Sandra Fluke: Politician?

A New York event for the Women's Campaign Fund honored retiring Sen. Olympia Snowe and sparked questions about Sandra Fluke’s potential future in politics. “Our sons must grow up seeing women walking the halls of Congress,” said the Georgetown law student who was villified by Rush Limbaugh for advocating employer-covered birth control. “Because then they will know that if you want to call a woman a name, you have three options: congresswoman, senator, or Ms. President.” When the organization’s president suggested Fluke may be “the youngest-ever elected U.S. senator in American history,” Fluke simply smiled and waved off the audience’s applause.
