Barbara Lee speaks about her new book

I was in New York a couple of weeks ago and California Rep. Barbara Lee was at Hue-Man Bookstore to promote her book, Renegade for Peace and Justice. In the above clip I recorded, where she is joined by New York Rep. Charlie Rangel, Lee speaks about how veteran White House correpondent Helen Thomas inspired her to write the book, and why she spoke out about her traumatic experience with domestic violence.

As you may recall, Barbara Lee was the only member of Congress to vote against the Bush administration getting a blank check to run the so-called war on terror. In hindsight, isn't Lee the smartest chick in the game?!
