I often try to understand the people who make up the political opposition to my point of view. After all by understanding what motivates them, there is a chance to turn their assumptions against them, or in increasingly rare cases these days, persuade them to my point of view. Which makes folks like Donna Milo even more of a cipher.
Ms. Milo is a Republican who is running to unseat Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz this cycle. What makes Ms. Milo different is that she is a transgender woman. I am really pleased the any transgendered person is running for office. Here in my hometown a transgendered woman has been running for Councilor at Large for our City Council for a couple of cycles. Pam Bennett came in 4th in her bid to be a Council member.
