Why the Democrats must prevail in 2008

I’m a passionate advocate for Barack Obama and the change he represents from what we’ve had to live with the last eight years of the Bush Administration. 

Never in my lifetime did I think that the U.S. and the world would have a President and Vice-President of the U.S.A that have represented such a train wreck for the American people and the people of the world.

The thought of John McCain prevailing in this upcoming election sickens me.  I have a great deal of respect for both the military and public service of John McCain but don’t see that experience as an entitlement to becoming President of the United States of America. 

I don’t want 4 more years of Bush; the world doesn’t want 4 more years of Bush.  McCain represents the status quo.  I’m not interested.  So, John McCain, thanks for the offer to be President, but, I think the far better choice is Barack Obama and Joe Biden to lead this country moving forward.

Barack Obama is an intellectual.  I’m an intellectual.  But, he’s going to have to make his messages crisper if he is to prevail in the 2008 presidential election.  The American public favors simplicity in messaging.  Barack–please tighten things up.

There’s a lot at stake in this election.  One of the most horrifying prospects of a McCain victory is the long term implications of swaying the balance of the Supreme Court from a 5-4 conservative-liberal balance to an even more conservative court.  Is this what we want?  No.  Imagine a 7-2 skewed conservative court imbalance.  Yikes!

There’s a huge difference between what McCain offers in terms of our future and what Obama offers.  I’ll be focusing on those differences in future posts.

Thanks for reading!    Democrat Dave
