hall

Part IV - An Emotional, Important Time
"I’m a registered Republican. My whole family is very political, very Republican. I hear snickers in the room. You don’t have to vote your party. Just vote as a member of this planet. It is your responsibility to read about the issues." - Michelle Stafford

"I’ve been taking my 10 year old with me on the campaign trail. She’s been listening and learning. While in Montana, I bought her a stuffed moose for a souvenir. A man came up and asked her the moose’s name. She said he was Bill Billings from Billings, Montana. Without provocation, she added that Bill’s great grandfather was shot by Sarah Palin from a helicopter. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree." - Nancy Lee Grahn
