Yes We Can
I'm awfully inspired by Barack Obama's campaign. After eight painful years of GW Bush, nearly fourteen years after the Republicans took over Congress in 1994 and shut down any hope that government would do the right thing, this country needs inspiring. But Barack Obama is more than an inspiring speaker, he's a super-smart guy, and he's got the right policy priorities. No doubt Hillary would also be a vast improvement over GW Bush, but it's not true that there's no difference between her and Obama. Here's a comparison of their votes during the time they have both been in the Senate.

If you are lucky enough to be able to vote in a Democratic primary tomorrow, please get out there and do it.

Current Mood: hopeful hopeful

Love love love the icon. I'm going to use it for my next political post if you don't mind.

Oh no! I can still see it. Maybe they're just having intermittent bandwidth problems? I imagine a lot of people are trying to watch it today.

Do try again. You've got to see this.
