There it is, out in the open.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

If she wasn't already dead, I'd say to the camps with that one.

Surprised she isn't getting any defenders, given that;

1. She was the first female Senator (if only for a day).
2. Her views were essentially identical to Woodrow Wilson's, and he does get defenders around here.

1. is commendable but doesn't say anything about her as a person so much as about the governor who appointed her (and about him only very slight positive things considering how much of an HP he seems to have been as well). 2. is possibly a question of emphasis in that Woodrow Wilson was known for plenty of other things (most of which, granted, I personally strongly dislike as well).

Surely this isn't a roundabout way of throwing stones at a different discussion without actually confronting it. I really don't like it when people have something to say and instead of doing so, choose to start another thread on a different board, so the people involved in the real discussion might not actually see it (believe it or not, not everyone reads every thread). If you have something to say about Wilson, say it in the Wilson thread.

As for me, she's a FF. For the lynching. That's what you want me to say, right?

Big time HP. Heck, a SUPER HP for having similar views to Woodrow Wilson, another HUGE HP.

She seemed okay until we got to the lynching and white supremacy.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't she the last former slaveholder to serve in the Senate?

I think so, and it might depend upon how you count people who lived on antebellum plantations as very small children. Even if not, definitely one of the last.
