Saxby spoke today and seemed to give credit to Palin and the four campaign stops she made on Monday. I live in Atlanta and GA is a red, red state and I think Saxby would have won if no one
campaigned for him. It disgusts me to see the Sarah spin.
My brother-in-law and his wife are long-time Arizona residents and Republicans. Both are voting for Obama. My brother-in-law says it is because he 'knows' McCain and considers him useless. I am not sure what to make of it, but at least it adds 2 votes to the popular vote.
Thanks for this diary. I also am an Obama supporter but I also love the Clintons. I watched Bill and Hillary at the recent event in Scranton(?) and was moved by their speeches. I'm proud to be a Democrat. I live in Atlanta and also support Jim Martin for Senate-since he received some Party funding, I have seen more commercials for him; I'm hoping ;)
I will feel like giving up, but I won't. If the unthinkable happens, we will still have a Congressional majority, and that is at least something. I am much more terrified at the prospect of Palin as VP, and I will write letters and donate to any group that wants to ruin her politically. I have been pro Obama since this thing started, but when Palin was nominated my vote changed from pro-Obama to anti-Palin.
I'm in Dekalb but I am waiting to vote on Election Day. I am excited about Jim Martin.
I may be naive, but I sent his campaign 50$
last week and I actually got a little signed thankyou card in the mail. I am a sucker for good manners, so I am sending him more today ;)
I don't like this ad. Millions of Americans have survived cancer (I am one of them) and the ad serves as a reminder that cancer is a time bomb just waiting to go off. I think it should just focus on the release of health records-not the grim prognosis. It may backfire and make folks feel sorry for McCain.
"Sometimes I growl, shake myself and spatter a few red
drops for history to remember. Then--I forget.
When I, the People, learn to remember, when I, the
People, use the lessons of yesterday and no longer
forget who robbed me last year, who played me for
a fool--then there will be no speaker in all the world
say the name: "The People," with any fleck of a
sneer in his voice or any far-off smile of derision.
The mob--the crowd--the mass--will arrive then."
I the People has learned to remember.
Vote Obama/Biden 08
I don't think you should be too heartbroken. I think a lot of what we see is just the narrative traditional media wants us to see- a soap opera drama. I have been watching the pundit free, attack political-ad free, convention coverage on C-SPAN, and to be honest, it is inspiring.
I'm ashamed to say I didn't know too much about Bayh, thanks for the information and links.
Bottom line for me, I'm happy with whoever Obama picks, as long as we win.(Hillary would make my heart happy though)
