For a decade now, the people of Nebraska's 2nd District have been represented by the "Boy Congressman" Lee Terry. If you don't know who he is, be careful not to confuse him with the guy from the Stride gum commercials, which is an easy mistake to make:
The creepiness of their resemblance lasts even longer than the flavor of the gum.
Anyways, in 2006, Lee made energy issues the central theme in his campaign. However, after 8 years of doing nothing (as everyone knows the government is supposed to do) on the issue - or for that matter, any issue other than the contentious debate over post office naming - he's feeling vulnerable. Therefore, Terry is taking a page out Bush's 2004 play book - if your constituents keep demanding that you "do something," just scare them into voting for you.

One of the things I've been struggling with as a democrat is the unanswered question -- is Obama going to push a progressive, centrist or conservative agenda. I honestly don't know. He's taken some of Hillary Clinton's plans and said he'd advocate for those, some of John Edward's as well. But then, apparently he's taken some of Ron Paul's and Rudi Guiliani's ideas as well. Good ideas are everywhere, but I want my president to be able to discern good ideas from bad ones. I've suffered for 7 years 2 months under a president whose ideas were not his own, and as such he didn't have the ability to adjust and steer new courses when things went terribly awry. I don't want that again.
In today's Washington Post there was an editorial called Obama Enigma. Part of it talked about his reputation as the most liberal senator in the Senate, and then there was this:

I feel I need to state this in plan english. I feel that we as libs have lost our way and need to really look at what is at stake in this very exciting and ever changing campaign.
I am a liberal and I am damn proud of it!
I am a liberal because "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness", I believe in that statement to its fullest!
I am a liberal because I believe that no one should be treated like a second class citizen and should be discriminated against in the Constitution.
I am a liberal because I believe that no longer should a single mother have to choose between putting food on the table or being able to pay for her child's doctor bill. Or for her own health bill!
I am a liberal because I believe that our international reputation is of the upmost respect, and when I or anyone else goes to different countries, that they are welcomed!

Do we really know Barack Obama? He's so far out of the mainstream that the national journal ranked him as the most liberal member in the U.S. Senate:
more liberal than Hillary Clinton
more liberal than John Kerry
he's even more liberal than Ted Kennedy
While in Illinois Barack Obama
* he refused to protect our children from sex shops near their schools.
*he sided with molesters over the victims of abuse
*he even refused to protect newborn babies who survived abortions
Now in Washington Barack's up to his same old liberal tricks.
Call Barack Obama and tell him, that's not the kind of "change" I want in the "white house"
