    Yes. Excellent reading. It mirrors my own experience when canvassing. GREAT experience. It really made me feel connected to what was happening. Lots of great conversations, especially with voters in the area. Amazing.

    That was really good. Maybe some day, more conservatives will come to understand what this guy understands.

    I'm totally with you. What the world needs more of is people being d**kheads to one another.

    nice read!

    i think he sums it up pretty well...this election has instilled hope in a lot of people.

    people feel it's time for a change:

    a majority( 85% according to AP) of people in the u.s. think this country is on the wrong path and, more specifically, disapprove( 71% according to harris poll) of the last 8 years of bush policy.

    obama may not save the world...but he's offering something people can relate to at this chaotic time: optimism and positive change.

    mccain lost this campaign when he went negative...it's just not working.


    i'm not taking sides here-merely looking at the rhetoric from an advertising standpoint.

    Indeed, the dynamic this cycle has been one of Obama offering his vision of where to take the nation, and McCain arguing that he should be elected because he's not Obama.

    Kerry said to elect him because he wasn't Bush, and we all know how well that worked for him.
