    ewww. Medea Benjamin. She’s not a great person,in person actually. I remember when I was helping to staff the Congressional Black Caucus’s Annual Legislative Conference, I took some time off to hear then Senator Obama speak and when he went to start down the receiving line, she pushed an elderly black woman out of the way in order to try to shake Obama’s hand. No class whatsoever.
