Lipstick LobbyList 10.31.2012

Connie Britton and Sarah Aubrey on what the women of Dillon, TX would think of Romney using the Friday Night Lights battle cry, "Clear Eyes, Full Heart, Can't Lose" on the campaign: 
"So as women, let's take 'Clear Eyes, Full Hearts' back and use it as it was always intended -- as a motivator for progress, power, and greatness. Let's use our clear eyes and full hearts to vote early. Let's use our clear eyes and full hearts to tell every friend, family member and neighbor about what's at stake for women in this election. What's at stake for all of us.
If we women make ourselves aware of the issues and make our voices heard, we most certainly cannot lose."
An honest, introspective piece on "Trying to 'Have It All' With a Nanny" by the amazing Erika Soto Lamb in the wake of the Lucia and Leo Krim tragedy in NYC.  Looking forward to more HuffPost pieces from her!

Via the Massachusetts NOW PAC Chair Christina Knowles recounting a powerful moment of Elizabeth Warren with a young girl at a recent event:
Denise's 8 year old daughter Mikaela was at the Warren event with us. She got a picture with Elizabeth, and E. Dubs introduced herself to Mikaela by saying: "I'm Elizabeth Warren and I'm running for senate because *that's what girls do.*" Ahhhhhh-mazing!
The Boston Herald never fails to disappoint.  They managed to be outrageously sexist and write a column on the women news anchors covering Hurricane Sandy.  Because Bianca's dress really was the important story....
