Victory in the Form of Candy Crowley

Posted August 14, 2012 by Marcy Twete in Leaders We Adore

Margaret Mead famously said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” So she said, and so it will be. A few weeks back, we posted about such a small group – a group of high school girls from New Jersey who started the petition to make a change. They wanted to see a woman moderate a Presidential debate for the first time in 20 years. And whether it was indeed their influence or something else all together, we’d like to think that our signature on their petition (now marked “victory” on made that difference.

It was announced yesterday that CNN’s Candy Crowley will be the first woman in two decades to moderate a Presidential debate. And might we say, it’s about damn time! I know I’ll be tuned in on October 16th to watch Ms. Crowley grill Obama and Romney. Will you?
