Essential Estrogen: EMILY's List officials 'cautiously optimistic' on Greenwald, other endorsees

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

There are some who believe that progressive women lost their chance to
make history in 2008 when Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton ended her
presidential bid, but EMILY's List organizers disagree. "If we add
nine Democratic, pro-choice women to the [U.S.] House this cycle --
and when I say 'this cycle,' I mean the entire cycle including special
elections -- that would be the second-most in the history of the
United States," said Jonathan Parker, EMILY's List political director,
during a conference call with women activists on Monday. "It seems
kinda hard to believe, but that's how tough the work is that EMILY's
List is doing. The [gains] in 1992 would be the most, of course, but
this would be the second-most."
