Dear Governor Palin:
Congratulations on your nomination as a candidate for Vice President of the United States. As a woman leader, I welcome your commitment to civic leadership. As a mother, I share your commitment to children and family. While I strongly disagree with many of your stated positions-ranging from your views on the environment to reproductive rights-I profoundly hope that you and I agree on the importance of education as a critical avenue in providing opportunity for our children and building the future of our society.
