Get Set Club's Vanessa Enters Race for 2000 Presidential Election
Vanessa, one of the five dolls of GetSetClub.com, announced plans on Wednesday, July 5, to enter the year 2000 political race for President. Spurred by recent announcements made by her fellow female contender, she enters the race feeling better qualified and better-suited to be the first female leader of American dolls. She is also the first African-American doll candidate to enter this race.
Vanessa is an intelligent, educated woman who represents the true example of a well-rounded, All-American, modern female. With strong leadership skills and a high moral fiber, she's a business-savvy entrepreneur with a college degree who's capable of much more than just looking good in a business suit. As a community activist, she faces head-on the challenges today's women face in the political arena of the new millennium. She's seen the world. She knows the world. She's ready to lead the world. Included on her slate is Eva (Vice-President), Isabella (Secretary of State), Gia (Secretary of Treasury) and Fiona (Surgeon General), all fellow members of GetSetClub.com.
"It's about time we had a candidate who actually does something," comments Jennifer Baker, Vanessa For President Campaign Manager, "She's more than just pretty in pink. She's smart. She's independent. She's the only candidate in this campaign who can stand on her own two feet and I mean that, literally."
Barbie's campaign manager, Julia Jensen, believes that experience will triumph over youth. "Her depth of experience in 75 careers ranging from sports to space makes Barbie uniquely qualified to represent all girls."
Vanessa is one of five members of GetSetClub.com, a collection of five dolls with different skin and hair colors.
