I know I’ve been going a little Obama-crazy on this blog, but I felt this endorsement by Colin Powell speaks volumes.
“Powell said a major part of his decision to turn his back on his own party was his conclusion that Obama was the better option to repair frayed U.S. relations with allies overseas.”
“… I have great respect for John McCain’s service to this country and I know he loves it dearly and honors those who serve. But he is one of the few Senators of either party who oppose this bill because he thinks it’s too generous. I couldn’t disagree more. At a time when the skyrocketing cost of tuition is pricing thousands of Americans out of a college education, we should be doing everything we can to give the men and women who have risked their lives for this country the chance to pursue the American Dream…
Some of the most inspiring are those you meet at places like Walter Reed Army Medical Center. They are young men and women who may have lost a limb or even their ability to take care of themselves, but they will never lose the pride they feel for their country. They’re not interested in self-pity, but yearn to move forward with their lives. And it’s this classically American optimism that makes you realize the quality of person we have serving in the United States Armed Forces.”
New York governor Eliot Spitzer is known for rooting out corruption and being a high-minded individual.
But looks like he was caught with a prostitute. Repeatedly.
While it’s bad enough that this shows his hypocrisy, he’s also married with 3 kids.
I see Texas and Ohio decided to remain the butt of American jokes by doing this:
Hillary Clinton scores wins in Texas and Ohio
He’ll go into a hostile crowd and still say what may be unpopular.
And deliver it in a way that he can sway them to his (much more enlightened) view.
Ralph Nader has announced he is running for President… again.
Okay buddy… you had your shot in 2000. You barely registered in 2004… why are you trying again in 2008?
I think he needs to go on a date.
According to this MSNBC article, Hillary seems to be losing her confidence.
“And to a person, these aides and advisers praised Mrs. Clinton and said that she had been a better candidate than her campaign strategy and operation reflected.”
Why does this always seem to be the case? The view from the media has portrayed Hillary as the one who is always thinking about campaign strategy, how to deal out an attack, how to respond, etc. as opposed to focusing on issues and governance.
I guess she can blame her campaign manager(s) if she loses.
“The most important thing we can do right now is to reengage the American people in the process of governance. To get them excited and interested again in what works and what can work in our government, to make politics cool again and important again and relevant again. Don’t tell me words don’t matter.” – Barack Obama
