My favorite quote today, is from a story in the New York Daily News. It is from Senator Hillary Clinton who was stumping in Florida for Senator Barack Obama:
Clinton argued that returning Republicans to the White House “is like asking the iceberg to save the Titanic.”
Arianna Huffington gives Barack Obama 7 points of advice, many documented with quotes from leaders who chose to lead rather than follow the false god of polls.
Saturday, Hillary Clinton did the right thing, and she did it with much grace and in a positive way. As she has said, it is now time for Democrats to come together and correct the course that this country has been on. For us to continue on the course that bush (and believers in his policies) has stubbornly followed, is insane.
Oh, and for those (alleged Hillary supporters) who say they will vote for McCain/bush rather than Barack Obama, the jig is up. Even if the news programs don’t get it, we all know you are really Republicans attempting to split the Democratic vote. It’s the only thing that makes sense.
I was wandering around the blogisphere reading comments by people about the Pennsylvania primary election, when I came across one comment response in which the writer spewed on and on about his hatred of Barack Obama and how if Hillary Clinton didn’t get the nomination, he was definitely voting for McCain.
I know if Hillary is not given the presidential nomination, I will definitely vote for McCain. McCain is a “mild” conservative — a moderate and has very little in common with Bush. I will never vote for Obama
He then goes on to tell us that Barack Obama is a liar and can’t be trusted and so on and so forth (without any citations or references). Obviously this person is angry and for some reason feels that it is Obama’s fault. It seems to me, that many of the Hillary supporters (at least on the web) fall into this manic, screeching, hatred hurling category, and very few of their blogs relate to issues. More of them seem to fall into the name calling category instead. There are a few who seem thoughtful and sane, though.
Anyway, all of that is to let you know that MoveOn.org is asking for peoples’ feedback on their 30 second Barack Obama ads. You’re asked to rate the submissions on degree of positiveness, creativity, and overall message. I like Barack Obama because, yes, of the hope and “things can be different” attitude, but what it all boils down to, is that it’s not about him winning, it’s about them winning. They are what this election is about. This is one of my favorite ads.
On my visit to Barnes & Noble today, I purchased the Barack Obama book, The Audacity of Hope, in paperback. It looks interesting. I’ll let you know what I think, after I finish reading it.
