In Brilliant Move, Obama Campaign Taps Sandra Fluke

I have big problems with Obama but as a pro-choice woman, a voter and a resident of the Denver metro area, I think this is brilliant.  It will be a hit:

President Barack Obama begins a campaign swing through Colorado starting tomorrow (Wednesday).  And he’s recruited Sandra Fluke to introduce him in Denver.

The now-graduated Georgetown Law student was not allowed to testify at a House Oversight And Government Reform Committee hearing on contraception in February.

Then, after radio commentator Rush Limbaugh later called her a “slut” and a “prostitute,” she made another exclusive appearance on The Ed Show to respond. President Obama called her the next day and offered words of support and encouragement.

After losing a boat load of sponsors, Limbaugh apologized, but Fluke courageously refused to accept it.  Fluke later endorsed Obama for re-election.

[...]

Fluke’s appearance underscores the Obama campaign’s focus on female voters, who could determine who gets Colorado’s nine electoral votes.

More…

And a triple bravo to Sandra Fluke.  I’m sure her life was hell while Rush was ripping her apart but she didn’t back down and she didn’t shut up like he hoped.  Amazing woman.
