This year has been tough for Democrats...a year when it was all but certain we would win the election with a land slide we have experienced in party fractioning. Hopefully we can seal the rift before election day. Cheers to you for sending out olive branches.
Hillary was awesome tonight..if she would have been that person during her campaign...I may have never given another candidate a look. I am so happy to be able to send her an honest compliment and have restored respect for her.
PUMA and like minded. Not clinton supporters in general. Many Clinton supporters have acted in good nature and joined forces with us for a common cause. I am talking about those spiteful people who have made it their mission to see Obama lose and would prefer to have McCain elected even knowing how pitiful and dangerous he is. There is not enough difference between Hillary and Barack to drive anyone to McCain, which does not share our progressive values. I just makes my blood boil.
They are doing this against their self interest. I have read some of their diaries on other sites such as Alegre's...they are obsessed in making sure Obama loses and they think they will get Hillary to run in 2012 and will have time to reform all of us Obama supporters in the interim and have time to kick Dean, Pelosi, and Reid out of office. For any PUMA's and like minded...let me explain this to you as clear as I possibly can and I think I can speak for a great deal of Obama supporters.
If you should succeed with your selfish scheme and cost us the race and another four more years of Bush style policies...beware our wrath because you will not reform us...we will not forget what you have done and we will pay you back two fold, we can play the same BS game...you are warned.
While Biden was not enegizing enough to make a strong push for President, he is plenty strong enough for VP. I have always liked Joe...yes some of his votes may have gone in the wrong direction, but hey...everyone makes mistakes and they can be fixed.
I think Biden will compliment Obama perfectly and ease the shakes of those stradling the fence over the experience and national security issue. Come on Dems lets get behind the candidates and show the GOP that we can be a united and strong party rather than a bunch of weak liberal hissy fit pitchers.
You are calling out Obama as being corrupt and a danger to our country. First and foremost...which candidate defended special interest? which candidate was mostly funded by special interest? which candidate did not want to disclose their tax records and library records due to ties with Dubai and other connections that would come forth?
There is nobody in their right mind that can say McCain is less dangerous than Barack Obama..well at least no Democrat.
I read about this PUMA stink bag of an organization and personally anyone associated with them can take a long trip off a short pier...if you align with this group, you are no Democrat and I and every other Democrat REJECT you and slot you in the likes of Joe Lieberman.
Obama believes that trade with foreign nations should strengthen the American economy and create more American jobs. He will stand firm against agreements that undermine our economic security.
* Fight for Fair Trade: Obama will fight for a trade policy that opens up foreign markets to support good American jobs. He will use trade agreements to spread good labor and environmental standards around the world and stand firm against agreements like the Central American Free Trade Agreement that fail to live up to those important benchmarks. Obama will also pressure the World Trade Organization to enforce trade agreements and stop countries from continuing unfair government subsidies to foreign exporters and nontariff barriers on U.S. exports.
* Amend the North American Free Trade Agreement: Obama believes that NAFTA and its potential were oversold to the American people. Obama will work with the leaders of Canada and Mexico to fix NAFTA so that it works for American workers.
* Improve Transition Assistance: To help all workers adapt to a rapidly changing economy, Obama would update the existing system of Trade Adjustment Assistance by extending it to service industries, creating flexible education accounts to help workers retrain, and providing retraining assistance for workers in sectors of the economy vulnerable to dislocation before they lose their jobs.
