Advice to Democratic Presidential Candidates from A Random Voter

In another diary, there is a dustup about whether Obama is like Lieberman, but I think this is a question that really isn't getting at what is on all of our minds: Can we trust you?

I don't mean can we trust you like we trust a family member or a friend. We know you are politicians. We know you are ambitious. What we mean is can we trust you to do a few things that have been talked about, but have, nevertheless, been lacking in national Democratic presidential primary and general election discourse and in general governance for a few decades now.

So, I have decided to have a bit of hubris by acting as a filter for some of my conservative, moderate and liberal friends offline who are typically tired of me talking politics, don't give a shit, or occasionally give me a polite nod pretending to listen. When they do talk, they all tend to say some very general things that may be of use to you.
