Lois Capps speaks to Convention

All of the women who wrote those letters are saying the same thing: We can't afford four more years of the same policies that have gotten us into these problems in the first place.

This convention is a time of joy and hope. At the same time, we are deeply saddened to be without one of our sisters in Congress-Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones from Ohio.

Congresswoman Tubbs Jones was a forceful advocate for economic empowerment, affordable health care, and quality education. We will miss her terribly.

Everything is on the line for women in this election. Barack Obama will deliver the change that the women who wrote these letters need, and all of us need. This November, when women vote, women win - and America will win with Barack Obama as the next president of the United States!
