When Barack Obama appeared in Salem, Oregon one of the people got up and asked him what she should tell friends that were fence sitters in order to get them to support his candidacy.
Here’s the video of the event. I think he was gracious about the answer, as well as very thoughtful. He openly admits that they’re very much the same but then goes on to illustrate the differences.
This is why he should be our president. Instead of someone like George W. Bush whose off the cuff remarks have cost the U.S. dearly, we need someone who is a thinker, someone who can help to repair the damage done by the neo-cons.
And in other encouraging news, it seems people are on to the Republican game. So we could see both the congress and White House flip to the Democrats in 2008. Oh I hope the hell so, a concession would have McCain as President and a solid Democratic majority in Congress.
