gilda reed, is in fact dr. gilda reed. dr. reed holds a ph.d. and is an adjunct instructor at the university of new orleans. dr. reed is certainly no dummy...so the question is why would dr. reed, who calls herself 'a strong louisiana democrat' remain a member of the party that failed to lift one finger to help her candidacy? dr. reed states that the democratic party went so far and 'prevented the unions' from donating to her campaign.

only a fool, a sucker, would remain a member of a party that treats its loyal members and candidates so shabbily.
