have a one man in the room. Our subject today is, if you were in aroom with Senator Obama and Senator McCain, what issues wouldyou want to discuss with them that we should all be thinking about?So, without further adieu, I’m going to turn it over to Susan Altshuler.She will introduce herself and tell us why she is here today.Susan Altshuler: Hi, my name is Susan Altshuler and I’m a member of the Women’s Enterprise Network and of the I-Open team. Goodmorning. I think the subject today is very important because…thiselection, I think is very important, for women especially, because of health care issues, equal pay for equal women [work], equalopportunity for jobs, and also for the economy, because we are allaffected by the economy, and especially women because a lot of times because they make a lot less than their male counterparts, andwe, a lot of us have families to raise, and I think that the economy isgoing to be a huge issue going forward. And, I would like to askSenator Obama and Senator McCain, what they would do about theeconomy and how are they going to bring back jobs to this countryand how are women, especially single women, going to raise their children and be able to provide for them?Gloria Ferris: Thanks, Susan. Mary Beth?MaryBeth Matthews: Hi, I’m MaryBeth Matthews and I’m also amember of the Women’s Enterprise Network. I am a teacher and Iteach at the Cleveland Municipal School District. Why am I heretoday? Because, gee, I’m always here. But of course for the topic,that is very relevant. My focus is on jobs. I would like to hear morespecifics from the candidates and what they are doing to get jobs.Gloria Ferris: Alice?Alice Merkel: Hi, I’m Alice Merkel, a Chagrin Falls High Schoolstudent, I’m a Junior, and I’m also a part of the Women’s EnterpriseNetwork.

student, we constantly are dealing, talking about, gossiping if you will,about the Election and how it’s going to affect the downswhirlingeconomy. I want to hear them actually come out and say, you know,“We have messed up and we’re going to fix it one way or another.”Tim Ferris: Hi, there, I’m Tim Ferris and I’m married to Gloria and I’vebeen a fan since the first day, since the first recording of theWomen’s Enterprise Network. And the reason I’m here today isbecause someday when women take over the world, not that theydon’t control it already, I want there to be somewhere a record that Iwas on the women’s side at the early stage. That’s why I’m heretoday. What I’d like to do, is just make sure everybody reads the Oct16 (2008) Rollin Stone that has a marvelous piece of journalism in itabout Senator Obama; a great piece of investigative journalism.Gloria Ferris: Okay, well, I guess my reason for being here is that Iwas one of the ones who chose the topic. I believe that when we seethe candidates, you can tell that they are reacting to polls and to whatthey see as expediency to either turn down the another candidate or  just throw out things, that, on healthcare, you know, “I’ll give a fivethousand dollar health care tax credit” that’s the ticket, and everybodywill want that because that will help them with their health care. But,we don’t hear a lot of substantiation, and I also think that Town Hallmeetings are a joke. They never listen to the people who come, thepeople who come are allowed to ask a question, and then they givethis two minute answer that “…somebody rebuts it…”I disagree withyou”…”you didn’t vote that way in Congress”…Tim Ferris: Wait, Gloria, for example, and pardon me for interrupting…Gloria Ferris: Yes?Tim Ferris: Are you saying this is pre-arranged, that people are pre-selected, pre-screened?
