The Other Victoria

Here's an unusual item up for auction:

Victoria Woodhull published it as part of her 1872 bid for the presidency -- the first ever by a woman -- running as a candidate of the Equal Rights Party. As a magazine editor she advocated free love, suffrage, and was behind the first US publication of the Communist Manifesto.

It is, I'm guessing, rather less wishy-washy than your average campaign hack job.
