Can anyone get me the exact Hillary Clinton quote from her speech tonight, the one about Harriet Tubman and how we had to keep going. If you see the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches, keep going.. something like that?

3 Duran


Another celebrity fan

My favorite group (hell, my favorite ANYTHING) is Duran Duran. Their bassist, John Taylor, just released this birthday message and he talks quite a bit about Obama: http://www.duranduran.com/wordpress/?p=14045 He's also been wearing an Obama shirt on tour.

Howdy from DC

Hi Folks,
I just found this community, but wondered why so little activity here. Is there another more active LJ community for Obama, or is it really just that everyone's on Facebook these days? :P

Anyway, I wanted to say hi, and also post some videos I shot at Saturday's DNC RBC meeting, showing the utter rudeness of Clinton supporters inside the meeting. I'll put them behind a cut.

Obama t-shirts in bulk and singles!

I was thinking about ways to do some creative fund raising/promotion and drew a design for an Obama '08 t-shirt. I hope these shirts can inspire and promote Obama's image.

An active Obama community




This community is getting no activity and perhaps some of you even forgot that Obama still has a strong grassroots base.  If you're still interested in helping out the campaign, or even just following what the Senator is doing and saying than add obama_2008to your freinds list.  It's updated at least once a day with the latest news about Barack and sometimes, when we're feeling up for it we talk about what we're doing for the grassroots effort.

Get out and volunteer!!

With a keyboard on loan from God, I am the Independent Blogger of the Office of the Independent Blogger. Allow me to introduce you to my site if you haven't heard of it before. I do hope you visit and stay -- add it to a Feed, bookmark it.

My latest post is a satire of Mitt Romney, who is more Elmer Fudd than John Wayne, more Michael Dukakis than George H.W. Bush. It's a look at his -- and his state's -- Looney Toon Politics.

Earlier today, I wrote about Disney recognizing gay relationships, which is good news, and Florida law forbidding people from feeding homeless people, which makes even a sane man wish himself Libertarian!

A couple of days ago I looked at Newt Gingrich's comments about bilingual education and the whole ugly matter of textbooks being censored or neglecting portions of history.

For those of you interested in Congressional politics, I looked at portions of the Democratic agenda and outline the potential pitfalls and my own opinions on these ideas. A small excerpt, in response to Price's warning of the price Democrats might pay for going too far with certain things: "I’ll buy that. If the Democrats, say, pass a bill legalizing gay marriage and pledge to give money to terrorists, they’d be homosexual Ronald Reagans — and out of work come 2008." And then I took a serious look at their agenda. The Democratic Agenda.

Here I chide Bush's chief policy strategist in 2004 for now saying Bush is wrong. (Of course he's wrong -- my argument is that Dowd is not someone to appreciate in any sense of the term because his whole behavior suggests he's an idiot.)

Here, at OkayStupid, I Got It! we've got a look at Online Politics and the recent announcement that Barack Obama raised more money than Hillary did...on the Internet, and the dishonest, ridiculous manner the whole situation was covered in by the media and on the Internets. (And here we've got a deep apology to Barack Obama's intern...who I told that I was a Republican because I can't possibly donate to his campaign on principal or prudence.)</a> (And here, on a final note on the matter, we've got a better look at the media's coverage of Obama/Clinton and a casual look at billionaires v. government when it comes to newspapers.)

A short post here, pithy, that would be longer in summary than whole!

Small post here, too, about Thompson's Presidential announcement. An excerpt:

I didn’t know that the Department of Health and Human Services was a launchpad for Presidential ambitions, but I suppose it is now with Tommy Thompson’s announcement that he’s running for President. I, for one, am not sure what to make of it. He’s angling himself as a reliable Conservative but that’s what Senator Brownback is in the race for. Perhaps he’ll catch fire if Brownback’s big mouth catches up to him, but otherwise I don’t think he’s got much of a chance to make waves.

Of course, there are hundreds of posts beyond that, and I update daily. I'd like to think I have a good idea what I'm talking about and an excellent sense of humor, but I'll leave that up to you, and I hope you agree to stay at the Office of the Independent Blogger, open daily for business!

Obama Fundraiser.

Here's how it usually works. As we approach March 31st, when campaigns have to file their quarterly fundraising reports, the press and pundits start to obsess over the chase for money.

They value dollars more than people, and bottom lines more than ideas.

Now, don't get me wrong. Like every campaign, this one needs the resources to compete.

But while others may set goals based on raising tens of millions of dollars, we're going to reveal two numbers that say more about what kind of campaign we're running:

- the number of people donating to the cause
- the number of donations we've received from them
And we're not going to talk about the dollars raised until the reporting period is over.

It's simple: get more people involved, more deeply than ever before. Those are our goals for the end of the quarter, and for the rest of this campaign. Whether you've given before or this will be your first time, you can make a statement that people count.

I'm asking you to stand up and be counted -- will you make a donation now?

So why these two figures?

The number of people giving shows the wide breadth of support for a campaign that seeks a new kind of politics.

Cut.Collapse )

In a democracy, it's the people that count.

Thank you,
Barack Obama
