This is incredible. Dolores Huerta, Medal of Freedom Honoree. Yep, this woman who freely admits being a devoted socialist and admirer of Hugo Chavez is Barack Obama's idea of a person deserving of the Medal of Freedom.
Are socialists big on freedom? I bet she was in attendance in 1998 when Obama was one of the featured speakers at the Democratic Socialists of America rally.
