What are your issues of importance?
For me, despite mine and my families health and financial needs, it is; no Iran war, return to constitutional order(kill fascism), an end to the occupation in Iraq, end torture and mistreatment of prisoners, no more extra ordinary renditions(disappearances), to renew our commitments to Afghanistan, bring 9-11 perpetrators to a proper justice and to reclaim our respect and dignity in the world. Energy, economics, health, education and environmental concerns follow closely.
I know it's quite a list which most Progressives share, maybe in a little different order of importance, but simular. These are all things which have been decimated during the Bush regime and will only continue to worsen if McCain were allowed to become president. We can't let that happen!
That is why for all of us who call ourselves liberals, progressives, democrats, independents, or fed-up Republicans the single most important issue, on the top of everyones agenda must be getting Barack Obama elected president, with a Democratic Congress.
There will be plenty of time for fighting on the issues after the inauguration, especially with the conservative-district Blue Dogs compromising with the far right, so often. We're passionate Democrats who do love nuance and are willing to go through the struggles to have all these issues work best for the American people.
Also,I would like to add praise for Representatives Kucinich and Wexler along with Senators Fiengold and Dodd for doing the important work of keeping the unlawful nature of the Bush administration before the American people. Since he has aligned himself so closely to the Neocons, McCain will be more of the same.
The anti-Iran war community(special kudos to Code Pink) must keep this issue constantly before our beat-up and capitulating Congressional leadership as often and as loud as possible. If Bush is foolish enough to attack Iran before November, all bets are off on how the squishy middle will react.
Iran isn't helping itself by meeting bravado with bravado and word bombs with word bombs. I fear all they're doing is playing into lusting Neoconservative hands.
