Please Vote Obama This Tuesday

The G'st is proud to join living Kennedys, Ted and Caroline in endorsing Barack Obama for president. February 5 is Super Tuesday, when 52% of all primary delegates are at stake. Odds are you'll be voting then. And my friends, I know there are some of you out there who are thinking about voting for Hilary Clinton. And I would like to dissuade you from that. There's a lot I want to say, but I don't want to distract from the matter at hand. So first, the evidence:

Two very important, must-read articles on the Clinton's brutal and racist attacks on Obama.
Ghettoizing Barack
Obama’s Hollow Victory

These are the options:
Clinton v. McCain
Obama v. McCain
Clinton v. Romney
Obama v. Romney

Only Obama can energize the American voter, not only to win in November, but to win so decisively as to have a mandate for change. In Obama we finally have a candidate the people don't need to be tricked into liking. A candidate who's best spokesman for his ideas is himself. A candidate who's core ideas and personal convictions come from within, not from polls and consultants.

I realize there are a lot of women out there who would like to see a woman elected president. I would too. But seriously, not this woman. While so many of us had the common sense to oppose going to war with Iraq, she voted for the Iraq War. Her Senate career proves her to be a friend of the defense (WAR) industry, the bane of American freedom and independence. Our great nation has never needed change more, not just for progress, but for survival. Having the same two families in the White House for 24-28 years is poison for a democracy.

If you want change. If you want a better America. If you want to tell Bush, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!" Only one candidate can do that. Only one candidate will change the course Dick Cheney has set this nation on. Please join me in supporting Obama at the primaries.

It was one of the most public manifestations to date of the odd friendship and mutual need of two dynasties that, on the surface at least, have almost nothing in common. But as President Bush put it in an interview with CBS News last month, "Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton." Mr. Bush made the remark in a telling exchange with Bob Schieffer, who said, "Well, you know, if Senator Clinton becomes president."

"There we go," Mr. Bush said.

"Maybe we'll see a day," Mr. Schieffer continued.

"Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton," Mr. Bush responded.
