A word of congratulations and an endorsement...

First of all I would like to congratulate Sen. Obama on his victory in securing the nomination for the Democratic Party. It is historic that in January of next year we may have the first African-American President in United States history. We may also have the first female vice-president in US History(wink wink nudge nudge).

In saying that, I fully endorse Sen. Barrack Obama for President of the United States. Sen. Obama would right many of the wrongs of the past 8 years. It is now time to put this long primary season behind us and unite together as Democrats. We can no longer allow the Republican Party to define who we are, what we stand for, and what we believe. Together we must stand as men and women, black and white, straight and gay, Christian and Atheist, because we all believe in the promise of America for all people. Not just for the elite few.

Sen. McCain, despite his promises of unity and independence, would be a threat to the very core beliefs that we hold so dear in our hearts. LGBT equality, reproductive freedom, workers rights, and a strong voice for each individual would be trampled during a McCain administration. We can not afford to allow the primaries to weigh heavy on our minds, we must work together to insure we elect Sen. Obama as president, and at the same time usher in stronger majorities in both the House and Senate.

It will take much mending of fences over the next few months to build a winning coalition, but I believe that Sen. Obama, and Sen. Clinton can bring this party back together. As Sen. Obama so often likes to say, Yes We Can, and we can. We can change this world for the better, and it all starts with November 2008.

I agree. When I was considering what to do these past few weeks I considered the options. We were fooled by Bush's promise of unity and bipartisanship. Looking at McCain, I agree, giving him the position of choosing 1-4 justices over the next 4-8 years would be ridiculous.

I don't know if Clinton will be the VP, though. She would bring a lot to the ticket, but can she effectively work as VP? It's not that much of a position, really. She's thinking this question over hard.

Now is our time to take back the White House. Now is our time to restore America's name around the world. Yes we can, and Yes we will!
