Obama’s Quest / America’s Impossible Dream?

This is your chance to be one of many, and through “E Pluribus Unum” – “Out of many, One”. A more united America will grow. In Barack Obama’s own words, “A more perfect union”.This time, the power of your voting choice can change your life, change America and thus change the world. This day will be yours to remember.

A Dear John Letter

But as bad judgement would have it, in looking for a running mate you got “impalined” by lipstick.The Alaskan red on a pitbull look. A little too aggressive for Estee Lauder to sell I believe. John since you’ve been palinised, you now seem paralysed. Why in the name of Arizona John, would you choose a running mate like Sarah Palin, aka, Barracuda?

Leadership & The Measure

Now that Democrat Senator Barack Obama has returned to the United States from his week long sojourn through the theatres of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, including meetings with the leaders of Iraq, Afghanistan, Germany, France and Great Britain and addressing a 200,000 strong public rally in Berlin, it is time to take a closer look at the qualifications of his opponent, the Republican Senator for Arizona, John McCain and another former Republican for fair measure.

Come Judgement Day

After all of the debates, all of the caucuses, all of the primaries, all of the expense, all of the public infighting, and the possibility of a Party split of such magnitude, the Republications would be gifted the keys to the White House; the burning question for the fence sitting Superdelegates must be; When should we act and how should we act? Doing nothing is fast disappearing as an option. Delay is risking everything. And for what! Playing russian roulette with the Party’s future,is a very dangerous game.

Fair Trade Vs Free Trade

I speak of states like Pennsylvania, Indiana and Ohio to name a few. Commonly known in political speak as the ” rust belt states,” these used to be prosperous regions, but no longer. They have become places where many people as victims of political ineptitude and neglect continue to suffer the consequences of long term unemployment, and the remorseless socio-economic destruction this bequeaths. Such is their plight .

Separate Tables!

The DNC should recognise that in Barack Obama, they don’t just have their nominee – they have the next President of the United States of America. One further important consideration. In their nature and conduct, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama sit at separate tables in life. Oil and water do not mix, neither does such an implausible political partnership.
