We will begin airing a new TV ad tomorrow highlighting Obama’s ability to unify the country and restore trust in our government. The thirty-second spot, entitled “Unify,” features quotes from four newspapers that have endorsed Obama in the New Hampshire primary: the Boston Globe, the Nashua Telegraph, the Portsmouth Herald, and the Valley News.
Proud to be a NH staff member for Barack Obama’s movement for change.
Please share widely!
As a biracial candidate who was raised in different faiths and backgrounds, and yes a liberal who can speak the language of faith, patriotism, and fiscal responsibility that the Republicans have monopolized, I feel that Barack Obama is the best candidate to bring the country together and, heal the wounds of years of polarization and division, and let us get to work to fix the pressing problems we face at home and abroad.
p>Hillary Clinton and I will admit for the first time that she would make a decent President just with her resume and ideas alone, will bring back the partisan battles of the 90s and reinvigorate the dying ideals of this current Republican party. Edwards is a proud class warrior and I only see him alienating people rather than bringing them together.
p>We are an America of many faiths, many opinions, certainly many businesses big and small, many cultures, many political viewpoints, and we need a real leader who can speak to all those facets of America. Will Obama have detractors? Sure, and so did the best, Lincoln, TR, and FDR hardly had the full support of the American people, but they had the support of a good cross section of America and enough people on the other side to get really important policies implemented. Barack has the vision, the background, and yes the experience in getting this done.
I think you got a dangling modifier there (unless you are a biracial candidate yourself)
And brilliant P-R is needed when uplifting a non-performer. Obama says all the right stuff, but if you think about it all there’s really little in his career to give us any substance.
p>Obama is a sitting US Senator. As we saw with Dodd in his rare moment of serious and deeply needed opposition to the current maladministration, Obama could have very easily put a stop to quite a number of things that the Senate let pass. Leaders step out and take a principled stand, then others will follow.
p>Instead he sat on his hands (when he bothered to show at all).
p>The campaign wins one with Kennedy-esque P-R, but this cannot possibly lift this non-starter of a candidate to serious consideration. (Shudder: the same I wrote of Bush in 2000).
p>We don’t need P-R, or “hope”. We need leadership, vision, and some ass-kicking.
p>The only candidates who offer anything close to this are Gravel and Kucinich, and the only things they’re lacking are money to buy the fancy P-R and media with some respect for the public it allegedly serves.
