Barack Obama for America


Kucinich has freed us, by his words in Iowa, to choose another candidate with his blessings resting upon Barack Obama.
.
When you consider the differences between Obama and Edwards, taking into account the make-up of Congress they would have to deal with there’s not a lot there. They’re similar on every issue but I would give the edge to Barak on the war, foreign policy, immigration and civil rights.
.
When it comes to legislation The Congress has ideas about every issue. Clinton, Biden and Dodd will play great roles on all of these from their Senate seats.
.
Edwards voted for the war.
.
Obama has always been against the war.
.
I’m Illinois born and raised.
.
I thought about the elderly African American men and women I worked along side of when I was younger and how much Barack’s presidency would mean to all of them and how much his presidency would mean for the whole nation.

Barack Obama: Yes We Can


Iowa caucus victory speech


In the end I’ll vote for whichever one has the best chance of keeping Hillary out. It's very easy for me to be fickle over Obama and Edwards; Edwards and Obama.
.
If the nomination is decided by the time it’s our turn in Washington a vote for Dennis Kucinich would help encourage a place for his values and positions in the Democratic Party platform. It’s sad that if all the debates were held on radio he would be the front runner. He’s the winner of internet straw polls, the darling of progressives and has the right answer to most every issue. We’re now forced to choose between two ‘lesser thans’ and one more ‘lesser than’ than them. C’est la vie.
.
If Hillary wins the nomination vote for her especially when you consider how incredibly frightening and strange the Republican candidates are.

Thanks to Code Pink and Youtube we have a wonderful example of brave selfless women explaining, before the war, the problems it would cause and Senator Clinton strongly supporting that war.
