Penance: Since November, more than two dozen women-of all ages, but mostly in their twenties-had approached me in restaurants, theaters, and stores to apologize for not voting or not doing more to help my campaign. I responded with forced smiles and tight nods. On one occasion, an older woman dragged her adult daughter by the arm to come talk to me and ordered her to apolo- gize for not voting-which she did, head bowed in contrition. I wanted to stare right in her eyes and say, "You didn't vote? How could you not vote?! You abdicated your responsibility as a citizen at the worst possible time! And now you want me to make you feel better?" Of course, I didn't say any of that. These people were looking for absolution that I just couldn't give. We all have to live with the consequences of our decisions. <p><a href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/165278063702/quitefranklytv-salt-for-years-is-this-really" class="tumblr_blog">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="https://quitefranklytv.tumblr.com/post/165277586244/salt-for-years" class="tumblr_blog">quitefranklytv</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Salt for years</p></blockquote> <p>Is this really from her book?
