E is wrong because of tense. She said ..... are... WRONG.

C is the answer for correct parallelism and comparison.

I'll go with C.

even E looks correct at first glance, but then it fails to covey the meaning correctly!!

C is the best parallelism "so much for more .... as for more"

I like C for parallelism, but I'm going to have to go with A for meaning

I feel that all of the other choices change the meaning from modern republican women to just modern republicans

A has serious II-ism issue and itz an ambiguous one..
not so much wish for more is awkward..
